With Ferrari's FXX firmly in their sights, Pagani' introduced their ballistic track-only hypercar the Zonda R in 2007, with production starting two years later.

The Zonda F forms the basis of the Zonda R, but Pagani claim that the R carries over just 10% of parts from its illustrious road car sibling. Power is provided by a mighty AMG V12 engine, derived from the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR race car. An output of 740 bhp, coupled with a dry weight of just 1070 Kg, results in a Veyron worrying 0-100 kmh of just 2.7 sec. However, it is on the track that the Veyron would be left eating the Pagani's dust. A lap of the Nurburgring takes just 6:47 in the Zonda R (a record for a production based car). A lateral acceleration figure of 1.6g may have something to do with this.

A small production run of 15 examples were built between 2009-2011, at a substantial 1.5 million Euro asking price, before Pagani's attention turned to the Zonda's replacement - the gorgeous Huayra.
