Street Legal Pagani Zonda R

Street Legal Pagani Zonda R

It should be noted that the conversion was carried out for the United Kingdom, where it is easier to make a wagon legal for road use than for the United States, where type-approval rules for individual vehicles apply. The owner of TopCar Design, a Russian tuning company, acquired the fourth Pagani Zonda Revolucion and sent it to Lanzante for modification. Although no details about the conversion have been released, it is likely that the car will ride more comfortably on the road, starting with the suspension. In order to obtain roadside approval, a license plate holder and turn signals must be added. The Pagani Zonda R[1] is a racing car designed and manufactured by the Italian sports car manufacturer Pagani. It made its debut at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show with the 6.0-liter GT 112 engine, which comes from the racing version of the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR. [2] Competition for the Zonda R is based on racing cars such as the Ferrari FXX and Maserati MC12 Corsa, rather than the original road competitors of the Zonda, as it is not road-legal. The 2013 Pagina Zonda Revolucion in question is apparently the #4 out of 5 car, after the completion of this reconstruction, TopCar Design intends to present the car throughout Europe, with the value of a pure track Zonda Revolucion around the €6,000,000 mark, once it becomes the only legal version for the road, Its value will be considerably higher. The Zonda Revolucion and P1 GTR are far from the only hypercars originally designed for the circuit before being converted into road-legal cars. Another relevant example that comes to mind is the Aston Martin Vulcan, which was modified by the British RML Group to obtain a license plate.

Just over a year ago, Brabham unveiled a conversion kit for the BT62 to make it road-friendly. If we go back in time, Porsche built a unique 911 GT1 Evo for the road in the late 1990s (not to be confused with the road version 911 GT1). There seems to be a loophole for this, bring your pure track hypercar to the UK car company Lanzante Limited which offers a legal road conversion for these cars so you can register it in the UK and get a UK number plate, and they have already done so, on a McLaren F1 GTR, a McLaren P1 GTR and even a McLaren Senna GTR. and now that TopCar Design has apparently asked them to rebuild one of the five Pagani Zonda Revolucion, a list of necessary changes will be released later. But back to the Revolucion. The car was an evolution of the Zonda R Track Special (got it? R-evolution) started in 2009 and only five have been built. Now, one of those five cars, chassis number four to be exact, has been legal on the road thanks to Lanzante. The British motorsport and engineering company has already made such conversions for racing cars, the most famous being the McLaren P1 GTR. The folks at GT Spirit learned that the legal Zonda Revolucion on the street belongs to the Russian tuning company TopCar, which has or had a number of Paganis in its possession. It is then possible that the Revolucion will soon be offered for sale. One of only five Pagani Zonda Revolucion models ever produced, it would soon be converted into a street car by none other than Lanzante.

It is reported that the owner of tuning company TopCar Design recently acquired the #4 Zonda Revolucion and quickly sent it to Lanzante for modification. The British company is perhaps best known for turning the McLaren P1 GTR into a legal weapon for the road just for the race track and is currently working to figure out what it needs to do to make Pagani Street Limited legal. The Zonda Revolucion is powered by the same 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine from the Model R, which produces 800 horsepower and 748 Nm of torque. A 6-speed sequential gearbox sends power to the rear wheels. The Zonda Revolucion underwent significant changes to the car`s aerodynamics, weighing just 2,360 pounds (1,070 kg) due to the extensive use of carbon fiber and titanium. This weight is likely to increase as Lanzante changes road traffic. Lanzante did not detail the changes made to the Revolución to make the car legal, but typical changes include suspension and ride height changes, as well as brakes and cooling systems. There is also the mounting of items such as indicators, license plate holder and safety equipment inside.

We can see that the interior of the Revolucion has also been optimized for comfort. One of them is now being converted for road transport by the same talented people from Lanzante Limited, the British company behind the road-legal LM McLaren P1 GTR. Details on the changes it will receive have not been disclosed, but we can imagine that the suspension configuration will undergo some revisions to make it less rigid than the original settings configured for the flat surface of a race track. We all know those multi-million dollar hypercars built just for the track, names like the Pagani Zonda R, the Pagani Zonda Revolucion of which only 5 were made, or a McLaren Senna GTR, not to mention the all-new Pagani Huayra R that will soon be built, these are all amazing hypercars designed to their limits. But to be used only on the race track, none of these cars are legal on the road, so you can`t enjoy them on the road. Or is it the case? A post shared by Pagani Automobili Official (@paganiautomobili) During the production of the Revolucion, Pagani also significantly changed the aerodynamics of the vehicle.
