The new PAGANI Zonda F presented at the Geneva 2006 Motor Show
The fabulous new Zonda F Roadster has been officially presented on February 28th, at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. This jewel completes the current Pagani range (which includes the Zonda F berlinette and the S Roadster.
Engine, aerodynamics, dynamic behaviour, wheels, and other elements of the "Zonda F" are obviously identical on the Roadster version. But its price is higher and it offers the even more exclusive "open top" driving eperience.
The new Zonda F range is based on a new, more powerful version (650 HP) of the fabulous V12 AMG-Mercedes. Pagani cars, due to clients demands, are already often built with better specifications than indicated on the catalogue. Striving for figures for the sake of figures has never been Pagani's philosophy.
However, the new Pagani is combining specifications that have never been reached before. In addition to this substantial power increase the extra-terrestrial torque of the Zonda engine has also been upgraded to 780 Nm... - (most of which available from 2500 t/mn). Better aerodynamics enable not only a higher top-speed but more down-force, faster accelerations, and an increased stability (already one of the forte of the Zonda).
The breaking system can include carbon-ceramic brakes following each client's choice. This braking technology responds to demands from drivers who need a significant extension of the endurance and high-temperature capabilities for a very extreme use (on race tracks for exmaple).
An inboard automated system constantly monitors the health of the Zonda F and gets in contact with the Pagani Factory of with the closest Assistance center in order to analyse the root cause of any possible issue, and help fix it in the shortest time frame.
The measured performances of the F range, already at the very top on the previous Zonda thanks to its unique balance between lightness, power, and dynamic capabilities, are upgraded to levels never reached before. Even though Horacio Pagani is well-known for his modesty, and only annnounces "over 215 mph (345 km/h)", his new creature displays a unique set of performances - actually the very best in the world and the new reference.
Pagani Automobili is recognised worldwide as the manufacturer of reference, combining leading-edge performance with the most expert and dedicated high-tech craftsmanship. As all other Paganis since the birth of the Firm, the Zonda F is available on special commission, and built upon every client's wishes.
