1 Million Euro's + Tax... isnt it too much!
There's no history or pedigree... paying this amount for a wanabe supercar maker with borrowed technology is ridiculous in my opinion.
Why not a Veyron for a few more... that will cream this one in starightline and corners alike and looks a million times better.

I guess it costs them like half a million bucks every year just to keep it in running condition.

Anyway nice work by Pagani though. Wonder what else they have left for the Zonda before they finally retire it.

Its true that most of the supercar owners buy the cars to basically let everyone know that 'I have arrived' or 'Look at me, I'm rich!'..but there are a few out there who buy them for genuine performance reasons..

Servicing these cars again costs as much as a brand new small car...
But unusually in the case of the Zondas, a full service costs approx 1500 (Rs 120,000)...Now that is peanuts in case of a Zonda..
The recommended service intervals for engine, gearbox and diff oil changes is 10,000km.
The spark plugs are only needed every 60,000km, something which is unheard of in the supercar territory.
But the fuel tank needs changing every ten years.

Oh my gawd, you are clueless about Pagani(sorry to say, i know its your opinion, but its like someone saying McLaren F1 is a kit car)..I would buy a Zonda F, a Zonda F Roadster, a Zonda Cinque before i consider a Veyron...and then also i will a long list of other cars before the veyron, its nothing but a super fast bug..

Zonda's are far above any bugs out there...and its just not my opinion, its most people's opinion in the hypercar world

Default Pagani Zonda Cinque coming to Geneva

Source:Car News and reviews, videos, wallpapers, pictures, free games and more. - Top Speed

We’ve been getting excited about the Pagani Zonda R coming to Geneva, but as it turns out the track-only car will have to share Pagani’s stage. The Zonda Cinque will also peek its head at the motor show this week.
The Zonda Cinque is basically a Zonda R with the production numbers halved (five total expected) and is road legal. Just like the Zonda R, the Zonda Cinque will share little parts with the similar-looking . Some of the main elements that distinguish the Cinque from the F will be the improved aerodynamics in front and the intake scoop on the roof.
More power is also expected for this latest road-going Zonda. 678 hp from a V12 engine was first reported back in June, but since the Zonda R makes 750 hp, we may be able to expect more from the Cinque. We’ll get all our answers later this week in Geneva.

well its your opinion.i feel that zonda and koenigsegg are far better supercars than veyron as veyron is a totally loaded stuff.i hope i made my point clear.the same difference as in a busa and mv augusta.

Yup! It's RHD! If I remember correctly, the Zonda Cinque that Hammond drove in his DVD 'Top Gear Uncovered', was RHD as well! And I guess if you have the money, you can get any shade!

Wow ZOnda has been one of my favorite emerging brands and everytime they come out with a car they never disappoint me. Love this zonda also but my favourite zonda is the Mad Zonda R , thats more the fxx type and truly the best sounding car.
By the way all zonda's sound amazing.cheers.
