The Pagani Zonda C12 supercar expresses the perfect blend between art and technology.

Born from the passion of a little boy, the Zonda C12 is the first Pagani supercar to be constructed at the atelier of San Cesario sul Panaro. The bodywork, inspired to the Silver arrows of the Mercedes C group, encloses the essence of an unmistakable wind, where art and science beautifully combine to create a unique symphony, fascinating and bewildering at the same time.

Start the engine and the purring sound rises to a roaring crescendo as blazing bright blue flames come spurting out from the 4 – stroke exhaust system.

Despite the peculiar concept behind its design, the supercar features a fibre carbon monocoque and a Mercedes-Benz AMG engine that is capable of unleashing as much as 394 hp with a maximum torque of 570 Nm.

The choice of mounting the V12 Mercedes engine in a central position has enabled the Zonda C12 to attain high performance levels of torque and power, while achieving overall weight reduction.

Furthermore, thanks to the utilization of composite materials for the chassis and the bodywork, the car structure is highly resistant and light at the same time, ensuring driver comfort as well.

The Zonda C12 is conceived, designed and developed with the objective of keeping things simple in terms of lightness, aerodynamics and versatility. The optimized suspension featuring innovative elastokinematic mounts, optimal weight distribution and extremely low barycentre reflect this philosophy.

Deceptively small from the outside and comfortable on the inside, the interior details inspire to past, present and future cultures.

With a price tag of approximately Rs 48165000, Zonda C12 symbolises the dreams and aspirations of true supercar aficionados.
