Pagani has released a video of the Zonda R completing the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 6 minutes and 47 seconds.

Driven by Marc Basseng, the Zonda R beat the previous lap record of 6 minutes 48 seconds set by Michael Vergers in the Radical SR8LM.

As we have previously reported, the 1,070 kilogram (2,358 pound) Zonda R features a Mercedes-sourced 6.0-liter V12 engine which has been tuned to produce 740 hp (552 kW / 750 PS) and 710 Nm (524 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 2.7 seconds, before topping out at 351 km/h (218 mph).

Priced from €1.5 million, only 15 Zonda Rs were produced.
