The original Pagani Zonda, the C12, debuted in 1999 at the Geneva Motor Show. Now Pagani has announced the latest iteration will be the last Zonda; however, similar statements are not new.
Various ‘760 Series’ Zondas have emerged since the Supercar’s ‘end’, including Lewis Hamilton’s ‘760LH’.
Information comes not from Pagani itself but from London-based 3D modelling and graphics company LMM Design, which said it is “creating the full specification” for the car.
This ‘final’ car will be a Pagani Zonda 760 Roadster, making the fifth model in the marque’s 760 Series. LMM Design is responsible for the design, whilst Automobili Pagani in San Cesario Sul Panaro manufacturing facility in Modena, Italy, will build the motor cars.
Like other cars in the Zonda 760 series, this one will likely use the Mercedes-AMG-sourced 7.3-litre V12 engine that makes 750 hp.
LMM Design says it plans to debut this Zonda Roadster in 2022.
The 760 series will consist of custom-built, one-off Zondas renditions of the Zonda commissioned by ‘special clients’ from around the globe.
Also, in 2022, Pagani will debut a new model with the codename C10. The vehicle uses a Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12. The output is only 30-40-hp more than the Huayra, but a lower weight should advantage the proposed give the proposed Supercar. The motor car will be able to select a manual or dual-clutch gearbox.
Pagani plans to build between 280 and 300 examples of the C10. The company claims it has buyers for all of them.
It looks as though Pagani have a hectic time ahead.
