The death of a supercar is never a pretty sight, because they tend to go out as they lived: spectacularly. This Pagani Zonda F coupe is no exception, its tangled body a mess of shattered carbon fiber and melted rubber.

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. With 594 horsepower generated from its 7.3-liter V-12 engine and weighing in at just 2,700 pounds, the car's performance is truly world-class.
