Pagani Zonda Frecce Tricolore – Click above to watch video after the jump

Italy's equivalent of America's Blue Angels is called the Frecce Tricolori, or Tricolor Arrows. Otherwise known by its official name, the 313th Gruppo Addestramento Acrobatico, the aerobatic team celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The squad recently brought the smoke and cartwheels with its fleet of Aeromacchi MB-339 jets, while Pagani added a little extra razzle-dazzle by taking its special edition Tricolore Zonda to the Rivolti Air Force base for some fun-and-gun. As usual, there's beauty everywhere. Follow the jump for the vid.

      Frecce Tricolori - now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Not since they killed 70 people in Ramstein.

        Please include Pierre Levegh in your leveling of charges, since you seem to think that accidents in sporting and demonstration events are all open to criminal prosecution.

        Ummm... yeah... about that. It's nice to see you brought that up in a subtle, sensitive manner.

        Kudos to you, Captain Obvious.

        If you have something to add to the conversation, do so. Otherwise, you are not doing your argument, whatever that happens to be, any service.
        • 4 Years Ago
        You're off the deep end now.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Oh, sorry, I should have been more subtle and sensitive in reminding readers that this organization, that Pagani is honoring, massacred 70 people. What you really meant to say, is how dare anyone bring that up, or worse, inform young readers born in the '80s of what happened. Gotcha.
        • 4 Years Ago
        "Massacred"?

        In one word, you have convicted the Frecce Tricolori of deliberate murder.

        Gotcha.

        "Frecce Tricolori - now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Not since they killed 70 people in Ramstein. "

        ^ your post on a thread devoted to Pagani's honoring a precision aerobatic team that had a terrible accident 22 years ago.

        Now... how did your comment "add to the conversation", other than to dredge up a bygone tragedy?

        What was your point in bringing the event from '88 up? How did it contribute to the article about the Zonda Tricolore?

        My only "argument" is that the car is awesome, the flight team is awesome, and you are insensitive and revel in your internet anonymity.

        You are not paying attention. I said if it wasn't an airshow, they could have been charged with manslaughter.

      Epic Win.

      This has the same effect as the reventon, when you see it you are just speechless.

      Juxtaposing super cars against jets, as done in this video, or in a show like Top Gear, always ends up making the super cars look insignificant. Not a smart idea. For effect, compare the super car to a car that is not so super, and leave it at that.

        • 4 Years Ago
        Never seen a Zonda in that colour before, but good god that looks amazing.
      • 4 Years Ago
      What a beautiful machine! Of all the hyper cars in the world, the Zonda is most certainly my favorite. I would love to see this in my custom garage one day.

      Wish Koenigsegg and the Swedish Air Force would do something like this to show up Swedish engineering...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Gripen vs CCX? Count me in
      • 4 Years Ago
      awesome! anyone knows the background music of the video?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Pagani Zonda = Italian awesomeness (next to Ferrari of course:)
        • 4 Years Ago
        Zonda > all , including Ferrari.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Anyone else think the plane was trying to hump the Pagani at the end there?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Do you blame it?
        That car is sex on wheels..............
