Watch Zonda R blitz the ’Ring

Pagani blitzed the ’Ring with its most extreme Zonda ever – now witness the magnificence on video

A while back, Pagani proudly trumpeted that its Zonda R whizzed around the Nurburgring in 6m47s.

An astonishing feat, you will agree, and no doubt a time likely to stoke the ire of Ferrari, which just happens to make something called a 599XX.

You will hear lots of ‘lap records' and ‘smashing times' and such, but as there is no official Nurburgring Overseer keeping records, times - essentially - mean nothing.

And Pagani - in a most Spartan-like fashion - hasn't mentioned anything about beating Ferrari. Or setting records.

Want to see how they did it? Well, here is six minutes of steel testes action as a Pagani driver nails the £1.3 million, 739bhp Zonda R around the world's most infamous automotive battleground.

Now share it...
