We live in 2017 and production of the Pagani Zonda has concluded some years ago, but of course the exotic Italian automaker keeps a loyal customer base – and sometimes they come back for more, even though they don’t want to trade in their Zonda.
We’re kind of used to new versions of the Zonda, actually – a model that originally premiered way back in 1999 – we recently saw the unique Fantasma Evo based on a 2005 right-hand-drive Zonda F, so we’re actually in the mood for another bespoke Zonda. And so it happens one appears out of the bloom – actually from the social media account of Pagani itself. The grainy promo video released by Pagani on Instagram shows this new bespoke version – one of one, naturally – wearing a gorgeous two-tone paint with mostly white body and blue accents that pay tribute to the lovely Côte d’Azur / French Riviera from where it also sourced the nickname.
According to reports, it’s also a Zonda F and originally it was yellow when it left the Modena, Italy plant – according to yet another report, the car was even spotted a few months ago being shot for a pictorial on the Jabal Jais mountain road situated on the border between Oman and United Arab Emirates. Details about the modifications are not yet available, but as far as we can tell it sure looks like the Zonda went to the gym for a carbon fiber training regimen. The regular Zonda F has a naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 engine packing 602 horsepower (443 kilowatts) at 6,150 rpm and a peak torque of 760 Newton-meters (560 pound-feet) from 4,000 rpm.
