It was the first car produced by Horacio Pagani’s car company, Pagani Automobili S.p.A.It is based in San Cesario sul Panaro, near Modena, in Italy. Yes it’s another supercar company near Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati.

The Zonda has been produced in tiny quantities and with plenty of special editions which means that it has a long story to tell.

“The last ever Zonda” has become a bit of a joke. It seems that rich car owners keep going to Mr Pagani and offering him large amounts of money to produce another unique Zonda.

The current last Zonda ever is the Zonda Revolucion.
