Watch a 1-of-1 Pagani Zonda Unleash 760 HP on Track
However you cut it, the Pagani Zonda is a truly unique player in the world of supercars. Company founder Horacio Pagani crafted the first V12-powered Zonda supercar in 1999, and 16 years later, special editions are still trickling out of the company’s Italian headquarters…provided you have a million dollars to spend. This stunning roadster is one of those latter creations—a rare Pagani Zonda 760LM—a bespoke car that shares its “760” family line with the special Zonda 760LH, owned by reigning Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton. While most multi-million dollar 1-of-1 supercars are kept scuttled away in clandestine garages, the owner of this Pagani Zonda isn’t afraid to stretch its legs on track. According to videographer Marchettino, the owner reserved the entire Autodromo di Modena track for the occasion. Give a listen to the epic Mercedes V12 soundtrack that results, below.

When exercising an exceedingly rare supercar, it’s always nice to bring a camera crew to document the occasion, and in this case the Zonda owner did. Hard launches and engine revs were filmed from the pits, while a minivan (and subsequently a Lamborghini Gallardo) was sourced as a camera tracking vehicle for action shots. After a spot of rain and the roadster’s lid going on, the Zonda was quick to return to the track.
Under its rear flanks lies a 7.3-liter Mercedes-AMG V12 engine, which as the car’s name suggests, boasts a rip-roaring 760 horsepower. The “LM” part? That’s claimed to signify the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans, and this car features unique headlights evocative of those Le Mans prototype race cars. Impressively, the 760LM roadster puts its power to the ground through a manual gearbox. No shift-assist on this drop-top exotic.
