The exotic supercar manufacturer has decided to use social media to tease the possible new lap record on the Nurburgring – but hasn’t yet offered any sort of details.
Pagani recently hinted it is already or in the course of improving the lap record around the Nürburgring – via a Facebook post they brought memories of its road-going Zonda F that delivered its own record on the ‘Ring by posting a time of 7:27.82 on September 25, 2007 while being driven by Marc Basseng. The post ends with the “to be continued” tagline… so we’re getting a strong hint from the Italian supercar manufacturer that it’s ready to reclaim the title.
The model’s identity hasn’t been revealed by we suspect it’s a road-legal car since Pagani was keen on telling us in the FB post he Zonda F was a “road-going” vehicle. Most likely the company’s latest and greatest model – the Huayra BC – is the selected vehicle, with the record to beat being of 6 minutes and 57 seconds set on September 4, 2013, by the 918 Spyder driven by Porsche factory race driver Marc Lieb. There’s also a better one – 6 minutes and 48 seconds established by Michael Vergers on August 19, 2009 in a Radical SR8 LM, but the model isn’t road legal all over the world so nobody is taking it into consideration when talking about the fastest road-legal car on the Nordschleife.
