Pagani Zonda Revolucion unveiled packing 800 hp

  • Pagani Zonda Revolucion
Pagani has released the next iteration of its Zonda: the Revolucion. This new machine boasts a carbon-titanium monocoque chassis, slimming the machine's curb weight to a feathery 2,358 pounds. Engineers managed to pull an astonishing 800 horsepower from the craft's 6.0-liter V12, and torque now resides at 538 pound-feet. Gear shifts come courtesy of a six-speed sequential transmission, and Pagani says the box is capable of swapping cogs in as little as 20 milliseconds. A 12-step traction control system helps keep the whole mix on the road, shiny side up.

Other clever tricks include a drag reduction system, which adjusts the rear wing between two downforce settings. The driver can choose which setting is appropriate for the conditions at any time, though an auto mode can do most of the thinking for you. Carbon ceramic brake discs pressed by Brembo calipers handle the stopping duties. If you want one, you can expect to shovel out 2.2 million euros for the title – that's around $2.9 million at current conversion rates. Hit the full press release below for more information.

Pagani Zonda Revolucion at the 9° Pagani Gathering

The evolution of the species, the revolution in the concept of art applied to pure speed. Pagani
Automobili unveiled the final version of the Pagani Zonda Revolucion to clients and family
members during Vanishing Point 2013 - The International Pagani gathering.

The Pagani Zonda Revolucion is the apex of the celebration of performance, technology and
art applied to a track car. Horacio Pagani and his team have created a car designed to amaze
both on the track and in a car collection.

The central monocoque is carbon-titanium, the needle on the scale stops at 1070 kg. The
AMG Mercedes engine is an evolution of the Zonda R powerplant. The 6.0-liter V12 now
develops an output of 800 hp and 730 Nm of torque, resulting in a power to weight ratio of
748 hp per tonne.

The 6 speed magnesium transversal and sequential gearbox changes gears in 20ms. The
traction control developed by Bosch with 12 different settings and the renewed ABS system,
allows the driver to adapt the behavior of the car to his driving style.

The Zonda R program has always represented the highest expression of the technology at
Pagani Automobili. The aerodynamics feature important innovations, like new deflectors on
the front bonnet, as well as a vertical stabilizer mounted on the rear bonnet.

Pagani Zonda Revolucion also features a DRS (Drag-Reduction-System) on the rear wing.
The system has two different operating modes, both can be activated by the driver at any time.
The manual system is controlled with the DRS button on the steering wheel. The rear wing
changes between maximum and minimum downforce settings, at the occurrence of a lateral
acceleration of + / - 0.8 g and a minimum speed of 100 km / h. Holding down the DRS for
more than two seconds engages the DRS to work automatically according to the algorithms
developed by the Pagani Automobili engineers during the development phase. The result is a
car that is always fast, a strong performer able to take on any circuit in the world.

The Brembo braking system adopts new cutting edge F1-tecnology derived CCMR discs. With
a weight saving of 15% compared to the previous CCM discs, the CCMR offer higher stiffness
and lower operating temperatures on extreme track use. This contributes to the life of the disc
which is increased by four times, with no sign of fading and a significant overall increase in
braking power.

Pagani Zonda Revolucion is the ultimate experience for individuals who want to experience the
thrill of an extreme track experience, in a safe and intuitive machine. Pagani Zonda Revolucion,
like all creatures coming our to the Atelier in San Cesario sul Panaro, is tailor made. An object
where art and science blend to create a perfect synthesis of technology, performance and
aesthetics. A new masterpiece signed by Horacio Pagani.

Pagani Zonda Revolucion is on sale at a price of 2.2 million Euros plus taxes.

Horacio Pagani, Owner and chief designer of Pagani Automobili:

"Limits are made to be overcome. We knew that Pagani Zonda R was already a fast car, the
fastest ever on the Nuerburgring Nordschleife. We knew it would be very difficult to design
and build a car that was even more extreme. But thanks to the creativity of our designers,
engineers, and the whole Pagani family, we created a beautiful object and the fastest Pagani
vehicle ever. A car that I am sure will electrify all our customers and fans all over the world."
