The Pagani Zonda F Clubsport was first revealed in 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show. The Coupe and the Roadster were very similar, the F Clubsport adding an extra dimension by having a removable carbon fiber and canvas room meaning that driver and passenger could experience the Clubsports titanium exhausts at full volume, an experience I’m sure would cause the hairs on the back of the neck to stand up as the 7.3 litre AMG built V12 screams its way to 7,000rpm. Pagani claimed the Roadster weighed just 35kg more than the coupe, 1,230kg, and when combined with the 650bhp the predominantly carbon built Zonda would launch toward the horizon and reach 60mph in 3.6 seconds and if the driver wills to a top speed of 215mph. The car impressed Top Gear enough for them to put in head to head with the mighty Bugatti Veyron and around the track the lighter Zonda was quicker than the 1001bhp Veyron, proving power is not everything!
This example of the Zonda F, a car that Pagani built as a homage to the legendary F1 champion Juan Manuel Fangio, looks sublime in its naked carbon body. This dark carbon weave is offset by a thin stripe along to body and canvas roof being colored a deep red adding to the menacing look of this stunning car.
Loïc Maschi was lucky enough to find one of the 25 Clubsports in a deserted Paris car park and produced this eery, almost ghostly image for LM-Photomotive.
