In the marketplace of extremely exclusive, ridiculously expensive hypercars you might be hard-pressed to find a car manufacturer that outshines Italian car maker Pagani Automobili. Now Pagani has pulled an unexpected move by unveiling a fresh new Zonda named the HP Barchetta, regardless of prior claims that the supercar was now discontinued.
Strictly limited to three units, Pagani Automobili’s Zonda HP Barchetta represents Horacio Pagani’s vision of the perfect hypercar. Valued at 20 million euros, with this particular undertaking the italian-automaker verifies its expertise in producing bespoke masterpieces, merging the workmanship of an artisan, with the qualities of an automotive manufacturer.
The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta still looks like a Zonda, at least when you look at it from the distance. Go closer however and you are going to be aware of the variances between this specific Zonda design and anything else that came before it. On the exterior, essentially the most apparent change may be the cropped windshield. It is a whole lot narrower.
Proceed past the cropped windscreen and other exterior details of the unique Zonda catch your eye. Further alterations include things like carbon fiber modifications such as the front canards and rear wing, in addition to the inclusion of a central scoop that appears a good deal like the Zonda Cinque is having. This isn’t all though because the Zonda HP Barchetta also comes with a distinctly designed set of wheels.
Weighing about 1,250kg, the supercar is powered by a 7.3-liter naturally aspirated Mercedes-AMG V12 which is connected to a six-speed manual transmission. Although official power numbers weren’t published, this is an engine that produces 760hp under certain conditions.
Pagani Automobili will only build three examples of the Zonda HP Barchetta, with the one pictured here is headed to Horacio Pagani’s personal collection.
