Zonda production will end in September to make way for the new C9
22 January 2010

Pagani will launch its Zonda replacement, the C9, at the end of this year, according to the supercar firm’s Argentine founder.

Horacio Pagani told media in his native country that the C9 would be powered by a 690bhp, 737lb ft version of AMG’s 6.0-litre V12 engine.

Pagani also said the car was a completely new product in terms of design, weight, distribution, materials and dynamics and it will feature 3770 new parts.

The chassis will be carbon-titanium, with electronics coming from Bosch and specially developed tyres from Pirelli. The car will also be sold in the US as Pagani claims it meets the strict crash safety tests and Californian emissions laws.

Production of all one-off and special-edition Zondas will end in September to gear up for C9 production. Pagani aims to build 40 units per year at a cost of 900,000 euros (£785,000).

Another plaything for the shiek's sons?, i think i'm lucky because i've actually seen one!, North of the border too!, no these cars are getting to the stage of page three status, you look at them and go cor! and marvel how fast they can go but like the pizza delivery boy and the gianocologist your allowed to sniff but you can't touch, so it's just another dream unfulfilled.
