An off-road excursion ends in nearly a million dollars worth of destructionEnlarge Photo
Leaving the roadway backwards at what appears to be a high rate of speed, the Zonda then struck a pole rear-end first. The engine caught fire shortly afterward, compounding the damage. An almost total loss, the car will likely be laid to rest where it met its end, in Dobczyce, Poland.
During its life, the Zonda F coupe was one of an elite handful of all-carbon-fiber supercars, and nearly a doppelganger of the car that just over a year ago held the Nurburgring production car lap record. Rated at 594hp (443kW) from its 7.3L V12 engine and weighing in at just 2,700lb (1,230kg), the car's performance is truly world-class.
