18 February 2010

These are the latest spy pictures of the Pagani C9, the replacement for the much lauded Zonda.

The car is currently being tested in South Africa, and will go on sale later this year.

Horacio Pagani recently said 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).
