Ferrari may have claimed the name Italia with the new 458, but rival Modenese exotic automaker Pagani is hoisting the Tricolore flag with a new special edition Zonda.
Presumably the last iteration of the hyper-exotic Zonda before the new C9 hits production, the Tricolore edition honors the Italian air force aerobatics team, known as the Frecce Tricolori. Based on the exclusive Zonda Cinque, the Tricolore is constructed from a special carbon-titanium weave left bare but for a clear blue lacquer. Red, white and green stripes run up from the nose along the top of the car's surface, passing by the unique vertical fin air intakes.
LED running lights are also unique to the Tricolore, of which only one example will be built and sold at a whopping 1.3 million euros, or about $1.75M in American funds. The Tricolore is slated to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for in-the-carbon photos, but in the meantime, you can check out the images in the high-res gallery.
