The Pagani Zonda R which was revealed at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show is the ultimate Zonda model, a final swan song before the new car arrives (currently codenamed the C9).

Only 16 Pagani Zonda R supercars will be produced, and by making the R for the track only Pagani have managed to skip out all the engineering hurdles and compromises needed to make it road legal. 15 of these cars will be offered for sale with the remaining unit staying with Pagani.

For power the Pagani Zonda R uses the same Mercedes-Benz V12 but with modifications it now achieves 739 horsepower and 524 ft-lbs of torque, and with a dry sump it can be fitted lower in the car therefore lowering the center of gravity.

Like the engine, the chassis of the Pagani Zonda R is modified, so much in fact that the R shares little with its roadgoing counterparts, the Pagani Zonda F and C12S. The wheelbase of the Zonda R is longer by 47mm, the overall length has grown by 394mm, the track is 50mm wider, there are new front and rear subframes and the gearbox is positioned transversely to allow the engine and gearbox to move forward helping balance weight distribution.

The Pagani Zonda R is also acting as a test bed for some of the new mechanicals which will go into the next Pagani model, namely a custom 6-speed sequential transmission and manual clutch - which could allow for the introduction of a paddle operated transmission in the new car.

Inside the Pagani Zonda R trim levels are well above what could be expected in a car bound for the track, gone is the distinctive glass roof in order to make way for the prominent central snorkel feeding the engine, the seats are bespoke race units and a roll cage has appeared. A digital readout is also provided in the Zonda R which shows the weight acting on all four wheels individually and will allow the driver to see downforce changes in a measurable manner.

The wheels of the Pagani Zonda R are made from forged magnesium and wrapped in slick racing tyres, attachment is done by a single central nut.

When the Pagani Zonda R reaches the track it could compete against the likes of the Ferrari FXX and Maserati MC12 Corsa.
