The Pagani story parts 3 and 4 - Zonda F & R [video]

In this third episode of five "Pagani - The Beginnings" the documentary moves onto the design inspiration and development of the notorious Zonda F.

In 2005 Horacio Pagani designed the Zonda F as a tribute to five-time Formula One World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio. The Zonda F is the first car to show its bodywork in naked unpainted carbon fiber and features a custom AMG-built 7.3-liter V12 engine that generates 602 PS (443 kW / 594 hp) and 759 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque.

The 1230 kg (2711 lbs) supercar has a top speed of 216 mph (348 km/h) and will burn from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and then on to 125 mph (201 km/h) before 10 seconds.

Part 4 focuses on the Zonda F's evil twin, the Zonda R. Spawned from a customer's request to have a "no-limits" Zonda bred for the track, the Zonda R was born.

Weighing only 1070 kg (2359 lbs), the Pagani Zonda R goes from 0 to 100 km/h in under 2.7 seconds and has a 351 km/h (218 mph) top speed, thanks to its 740 HP (552 kW / 740 bhp) 6.0-liter V12 engine.
