zonda R,pagani

Just like the top speed war between Bugatti and Shelby Supercars, there is the fastest lap around the Green Hell war. And honestly, this latter makes more sense to me. Lately Ferrari took its track focused 599XX to the Ring to make an incredible 6 min 58 seconds lap time. But just when we started thinking that time was set to last for a while, Pagani's Zonda R destroyed it by a full 11 seconds and now Pagani Automobili has finally released the full on board lap footage of the Zonda R performing its astonishing 6 minutes 47 seconds run at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

As a reminder, the Zonda R is a 1,070 Kg (2,400 pounds) non road legal track car powered by an AMG sourced 6.0 L V12 tuned to produce 740 Hp. If you want to follow the building process of this fantastic track machine, and of course you do, i suggest you to take a visit to the Pagani factory in Modena thanks to this three parts article written by the Speed Hunters here, here and here.
