The hardcore Pagani Zonda Revolucion has reportedly managed to record an impressive 6:30-minute time at the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
It was 2010 when the Pagani Zonda R registered its name among the fastest cars on the German track with 6 minutes and 47 seconds. Now it seems the last Zonda ever – the Revolucion – is even faster and has lapped the ‘Ring in shocking 6:30 minutes. While the information has not yet been confirmed by the manufacturer, millionaire car collector Kris Singh posted a photo of his Zonda Revolucion, announcing it is the “new king of the Nurburgring.” The information was also posted on LoveCars and Shmee150 Facebook pages.
Given the fact the Zonda Revolucion is limited to only five units and is designed as a track car using race tires, we can’t say the time is an official track record for a production car around the Nurburgring. If that is the case, we'll expect an official statement from Pagani.
Wearing a hefty price tag of €2.2M , the model is powered by a naturally aspirated AMG V12 6.0-liter engine delivering 800 bhp (596 kW) and 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) of torque. Built around a carbon-titanium monocoque, the hypercar weighs only 1,070 kg (2,359 lbs), meaning the power-to-weight-ratio stands at 748 bhp / ton.
The Zonda Revolucion also benefits from a two-mode DRS, Brembo brakes with F1 tech-derived carbon-ceramic discs, and retuned ABS. There's also a full aerodynamic body kit that includes a massive fixed rear wing, deflectors on the hood, and a vertical stabilizer on the rear hood.
