The Pagani Zonda may no longer be in production, however there remain some special editions roaming around. One particular model is the Zonda HP Barchetta which is said to cost €15,000,000, which makes it probably the most expensive car on earth.
Several weekends ago, an incredible convoy of Paganis snaked their way from the company’s UK headquarters in north London, through central and down to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. And leading that convoy was Horacio Pagani’s personal Zonda HP Barchetta.
Pagani confirmed the price tag on the unique car. Does that make it the most expensive new car ever? Most likely! It is higher priced than the one-off Rolls-Royce Sweptail, which sold for about $13 million.
The HP stands for company founder Horacio Pagani’s initials. There will just be three HP Barchettas and one of them is owned by him. The other two they intend on building have already been pre-sold.
The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta manufactured by the Uno-di-Uno (one of one) department, a team of specialists that create one-off and incredibly exceptional custom made cars which surpass even the Zonda’s and Huayra’s already high-quality standards. It reflects the Zonda that Horacio Pagani desired for himself.
The roofless design is utterly crazy because it does not have any option for an attachable or convertible soft or hard-top. Among the list of significant design and style features is a cropped windshield, carbon-titanium composite parts from the Huayra and contrasting wheels wherein those on the left side are silver, while those on the right are blue. The rear wheels also get small fairings that cover a third of the wheel well.
The car seats in the Barchetta’s interior feature ivory leather with tartan elements and blue leather highlights. The steering wheel is also trimmed in blue leather and wood as an homage to vintage racing cars. The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta is powered by a 7.3-liter Mercedes-AMG M120 V12 engine, mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
