Unfortunate news from Japan this evening. We have seen pictures which suggest that the unique Pagani Zonda Zozo was involved in an accident earlier today which caused damage to the front clam shell. It looks as though there were no injuries or fatalities although we are unable to verify this.
The Pagani Zonda Zozo was commissioned midway through last year by 41-year old Yusaku Maezawa, owner of the Japanese online retailer Zozotown. Unfortunately, we have no further information to share with you about the crash, other than it appears to have happened in Tokyo, Japan. The photo reveals that the whole front clam shell has come apart. Fortunately, it does not look as though the damage extends much further.
The Pagani Zonda Zozo was quite unique in that it featured partially covered rear wheel arches. It is rumoured to have the 760 updates which have been applied to the numerous Zonda special editions. An extra set of red taillights and a fetching purple exterior colour also contribute to the appeal of the Zozo.
Pagani have a history of rebuilding previously damaged cars. Both the Absolute and Fantasma were both rebuilds from former crashes. We expect that it will be rebuilt as soon as Pagani are able to do so. We will bring you more information as soon as it is available.
Update: We heard a rumour that the accident also involved a Maybach 62S…
I was there. The Pagani was trying to weave in and out of traffic right before a traffic light and lost control slamming into the back of the Maybach and lifting into the air to come crashing back down and somehow (my view became obscured) flip around to face the direction it ended up in. I and a few of my friends have multiple pictures and one video of the wreckage. A lot of people reported hearing two crashes, I assume the second is when the car landed back on the ground.
