Default C9 spy shots! EDIT: Unveiled as the Pagani Huayra!! Pics on Pg 3

This is the replacement for the legendary Zonda. The Zonda is over ten years-old now. The new C9 will be lighter, faster and sport better dynamics. Powering the new hypercar is a special, developed just for Pagani version of AMG's lovable 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12. In C9 trim this motor should belt out 700 horsepower. Plus, it halfway looks like Michael Keaton's Batmobile.

700 horses,now thats worthwhile!Not too fond of the design,or maybe its just the looks of this test vehicle.
Is the passenger side door not shut all the way?

The Zonda was weirdly styled in a good way,but this looks a bit too awkward,like some mythical deep sea monster or something..!

There will be Zonda style quad pipes on this one too,as evident from the curves and the blank space at the rear.But this proto does with only two pipes,subtly placed under that huge rear diffuser.

I think the styling is too tame for a Zonda; this one has more mainstream look ( in the second pic). The rear is quite wacky though, there surely is a gaping hole reserved for big quad exhausts.

love the rear, cannot make out much of the front of the car.

i m pretty sure, knowing what the pagani designers are capable of, this is going to be one hell of a looker.

The lines of the car look stunning but i feel the lights are for test purpose only and they might change in the production.

Thid one looks bit better than the older model. But looking good is not what Zondas are known for, it is rather hypercar performance. Any information on the perfomance which it is destined for???

Test driver crashes the Pagani C9 prototype on the Autobahns! It is believed that the driver lost control of the vehicle at high speeds while on Autobahn B14 in Stuttgart, Germany.

Even the " government approved high speed testing vehicle sticker" was not spared in the crash!
