From the humble 394bhp C12 up to the bonkers 789bhp Revolucion, here’s the Zonda story

Pagani Zonda Revolucion
This is what happens when you take a Zonda R and plug in the Pagani amplifier: more power, more carbon fibre and, most probably, more noise.
There's the same 6.0-litre AMG V12 bolted directly onto the monocoque as with the R, but in this iteration it makes an astonishing 789bhp and 538lb ft of torque. The carbotanium-tubbed lightweight weighs just 1070kg - less than a ruddy Mini Cooper - and there's the same six-speed sequential gearbox sending those horses to the rear wheels.
There's a new aero package, a new rear diffuser, a DRS system (this gets a hearty thumbs up from TG) and more powerful carbon brake discs all round, 15 per cent lighter than before.
No word on acceleration, but we wouldn't expect a huge leap up on the R's 2.7 second dash to 62mph. But, Pagani's chief test driver Davide Testi reckons the Revolucion could be up to 15 seconds quicker around the Nürburgring than the R. Yowser.
If this really is the end - like the properly proper finally final run-out Zonda then we have but this to say: thank you and good night. Which has been your favourite? Let us know below...
