Banana-Yellow Pagani Zonda RAK Built For German Dealership

The Pagani Zonda may be in the process of being replaced by a newer Pagani hypercar, but it's not moving out of the spotlight quietly. It seems that we've seen more flamboyantly painted Zondas in the past couple of months than ever before. Both the blue HH and the purple 750 were private commissions, and now we have yet another privately commissioned Zonda that's even louder than those two: the Zonda RAK.

Unlike the other Pagani special editions we've seen lately, the RAK was reportedly ordered by a German dealership named Auto Salon Singen. The dealership, which specializes in high-end cars, including Ferraris, Porsches, and Bugattis, reportedly plans to sell the car. Details on the numbers indicate the dealership will sell the car for €1.85 million (app. $2.5 million).

Like the HH and 750 the car's character is in its paint. The Zonda RAK gets a bright yellow exterior paint that extends to the brake calipers and interior stitching. Like the HH and 750, the Zonda RAK is based on the Zonda Cinque. It gets the 7.2-liter Mercedes AMG V12 engine worth around 700 horses. There's no indication of whether the car will use the sequential six-speed transmission or a different option.

When it comes to sports cars, yellow can be either really hot or really nasty, in my opinion. On the Zonda, I'd say it looks pretty hot—especially with the contrasting hood and sides.

Is it me or does this seem like an odd move? I'm sure someone will buy it, but if I was spending $2.5 million on a Pagani Zonda one-off, I figure I'd rather just have the experience of designing it myself. And without a middle man, that would not only be the more personal way to go, but also the cheaper. Perhaps building your own multi-million dollar supercar has become the type of work that rich folks delegate to others.
