Pagani Zonda Cinque

The Pagani Zonda Cinque.

This car is a declination of the "not so exclusive" Pagani Zonda F, and is a special limited edition.

The idea for it came in 2008 from a dealership in Hong Kong. Like all Zondas, the Cinques were built with art and passion by mister Horacio Pagani. That being said, I always like limited editions: not only does it make the car worth spotting, but they also tend to gain in value over the years. Then the car would be both an enthusiast's dream but also a good investment! Oh how I wish I had the money to "make that investment"... and especially drive that!!! ... Oh well, it's always good to dream a bit! Some say the Zonda Cinque is the "road legal" Zonda R...

Like its name suggests, there are only FIVE coupés in the world. But seeing how this cas was such a success, they made 5 roadster in 2009. The original Zonda Cinque has a particular and very recognizable color combo : white, red, black and carbon fiber. But not all of them have it (the client is king and choses the color he wants!), as you can see in the following pictures. This expensive (close to 1,2 million euros... before tax) and exclusive toy comes with a V12 engine by AMG, going up to 750 horse power and doing the 0 to 100km/h in 3,4 seconds. The top speed is said to be as high as 347 km/h!!
The Cinque is, to put it simply, a feline of the road, terrorizing the streets it choses to hunt on. One  particular Cinque from Qatar (plate number "77777") has been seen in London, always next to 1 of the 4 Bugatti Centenaire, and became quite popular among the car spotters and enthusiasts; although the knightsbridge neighborhood didn't like it that much (they never like when the arabs come for summer with their cars lol) = its revs and loud engine has been heard in the heart of London all summer long in 2010.

Funny fact: the Hong Kong car dealership that came up for the idea of the Zonda Cinque had two of them at the same time. Although it's normal considering they had the idea, that's pretty crazy: almost 40% of the whole coupé production!! Check-out the pictures down below! ;)

Why is this car special ? Rare + limited edition + ... ZONDA !!
