Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster
Pagani is a reasonably new supercar maker, they only arrived to the scene in 1999 with the Zonda and unlike a lot of other new supercars, they lasted.
The Zonda Cinque was made by Pagani after repeated request of the Hong Kong–based Pagani dealer, SPS Automotive Performance (in fact, initially it had to be called Zonda SPS), only five will be built at the cost of £1 million. The Zonda Cinque is a combination of the Zonda F and Zonda R to create a road-going track-day car.
The 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, a 2-door convertible production car, features a Mercedes-Benz AMG mid-engine (with rear-wheel drive) that boasts of a horsepower of 678 bhp and torque of 780 Nm. With it powerful engine, it can reach 60 mph within 3.3 seconds. The Pagani engineers have designed the car with ECU, ABS, and traction control by Bosch Engineering. The roadster has a 6-speed sequential transmission, a ceramic-coated Inconel/titanium exhaust system, magnesium and titanium suspensions, and APP monolithic wheels fashioned from aluminum and magnesium. The 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster’s interior features Pagani leather/carbon-fiber racing seats.
Only five Cinque Roadsters were built, and the Zonda featured here is the last one done, 5/5.
Seeing a Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster on the streets is extremely rare, but the one I saw had to fight some tough competition parked next to a Koenigsegg Agera R and a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. My choice of these cars would be the Zonda Cinque Roadster as honestly, the others look a tad boring in comparison…
