Pagani Zonda Review
In the early 1990s, Argentinean Horacio Pagani, whose company worked with Lamborghini in the field of composite materials, decided to start producing a car of his own design. The result was the mid-engined rear-wheel drive supercar Pagani Zonda C12, which began production at a factory in Modena, Italy in 1999.
The two-seater coupe received a twelve-cylinder Mercedes engine with a volume of six liters and a capacity of 394 l. c., Mated to a manual transmission. This was not enough for the creators of the car, and already in 2000 the company presented a version of the Pagani Zonda C12 S with a seven-liter engine developing 550 l. s., And in 2002 the volume of the power unit was increased to 7.3 liters, and its output increased to 555 forces. In 2003, buyers were offered an open version with a roadster body. The Zonda F coupes and roadsters, introduced in 2005 and 2006, respectively, received the same 7.3-liter engine, but boosted to 602 l. s.
