The wildest ever Pagani Zonda: new HP Barchetta
Roofless, V12-powered one-of-three speedster revealed, is absolutely nuts
Pagani doesnâ€™t really do â€˜regularâ€™. Case in point, the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta, revealed over the weekend at the Pebble Beach Concours dâ€™Elegance.
Little information has been revealed thus far, but you only need a set of eyes to discover that the Italian supercar maker hasnâ€™t lost its penchant for the ballistic. Itâ€™s a Zonda like no other Zonda weâ€™ve ever seen.
Thereâ€™s a thin, wraparound windscreen, and no roof. No folding hard top nor canvas convertible, nada. The roof scoop is present and correct, mind, along with that delectable rear wing to give it proper banzai status. Think Lamborghiniâ€™s mad Aventador J, and youâ€™re about there.
The nutjob Zonda speedster is said to weigh just 1,250kg - we suspect a heavy application of carbon fibre - and features fairings over the rear wheels. Itâ€™s an interpretation of what company boss Horacio Pagani imagined his own Zonda would look like. The 7.3-litre AMG-sourced V12 is on full noise duty, though power and performance outputs havenâ€™t yet been disclosed. Something in excess of 700bhp would be a good bet.
