Pagani Zonda Revolucion duo on track shows why turbo can’t beat NA engine sound [video]

WCF friend and collaborator Marchettino has managed to capture on video a Pagani Zonda Revolucion duo while on track.

When Pagani introduced the Zonda Revolucion they said it would be the last ever model to wear the legendary "Zonda" moniker but that didn't turn out to be true as they returned with a 760 LM which will be followed by the Zonda X. Nevertheless, the Revolucion is probably the most insane of the bunch, packing a naturally-aspirated AMG V12 6.0-liter engine which sounds mental and could be easily confused with a Formula 1 engine from the naturally aspirated era.

The engine pumps out a whopping 800 bhp (596 kW) and 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) of torque without the assistance of a turbocharger. All that power is wrapped around in a supercar weighing just 2,359 lbs (1,070 kg), granting a power-to-weight ratio of 748 bhp / ton.

Pagani built only five units and two of them can be seen here while tackling the San Martino Del Lago circuit in northern Italy. Each owner paid 2.2M EUR (before taxes) to own the Zonda Revolucion which comes equipped with a 6-speed transversal and sequential gearbox made from magnesium and capable of changing gears in only 20ms. The driver gets to fiddle around with no less than twelve settings of the Bosch-made traction control while the DRS-equipped rear wing comes with two operating mods. An evolution of the Zonda R, the track-only Revolucion features F1-derived CCMR discs made by Brembo which are not only 15 percent lighter than before but they also last four times longer and offer more stopping power.
