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.

"... You will love it. But you have to wait for it." that's the claim of Dr. Kay Segler when mentionning the now officially named BMW 1 series Coupe. And i couldn't be more excited about this upcoming M car. Stay tuned!

Bugatti Veyron SuperSport: a 434 km/h (270 mph) capable machine


Now have a seat, this is gonna be a little scary. The long rumored even more powerful version of the Bugatti Veyron is here! What's more powerful than 1,001 Hp? you'd ask. Bugatti answers: 1,200 Hp. Thanks to the further use of exotic materials, the car now weights 50 Kilograms less, which doesn't sound like a lot compared to nearly two ton weight of the car. However the W16 powered beast is now capable of reaching 434 Km/h (270 mph)!

Other mind buggling performance figures include a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of 2.5 seconds and a 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph)sprint in less than 15 seconds.

Some of the most noticeable exterior modifications are the black and orange paint job, modificated front bumper and side skirts and a hugely modificated rear end with of course the active rear wing. While that rear end doesn't look really convincing, it surely is the way it is for aerodynamic reasons. With only 30 units to be produced, the SuperSport is set to end the production run of the Bugatti Veyron before a potential replacement comes in.
