Supercar upstarts Pagani are a most unusual company. In 1992 founder Horacio Pagani, an Argentinian working for Lamborghini in Italy, decided to use his carbon fibre and composite engineering expertise to develop a car of his own.
Pagani partnered with Daimler who supplied their mighty AMG V12 engine, and unlike almost every other recent supercar entrepreneur, he busied himself for almost a decade before his car was ready, without releasing a single half-baked design accompanied by ludicrous performance figures.
Pagani’s spectacular creation launched at Geneva in 1999, and it worked too, instantly propelling the company into the genuine hypercar club. The Zonda become increasingly powerful over the next decade, and this is one of the very last variants, called the Cinque and released in 2009 with a production run of just five.
This brilliant Model Team version of one of the world’s rarest and most expensive hypercars is the work of previous bloggee Noah_L (formally Lego Builders), and it’s one of the most spectacular supercar builds we’ve seen in a very long time. With opening doors, hood and clamshell engine cover the internals are as detailed as the exterior, and we highly recommend taking a look at the full album.
