Evo founder Harry Metcalfe somehow convinced Pagani to let him take the Zonda 760 RS for a spin, and the result is just another day in the life of an Evo editorial director. The 760-horsepower customer special is, according to Metcalfe, for those who aren't happy with the 'regular' Zonda's 650 horsepower and really want a Zonda R for the road... plus 20 more horses.

We'd tell you more, but you really should get straight into the video. The details on the 760 RS are fantastic, but the engine note is, how you say, stupefecante. Scroll down to enjoy.

      This car does not need to be replaced, just keep producing 1 off specials.

      Sexiest supercars on the planet, no question about it.

      My dream car of all time! Way better than the Huyara (or however you spell it). Dayum, lucky bastard who gets that sucker!

      When the 760RS downshifted for that switchback corner there, I swear it sounded like a shotgun went off somewhere in the engine compartment. I've heard downshift backfires, but that was something else. I guess it just goes perfectly with this car's eargasmic engine sound and over the top lunacy that makes it so special and endearing. 760 horsepower!!! With that much power, all carbon body, and absolutely massive rear wing, it really is a Zonda R for the road. It's going to be extremely hard for the bulkier looking, heavier, turbocharged, wierd named Huayra to capture even half the maniac soul and thrill power of the finest of the Zondas, but it's catching on to me nonetheless.

      Gorgeous! Definitely worth it! Would buy one in a heart beat over a Veyron any day.

      I would not be happy with someone driving my 1.6M euro car before I did. And I certainly couldn't be happy about him going so quickly through the gears, considering it's brand new.

        To be fair, EVO asked permission first. Plus it's not like any mishaps wouldn't be immediately and freely fixed, since they were testing it right down the road from the factory. I think it's cool that the owner would do that; makes me believe that he's relatively laid back, and just another car fan who's glad that he can share his fortune in this relatively small way - like that One-77 owner in New Zealand who regularly lets strangers check out/sit in his car. Better than being some selfish trophy collector who'd never let the car see the light of day.

      I'm sorry but I'll take the Zonda over the Huayra any day due to the design. The Zonda's design is never gonna be outdated and is still a work of art.

      Decibel for decibel, nothing else on the road sounds better than this. Nothing at all. The only cars that sound better are Mazda's 767B and Furai - which are killed by their (a) weird idle engine noise and (b) not being production cars lol. God I love this car.
