The Pagani road car model range would not be complete without a Roadster version of the Zonda Cinque, and like its Coupe sibling it’s also created in the Modenese Atelier in a limited production run of merely five exclusive pieces.
The new Roadster is essentially the same as the Coupe, although the carbon-titanium chassis has been redesigned for the compensation of a missing roof. Despite the modifications, the car tips the scales at just 1,210kg.
Whether you opt for a relaxed country drive in Tuscany's hills, visiting Florence and other centers of the Italian Renaissance, or a record hunt at the Nurburgring, this €1.3 million ($1.8 million) jewel will reward with every day driveability and ultimate performance thanks to the different drive modes of the newly developed sequential robostized gearbox and a fully adjustable suspension setup.
Powered by a slightly detuned version of the 7.3L V12 engine found in other Zondas that produces 678hp (505kW) and 575lb-ft (780Nm) of torque, the Cinque makes the run from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of over 200mph.
Other goodies include an Inconel and titanium exhaust system, 19 and 20in forged aluminum wheels, Pirelli PZero tires, carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes, and carbon-fiber seats with leather trim.
