Pagani Zonda HH – Click above for image gallery

The latest special edition Zonda to come from Pagani is set to be delivered to one ludicrously wealthy American later this year, but before the official wraps come off, a sneak peek of the Zonda HH has arrived online.

There's still no word on who the one-off convertible is being built for, but the proud poppa has detailed his commissioned creation over at TeamSpeed and, as reported previously, it's a keen amalgamation of the Zonda F and Cinque.

The HH starts with the Zonda's carbon-titanium tub, and from there the owner has picked the best bits from the Pagani parts bin. Carbon ceramic brakes hide behind center-locking wheels, while the Cinque's 680-horsepower AMG-sourced V12 resides out back, with spent hydrocarbons shuttled out a titanium exhaust system and sending power to a proper manual gearbox.

While the Monterey Blue exterior and yellow accenting is a go, the design is still be fleshed out and the man behind the HH hopes to have it in his possession by year's end, complete with the F's front clip but minus the massive rear-mounted air intake. In the mystery buyer's own words, "that was a little much."

      I would pass on the blue paint. Who wants paint over their carbon fiber?

      The LF-A engine, 1L-GUE, would be the best in the world, if it would have came out five years ago. [on time]
      The Ferrari 458 claims that title.

      it's also worth pointing out that the Zonda's V12 being an AMG part makes a lot of power at the bottom. Mercedes actually does a better job of making muscle car engines than Ford and Chevy do. Horsepower is a function of torque and rpm, Mercedes engines make most of the torque lower than other euro engines and because of this, even though they rev to 7000rpm you still get "low" hp numbers. You can actually make less torque than another engine but at a higher rev and have more horsepower. The "power" of the zonda is effectively much more than an LFA, and it shows in the performance numbers The cinque is faster in accelerating and has a higher top speed. Not to say that the LFA's engine is bad, it's a great piece of engineering. But Mercedes engines come from a mindset of luxurious speed and that means when you are cruising on the autobahn you keep the revs down so you don't even know said engine is there, and thusly you keep the power there too.

      Considering the production run of the number of zonda's and the number of special editions, has a regular edition ever actually been made?

      On the one hand Mercedes/AMG tend to take a huge engine with twin turbos and get 'only' 600-700HP out of it. However, recently AMG had the record for the highest HP production V8 engine.

      The 6.2L engine in the SLS AMG makes 563HP N/A, which is over 125HP more than a GM V8 of the same displacement makes. Although larger than the LFA's V10, it makes more power than that.

      Actually, the Zondas' engines are all N/A and make anywhere from 600-739HP depending on the model. Most AMG turbo engines make insane amounts of torque - so much that they usually have to be electronically limited so as to not blow the transmissions (we're talking well over 750lb-ft).


      *****As for this one-off model, anyone else think that the HH = Hugh Hefner?*****

      Are you specifically saying that Mercedes implementation of turbos and superchargers is unreliable, or are you dumb enough to think that ALL turbo/supercharged engines are unreliable???

      I have no great love for M-B, but if you are implying that forced induction is unreliable then you clearly know absolutely nothing about engines.

      I'm guessing it's for Mr. Glickenhaus

      Looks like an older version of the Noble with the roof cut off.

      Great for bald guys, the car really says, "Yes i am bald but i can afford this car"
        • 4 Years Ago
        Even I could get laid if I drove that car.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Then it would be the car for RICH bald guys.

      I'm going to bet it's for Wyclef Jean. He likes the Zonda.
