Since its inception, this breathtaking 2 seater with a centralized engine has developed into even sexier
versions as the years have gone by - and presently continues to do so.
1999 Pagani Zonda C12 - Only 5 of the first of the Pagani Zonda's were made. And with
a 6 litre Mercedes Benz AMG V12 engine producing 402 hp at 5200 rpm, it's tough catching this
185 mph astounder that manages 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
1999 Pagani Zonda C12 S - With a 7 litre engine and 10 kg less weight, this variation
of the C12 manages 60 mph in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 215-220 mph. The C12-S boasts
improved aerodynamical features. Just 15 were produced.

2005 Pagani Zonda C12 F - Topping the charts as the most extensively reengineered of the Pagani
since the car's introduction, the C12 F shares a lot with its predecessors such as the infamous 7.3 litre
V12 engine. Greater power and speed plus new and enhanced features have ensured that the fastest track
time on Top Gear of 1:18.4 belongs to Zonda F. It is also the first car that Pagani decided to produce
in increased quantities - built in a factory with the capability of producing 250 cars per annum.
Zonda Pagani Roadster F - Debuting at the 2006 Geneva car show, the Roadster F has similarities
to the coupe, yet it includes a carbon fibre roof which can be removed plus canvas side curtains - all in
only 1230 kg of car. Production is currently estimated at 25 units.
Speechless? That's ok. There's nothing left to say. If you have to ask, you don't understand.
