Evo Editorial Director Harry Metcalfe owns a regular Zonda. So maybe that’s what he was able to score an invite to the Pagani factory and talk a South American zillionaire into letting him flog his Zonda 760 RS–before he’s even seen it. Personally, I don’t care what Metcalfe did to get this footage. Because he got it. And it rules.
The attention to detail on the Zonda R is mind-blowing, and in this video Metcalfe does a great job of pointing out minutia like how the carbon fiber weave lines up perfectly across the gaps of the doors, which is so far beyond tricky that you begin to think $2.6 million isn’t a completely ludicrous sum to pay for a car. Then he takes the car out and the road, and you hear the grinding wail and ferocious backfires of its AMG V12. And there’s not really much to talk about after that. Enjoy.
