The Pagani Zonda 'Revolucion' – seen here at the Geneva motor show – is the final version of the Zonda, which was originally launched back in 1999.

Originally revealed at 'Vanishing Point', the international Pagani gathering, it is stated to represent the ultimate form of the Zonda.

With a central monocoque formed from a blend of carbon and titanium, the Zonda Revolucion tips the scales at 1070kg; that's equal to the weight of 2007's Zonda R.

Power comes from the brand's familiar naturally aspirated AMG Mercedes V12, an evolution of the unit found in the aforementioned Zonda R. The 6.0-litre engine develops 789bhp and 538lb ft – increases of 50bhp and 14lb ft over its predecessor.

A six-speed sequential transmission made from lightweight magnesium drives the rear wheels and allows for gear changes in as little as 20ms. No performance figures have been announced, but expect a minor improvement on the R's 0-62mph time of 2.7sec and a top speed in excess of 217mph.

Pagani has also further evolved the car's traction system, allowing for twelve different settings. This, in conjunction with a revised ABS system, allows the driver to configure the car to suit their driving style.

Aerodynamic changes include new front deflectors on the bonnet, a vertical stabiliser on the rear and a drag reduction system (DRS) on the rear wing. The DRS can be activated manually, via a button on the steering wheel, or left to its own devices in an automatic mode.

Furthermore, the car's Brembo brakes now utilise a different type of carbon ceramic disc. The upgraded rotors are claimed to have a lifespan that's four times longer than the previous items, as well as offering improved durability, reduced fade, a weight saving of 15 per cent and more stopping power.

Horacio Pagani, owner and chief designer of Pagani Automobili, said, "We knew it would be very difficult to design and build a car that was even more extreme. But thanks to the creativity of our designers, engineers, and the whole Pagani family, we created a beautiful object and the fastest Pagani vehicle ever."

The Pagani Zonda Revolucion is on sale now for €2.2m, plus taxes, meaning a UK price tag of around £2.3m.

It is a revolution when you

It is a revolution when you remember the original Zonda only had 389BHP, and this has over double that! This is the spiritual successor to the CLK-GTR. Its just a race car for the road. Amazing.

I'd have a Zonda F though... that exhaust note....
