So, now that we have established the Zonda R's status, within the realm of motoring, one can certainly understand the importance when a few new photos of the beast emerge.

Forget the Diablo, this is the supercar the Devil would drive, particularly in black-on-carbon exterior with red stripe. Actually, the term supercar isn't even sufficient. More like “super ballistic ultra supercar” would be more suitable. So, now that we have established the Zonda R's status within the realm of motoring, one can certainly understand the importance when a few new photos of the beast emerge.

So besides looking absolutely sinister, why is the Zonda R so special? Well, besides blurring the lines of a homologated GT track car along the lines of the Ferrari FXX and Maserati MC12, the Zonda R is essentially a privateer racer ineligible for organized racing. Therefore, as a motorsport outcast, the Zonda R is relegated to the street. Carrying an AMG built 6.0 litre V12 producing 750 hp at 8000 rpm and 710 Nm of torque for the price tag of $1.2 million USD, the Zonda R is merely a play toy for the very wealthy. It's the type of excess every car enthusiast hates to admit lusting after.
