Pagani’s Zonda is now twenty years old (it seems unbelievable typing that…), and the brand is the exception to the ‘New Supercar Start-Up Rule’ (i.e. they’re all complete crap and most will fold before a single car has even been built).
Pagani didn’t create a four-million horsepower W28 engine, instead borrowing a tried and tested unit from AMG and clothing it in one of the most remarkable bodies ever created for a road car.
Ten years after the first cars were built Pagani launched the ‘Cinque’, a run consisting of just five coupes and five roadsters, each costing $2million before taxes.
The spectacular model of a spectacular car comes from TLCB Master MOCer and vehicle-building legend Firas Abu-Jaber, who has recreated the Zonda Cinque beautifully in Model Team form, complete with the coolest folding roof we’ve even seen on a Lego creation.
Zonda production finally ended last year totalling 140 units, when Pagani replaced it with the even more startling Huayra. We probably prefer the Zonda though, and to see more of Firas’ incredible creation (including the amazing roof) head over to the Pagani’s Flickr album by clicking here.
