Remember when Bugatti, way back in 2007, decided to make the ultra-expensive and ultra-exclusive even more expensive and exclusive? And came up with the Veyron Pur Sang, which was a beautiful thing with only five in the whole world? Well, it looks like Pagani is going that way too, with the five-run super-special Zonda Cinque.
Not too much has been released about this car, but what there is is interesting. The Zonda Cinque is a street legal version of the new Zonda R, which should make the lucky few who can own them even more happy. What’s also interesting about this car is the new goodies that will be featured on future Paganis:
First, there is this new carbon-titanium composite that was developed specifically for the Cinque by Pagani. From what I gather, it is lighter and stronger than carbon fiber, and will be used throughout the car. A new Cima sequential six speed transmission will also be present. A new titanium and magnesium composite suspension is included as well. The Cinque also has new rolling stock, in the form of forged monolock multiple piece wheels with titanium fasteners, all covered in extra-wide Pirelli PZeros. Beastly 15 inch Brembos complete that package.
Now to the engine. This monster is powered by an equally impressive 7.3 liter V12 that pumps out 678 stallions and 575 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is rated at around 217 mph, and it blasts to 60 in around 3.3 seconds.
God, I want one of these.
Controlling it all is a Bosch designed ABS and traction control, along with a race-style Automac sequential gearbox.
As for the interior, it is beautiful and pays exquisite attention to detail, just like it is in every Pagani. Carbon fiber trim and leather cover everything in tasteful applications. Four point seatbelts, roll bars, and custom Toora seats remind the driver of the Cinque’s racing heritage. All in all, it is fantastic.
Put it all together and you have yourself one fine, sweet ride.
Which is where we hit the snag.
The snag being the insane price of $1.5 million dollars, and the afore-mentioned limited run of only five in the world.
Ah, what the heck. If you have the money, then you get the perks.
In this case, a really, really nice (and oh so fast) perk.

Top Speed: 217 mph
