Ask the average person what Pagani Zonda Tricolore means and they’ll probably guess it’s a delicious Italian dish. However, ask someone at the Geneve auto show, where said Pagani Zonda Tricolore is debuting, the same question and they’ll likely guess it’s a special edition of one of Italy’s most spectacular supercars.
In this case, they’re both right. Pagani’s one-off Zonda Tricolore is both a savory treat and a spectacular sports car, built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Italy’s Frecce Tricolori, the nine-plus-one aerobatic training squadron based at Rivolto Air Force Base in northern Italy.
There’s a lot to love about the new Pagani Zonda R, starting with the Mercedes/AMG V12 bolted directly onto the rear of the chassis. The 6.0 liter monster outputs 750 horsepower, enough to take the car to 60 mph in less than 2.7 seconds on race tires, among the fastest acceleration of anything on four wheels, anywhere. The exhaust note is phenomenal and the sound going down the straight at the Nurburgring is second to none. Also, the non painted carbon fiber body is absolutely gorgeous. This is one hell of a race-ready exotic and it better be for 1.7 million. The new race ready Pagani Zonda R, it’s worth every cent.
