A few years ago, we brought you a report on the speculative values of Pagani supercars. Whether as investments or frivolous purchases, those with the means, it seemed, were paying well above list price to get their hands on one of the rarest supercars on (or off) the market. But that was just as the world was on the brink of financial collapse. Surely with the global economy still in the drink years later, nobody's paying those kinds of figures for something as extravagant as an exotic supercar... right?

Wrong. In fact, it seems, the value for Pagani models has only gone up. According to Evo magazine editor-in-chief (and Zonda owner) Harry Metcalfe, buyers with the means are paying as much as double the already grandiose list price to get their hands on a Zonda or Huayra. Apparently the white Huayra that Pagani displayed at the Geneva Motor Show never reached the Middle Eastern buyer who ordered it a year prior and was supposed to take delivery after the show, having flipped it to another buyer who was willing to pay him an astounding 1.8 million euros for the car. That's $2.35 million in American greenbacks, or twice the 900,000 euro ($1.18m) list price.

Think that was an isolated incident? Hardly. A Zonda F Roadster (said to be the last ever made), a 2008 Zonda F coupe and a used Zonda C12S were all, according to Metcalfe's sources, recently sold for double their MSRPs. So if you've been scrimping and saving every dime to get your hands on a Pagani, better keep saving.

      The level of craftsmanship and detail Pagani, puts into his cars it's easy to see why they are instant classics and already collectible.

      Sounds like a great business plan to me: Buy a Pagani, drive it for a while, sell car and profit.

      "Surely with the global economy still in the drink years later, nobody's paying those kinds of figures for something as extravagant as an exotic supercar... right?" People who buy cars of this caliber came out of recession richer, and yes recession ended for them few years ago.

      Surely they're just paying double for the Zonda, no one in their right mind would pay over list for that monstrosity the Huayra, possibly the ugliest supercar ever made.

      I would be more than happy with a ZR-1 Camero or a 68 Camero SS-396 RS. I would not want this thing in my garage .

        What is a Camero???????? Are they built in Europe? Asia? The CamAro has been around since 1967 and you still don't know how to spell the name correctly. You don't deserve one.
