Pagani is working on a new ‘Zonda’. The C9 is running through the development stages as we speak and ahead of its debut in Geneva. A new set of spyshots gives us all a better view on the brand new hypercar.
According to British car magazine Autocar, the new model is set to mark a radical shift in Pagani’s engine configuration, transmission set-up, and even its manufacturing process. The engine is 6.0 liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, producing around 700bhp and more than 730lb-ft of torque. Delivering more power the engine still complies to the Euro 5 regulation. The CO2 figure will be 50% lower than its competitors. The gear changes will be performed by a seven-speed sequential set-up, sourced from British transmission specialist X-trac.
On the subject of design it will have gull-wing doors, special air brakes at the back and be made from the ultra-expensive, ultra-lightweight carbon-titanium material. A kerb weight at around 1230kg is rumoured.
Surprisely, Pagani’s original model will continue to be produced, in tiny numbers and on demand, alongside the C9.
