Pagani has released pictures of its new road-going track car – the Zonda Cinque. It’s a limited edition (we’re talking only five examples) with a 669bhp and weight-saving technology all round. Racy doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Quite a bit. Weighing only 1210kg (20kg lighter than the F), Pagani says the Cinque will get to 62mph in 3.4 seconds and to 120 in 9.6. Thank the new six-speed Cima sequential gearbox for the super-fast acceleration figures. It's the first time a road-going Zonda has been fitted with a sequential 'box and gear changes are via paddles or the gear stick.

The Zonda continues to use the AMG-developed engine, which the company claims will take this monster (as Pagani itself describes the Cinque) to over 219 mph. Pagani won't say what configuration the engine is, but expect a Merc V12.

Being a pared-down supercar there’s not much in the way of technical marvel here, but being an extra special supercar, the devil’s in the details.

Titanium and magnesium suspension and springs are specially made by Ohlins and have four different settings.

The multi-piece wheels are made from titanium and the tyres are of a Cinque-specific compound from Pirelli. And to shave off those extra few ounces, the wheels’ bolts and nuts are titanium too. The exhaust system is also made from titanium, and ceramic coated.
