Another Pagani One-Off: The Zonda 750

Another Pagani One-Off: The Zonda 750

Pagani is still in the process of testing and developing its next-generation, Zonda-replacing supercar: the C9. While that car continues to get snapped by stealthy photographers at tracks and roadways around the world, Pagani whiles away the days before its release, making the Zonda even more exclusive for wealthy customers. The blue Zonda HH was revealed back in August, and now word of the next one-off Zonda has made its way out. The Zonda 750 will be a purple model based on the Zonda Cinque hard-top.

There isn't a whole lot of information about the Zonda 750, but a half-hearted educated guess tells us that it will pack 750 horsepower. That means the Mercedes Benz  AMG 7.3-liter V12 used in the Cinque will be tuned up from its stock 678-hp and 575 lb-ft. That engine will likely be paired to the Cinque's paddle-controlled sequential six-speed transmission, but the gearbox could change, based upon the customer's preferences.

Debuted in 2008, the Zonda Cinque was Pagani's street-legal version of its Zonda R race car. The Cinque used a carbon-titanium chassis, as well as other titanium, carbon and magnesium components, to keep weight down to 2,670 lbs. That plus the big V12 engine powered the Cinque to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds and all the way up to 217 mph.

Only five of the original $1.5 million Cinque were manufactured, but for those wishing for a truly bespoke experience, Pagani also offers multi-million dollar one-offs like the Zonda HH and Zonda 750. The Zonda HH was comissioned by an American customer and used the standard Cinque engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission. The customer worked closely with Pagani to ensure that weight was cut wherever possible. The HH came in Monterey Blue. While Pagani didn't name drop, the customer commissioned the car with no intention of letting it collect dust in a garage.

Ordinarily, I'm not a big fan of purple cars, but the purple used on the Zonda looks damn good. The purple-trimmed wheels might be pushing it a tad far, though. Other than that, details are scarce at this point, but we'll undoubtedly be seeing the rest when Pagani's good and ready.

- In case you think the purple coloration denotes a slightly less masculine Zonda, fear not. Allow us to remind what the Zonda 750 is underneath the Shafttastic paint scheme . ..
