REV TO THE LIMIT
Out of all the top sports cars I will write about in these pages, the Pagani Zonda is probably going to be the least known by readers. The Pagani Zonda is another delicious slice of car lust to come out of Italy and one of the most highly sought after supercars in the world and is the brainchild of Horatio Pagani. There were several variants of the Zonda build since the initial model was launched in 1999. The most recent version is the Zonda R, which tops out at 750 horsepower and hits 60mph in 2.7 seconds, with a maximum speed of 233mph.

It has been a few weeks since my last post. I wasn't sure that the new Pagani would be a match for the old Zonda (one of my favorite cars ever). I have now read over a dozen automotive journalists reviews and watched a bunch of video thrashings of the new Pagani Huayra and it looks like Horatio Pagani has done it again, he has redefined the supercar market.
The highlights of the Huayra include a twin turbocharged AMG V12 good for 730hp and 737lp ft of torque in a car that weighs about 3,000 pounds. That's Veyron levels of performance. Other highlights include the first use of carbon titanium in the tub construction and over 4,000 total parts, with each and every nut and bolt having a Pagani logo inscribed. The acceleration is ludicrous and is described by some automotive journalists as “violent is the best word to sum up a trip from 1500 to 6500 RPM” or “the engine is just phenomenally powerful, and when it’s delivering the full 737lp ft of torque, it scrambles your brain”. And the compliments keep coming; "Nothing will ever be the same again, not once you've experience the ferocious Pagani Huayra" and "a waver of turbo boost sneaks up from behind you, hooks its fingernails into your nostrils and pulls your head back hard".
