The Pagani Zonda was in many ways the final incarnation of the traditional hairy-chested supercar. With its honking, naturally-aspirated Mercedes V12 and none of the hybrid tech of today's billionaire playthings, it was a smash hit when it debuted in 1999.
Times change, technology moves on, and supercar buyers demand newer, faster, crazier machines. So in 2013, after 14 years, Pagani closed the book on the Zonda, replacing it with the swooping Huayra.Advertisement - Continue Reading Below
But that book will open back up for the right (wealthy) customers. Yes, if you've got ungodly amounts of cash, and you're not swayed by the techno-mazing hypercars from Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren, Pagani will gladly build you a brand-new Zonda just like you could've bought half a decade ago.
And if you're really adamant about going old-school, you can ditch the silly flappy paddles for a true three-pedal manual transmission.
That's what the owner of this car did. This one-off Zonda 760 Roadster is powered by a burly 7.3-liter V12 utterly devoid of any sort of forced induction or energy regeneration. It wears aero bits from the track-only Zonda R, and it positively gleams in blue-weave carbon fiber.
It's a stylishly arrogant thumb in the eye of the supercar avant-garde, a reminder that a stonking naturally-aspirated engine, three pedals, and two driven wheels is still the go-to recipe for automotive thrills.
"Screw your all-wheel-drive, your launch control, your hybrid-assist and your shifter paddles," this angular blast from the supercar past screams.
Sometimes, the old ways are the best ways.
Here's a somewhat-annoying video tour of what could very well be the last Zonda ever built. At least, until the next customer asks Pagani to build one.
