Enjoy these first images of a Pagani Zonda R in its natural environment; the race track. It's not dry out there and there's some residual ice on the sides of the track.

Here are the first images of the Pagani Zonda R out in the open. The car is shot at a race track where in two of the pictures it's parked next to another Zonda. Unless the driver was rain-master Sebastian Vettel this particular run could not have been too fruitful thanks to a visibly wet surface. The Zonda R was naturally devised for the track experience in more ways than the already-high-performance Zonda range was meant to handle. Ironically the man who brought the idea of a Zonda R is not interested in racing at all. He is however still a valued customer at Pagani with three other Zondas already parked in his garage. Thankfully the ride is not too harsh, enabling others like him to enjoy it even off the track.

Powered by the 6.0-litre V12 from Mercedes-Benz AMG, the Zonda R makes a formidable 750hp (552kW) and a maximum torque figure of 710Nm. Changing the gears is a 6-speed sequential transmission. The car is 394mm longer than the other Zonda models, its wheelbase is increased by 47mm and its track is up 50mm. It comes with magnesium forged rims and slick tyres, making a wet track an even more fun place to drive it on.
