On the downside, we may be staring at our last Zonda special edition.
According to Internet reports, this is the last in a long line of special edition Zondas.The purple-and-carbon Zonda F Roadster was built for a Ukrainian customer who reportedly also has a Zonda R. It's the very last of the 25-run Zonda F Roadster models.
As you can see, this particular buyer likes his purple. The body gets a mix of deep purple and glossy carbon and the interior gets more pinkish-purple (purplish-pink?) than an interior ever should.
The Zonda F Roadster is powered by the hard-hitting 7.3-liter AMG V-12 engine that throws out 650 horses. It was originally unveiled at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show and later went on to set a record (in Clubsport tune) at the Nurburgring and make some wealthy customers very happy.
While we'll miss the Zonda and all the wildly colored special editions that seemed to pop up every couple months, we're looking forward to the launch of the Huayra. The new Pagani sticks with an AMG V-12, but goes smaller and turbo with a 6.0-liter, twin-turbo unit. The Huayra puts out 700 horsepower and races to 62 mph from rest in 3.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 230 mph.
