About two years ago I got a brief but unforgettable half hour behind the wheel of a Pagani Zonda. The experience was exhilarating as all of my exotic car experiences have been, but the Zonda was something different. The carbon fiber and expensive metal alloys all played directly into my pro-cycling equipment fetishes and the cars handling felt as at home as leaning my bike into a tight curve, only the Zonda did it at five times the speed.
There really isn’t much else to say about the Pagani Zonda R. It’s a race inspired re imagination of the Pagani Zonda which itself is already track focused. No matter how you film the Pagani Zonda it’s going to look amazing, when you film it with blockbuster quality theatrics the car comes out looking like pure sex on wheels – thus the Pagani Zonda commercial.
