The Pagani Story, Part Five: Video

 

Over the past few weeks, we’ve brought you the first four segments of a five-part video series covering the history of Italian supercar builder Pagani Automobili. While this fifth installment marks the end of the series, it’s really just the end of the beginning for Pagani.

The videos cover the birth of Pagani Automobili through the creation of the various Zonda models, like the Zonda Cinque and the Zonda Tricolore featured in this final video.

Built at the request of Pagani’s Hong Kong dealer, in a run of just five units, the Zonda Cinque was meant to be the fastest road going Zonda ever built. Borrowing heavily from the track-only Zonda R, the Cique can generate 1,650 pounds of downforce at 186 miles per hour.

The Cinque is perhaps the finest example of what the Zonda was originally created to be - the ultimate blend of performance and luxury - but it pales in both appearance and exclusivity when compared to the Pagani Zonda Tricolore.

Intended to mark the end of Zonda production, the three Tricolore models built also pay tribute to Italy’s version of our own U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the “Frecce Tricolore,” or Tricolor Arrows. Finished in a sublime transparent blue carbon fiber, the Zonda Tricolore is arguably the most visually stunning of Pagani models.

For now, at least, since Horacio Pagani and the company the bears his name are just beginning to hit their stride. We hope the Huayra proves to be an even bigger success for Pagani, and that the Argentinean artist continues to create his rolling masterpieces.

We may not be able to afford a Pagani automobile, but we can certainly appreciate the passion behind them.
