Lego Pagani Zonda Cinque

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.

Pagani Zonda Cinque – Picture Special

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. You can check out all the beautiful photos of the Zonda Cinque at Noah’s  photostream – click the link above to make the jump.
