Pagani Says Goodbye to the Zonda with the Revolucion

Well, we’re certainly sad to see this day come, but we knew that sooner or later, the Pagani Zonda line was going to come to an end.

And here it is…the final version of the incredible supercar, the Pagani Zonda Revolucion:

Pagani Zonda Revolucion 3

Whoa.

It didn’t seem like there could be much done to top the amazing Zonda R, but the team at Pagani have pulled it off.

Built on top of a carbon-titanium monocoque, the Zonda Revolucion weighs in at only 2,359 lbs. To put that into perspective, that’s about the same weight as the Toyota Yaris or Nissan Versa at their lightest.

And keep in mind, the Zonda has a 6.0-liter V12 powerplant, but now it’s producing 800 hp and 538 lb-ft of torque. Imagine the Yaris with that kind of power.

It comes fitted with a magnesium sequential six-speed gearbox that changes gears in only 20ms, and the new Bosch-developed traction control system has twelve settings to fine-tune your setup.

I’ve always thought the Zonda was a better looking car than the Pagani Huayra, as good as it is, and a lot of that was due to its focus on styling and aerodynamics. I feel the Huayra sacrifices style for the sake of being slippery.

But with the Zonda R, Pagani’s made the aerodynamic system incredible, and the same carries over to the Revolucion with even better improvements.

The Revolucion gets new deflectors on the front, a vertical stabilizer mounted on the rear, and a DRS (Drag-Reduction-System) on the rear wing that the driver can change at any time within the cockpit. Holding down the “DRS” button on the steering wheel for more than two seconds engages automatic mode, which is a series of algorithms developed by Pagani during testing.

A new braking system developed with Brembo reduces weight by 15% and increases lifespan of the brakes to last 4x as long as the previous version. They also handle heat dissipation better, keeping the brakes from fading during track use. A big deal in a car like this.

And what’s the price for all this sexiness? A cool 2.2 million Euros, or about $2,874,300 in today’s US dollar.

Better start saving.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
