BLENHEIM, ONTARIO, CANADA – August 11, 2021 (Motor Sports NewsWire) – RM Sotheby’s Private Sales is thrilled to offer the opportunity to view the 2010 Pagani Zonda R Evolution at its flagship auction in Monterey, 12-14 August. The Zonda R will be displayed at the Monterey Conference Center and is available for immediate acquisition.
An unprecedented attention to detail and a dedicated pursuit of perfection resulted in Pagani creating their first car, the Zonda C12, unveiled at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show; a car which immediately created a stir with its carbon fibre technology, exemplary engineering, distinctive and purposeful lines, remarkable performance, and extraordinary build quality. This combination of desirable traits created a hypercar with a mythical status among the most discerning collectors and enthusiasts, worldwide.
The Zonda’s lengthy production run is unrivaled in its duration amongst supercar models, ensuring Pagani’s exacting and perfectionist approach to product development. In 2007, Pagani introduced their first track-focused model, the Zonda R; the most fearsome and single-minded distillation of the company’s technological capabilities, and a car which is truly regarded as the marque’s “tour de force”.
Arguably the most beautifully designed and best sounding modern supercar, the 2010 Pagani Zonda R Evolution offered for sale, encompasses unparalleled quality and specification, and is the fifth of just ten examples produced between 2009 and 2011. The stunning exterior is rendered in its exposed, woven carbon fiber bodywork with “tricolore” accents throughout. It ispowered by a naturally aspirated, Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR derived 6.0-liter V-12 engine producing 800 horsepower, paired to a six-speed sequential transaxle and features a F1-derived carbon fiber intake channel. With a fantastic power-to-weight ratio and lightning-quick gear changes, the Zonda R sprints to 60 mph in a mere 2.7 seconds and boasts a reported top speed of over 230 mph – representing a track weapon of the most ferocious variety which still holds the record as the fastest non-series, production-based, gasoline-powered car to lap the legendary Nürburgring ‘Nordschleife’ circuit. The car was later returned to the Pagani factory, and upgraded to R Evolution-specifications, one of very few to receive such upgrades.
The race proved V12 engine, combined with the exceptional build quality of the car, the Zonda R is unrivaled and offers its driver a unique driving experience without any compromise. As public appearances of the Zonda are rare, this example will surely turn heads and be the center of attention for its next owner. Offered for the first time publicly on American soil, this 2010 Pagani Zonda R Evolution is undoubtedly one of the most impressive cars of its time (Price Upon Request).
In addition to the 2010 Pagani Zonda R Evolution, the 2016 Porsche 911 R will be on display in Monterey (Asking price: $525,000).
