Pagani Zonda Tricolore: One-off Zonda at GenevaSat, 27 Feb 2010
The Pagani Zonda Tricolore - Geneva bound (click for bigger image)
We already know that Pagani are taking the Zonda Cinque Roadster #4 to shove on their stand at the Geneva Motor Show, and you can add to that what could be considered an even rarer version of the Zonda – the Pagani Zonda Tricolore.
This particulay Zonda has been created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Italian equivalent of the Red Arrows – the ‘Frecce Tricolori – and ordered up by a Pagani distributor, which almost certainly means it’s already sold – for €1.3 million.
Based on the Cinque, the Zonda Tricolore gets a fancy paint job which includes stripes which mimic the colours of the Frecce Tricori. The Cinque’s trademark airscoop has gone to be replaced by a small fin on the engine cover. We’re not exactly sure what – if anything – the fin does, but we’ll be having a good look at Geneva. The Zonda Tricolore also gets a set of LEDs at the front in the shape of a plane’s tail fin.
All one-off Zondas are interesting, and as this will be one of the last it will perhaps get more attention. But it won’t be the last. Horacio Pagani has said that despite the main Zonda production now ending in preparation for the Pagani C9 later this year, Pagani will continue to make one-off Zonda’s if the demand is there.
But this could be the last major Motor Show with a Zonda or two headlining. We’re expecting to see the Pagani C9 / Pagani Fangio at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. We’ll then find out what it’s called (if not before). We’ve gone for Pagani Fangio, but if you have any better ideas let us know in the comments.
