Reports out of Europe claim Pagani has started work on its final Zonda. The car is said to be sharing its design with two other special Zondas that were recently built, a 760 RS sold to a customer in Chile, and a 760 LH that’s rumored to have been bought by Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton.
The new car will reportedly be called the 764 Passione and come equipped with a conventional manual transmission, the same setup fitted to the 760 LH.
According to Italian website 0-100
, it will also feature a bare carbon fiber body but with contrasting pink elements, such as the brake calipers and badging on the engine valve covers.
Being based on Pagani’s most recent Zonda 760 line, the 764 Passione will feature the same 760-horsepower 7.3-liter AMG V-12 fitted to the 760 RS and 760 LH. The platform, meanwhile, is similar to the one underpinning the Zonda F, albeit with numerous upgrades borrowed from the track-only Zonda R and limited edition Cinque.
The reported reason for this being the last Zonda is due to AMG having ceased production of the mighty V-12 that goes into every Zonda.
