Fifth Gear host takes Pagani Zonda R to its limits. The Zonda R recently posted a record-setting lap time of 6 minutes 47.5 seconds for the 20,832 km Nordschleife track at the Nurburgring.

Yes, this video is from that other British motoring program. The one that's been on longer than Top Gear and features hokier, although, less toxic hosts.

Fifth Gear's Tiff Needell takes the Pagani Zonda R super track car for a test drive in this video. It is pure speed.

Say what you will about Needell's excessive enthusiasm as a host but on the track it confirms that this man was once a professional race driver. He takes the Zonda R to its limits while providing us with a sound commentary.

The Zonda R recently posted a record-setting lap time of 6 minutes 47.5 seconds for the 20.8 km Nordschleife track at the Nurburgring.

It is in a class of its own - a true hypercar.
