How much does a Pagani Zonda cost?

With only two separate models that have been released (Zonda & Huayra) by car maker Pagani Automobili you would think that their line-up is boring. But when you really dive deeper into the vehicles that Pagani put on the road and into our wildest dreams you might be surprised.

Even thought the Zonda was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show back in the year 1999, Pagani has kept updating the model for years and years after it’s initial release, and the newest models are still up to par to more well known hypercars.

Lets have a detailed look at the Zonda versions that Pagani made and discover the pricing history of the Pagani Zonda, from the very first C12 to the Zonda Cinque Roadster, and everything in-between.

Pagani Zonda C12

As stated before, the first Pagani car was debuted at the Geneva Motor Show back in 1999. Pagani claims the supercars bodywork was inspired by the Silver arrows of the Mercedes C group. The name Zonda refers to a dry wind found in the Andes mountains in Argentina, and the bodywork will catch you like the dry dusty wind will on the slope of the Andes. With the bodywork of the car being almost all carbon-fibre, the DNA for the model had been set. The car is powered by a V12, Mercedes-Benz AMG engine that produces 394 hp and a maximum torque of 570 Nm.

The starting price of the C12 was $325 000 back in the day.

Pagani Zonda C12 S

The Zonda C12 S is similar to the C12, but it uses a modified (by Mercedes-AMG nonetheless) version of the Mercedes-Benz V12 that was powering to C12. The car weighs only 1250 kg, and it is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.7 seconds.

The MSRP of this supercar was $920 000.

Pagani Zonda F

The F in Zonda F stands for Fangio, which is named after Formula 1 driver Juan Manuel Fangio. As stated before, Pagani has kept improving the Zonda since the day they first released the very first C12. This is also true for the Zonda F, that was unveiled back in 2005. Although it is a lot similar to previous models, but the intake manifolds and exhaust system had seen upgrades. The car can now accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, and the 0 to 200 km/h time is in 9.8 seconds. The production of this car was limited to a scarce 25 units.

The files are a bit unclear, and sources do not align their price estimates, but it is safe to claim that the MSRP of the Pagani Zonda F was $1 100 000 up to $1 400 000.

Pagani Zonda Cinque

The Pagani Zonda Cinque was designed and manufactured for five (hence the name Cinque, Italian for five) rich supercar lovers.  The goal of this car was to be the best performing, race track ready, yet road legal car in the world. This car is even more special because of the unique materials that were used in the car. The bodywork is made of carbon fibre, mixed with titanium in the weave, ensures a more rigid frame. Additionally, the springs are made of ergal (an aluminium alloy) and titanium. The car is still powered by a V12 Mercedes-AMG engine, but as a result of all the improvements made to the car, it now speeds from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.2 seconds. Visible changes to the bodywork are a longer front splitter, updated side skirts and an adjustable rear spoiler.

This car was built on request of a Pagani dealer in Hong Kong, and the real MSRP of the Zonda Cinque is unclear. The models were sold for $1 800 000 to $2 000 000.

The Cinque Roadster has the same specs as the Cinque, except it’s roof can be open. Of this specification, Pagani also built just five cars.

The MSRP for the Zonda Cinque Roadster was $2 000 000.

Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta

You might not think ‘special’ Zondas exist, because you can argue that every Zonda is special, but the Zonda HP Barchetta still is truly unique. Not only because this was the last Zonda ever produced, also because it used to be the most expensive car in the world, and only three of them were produced, with one going to the private collection of Horacio Pagani, founder of the company.

As if all of this is not enough, this is also the most powerful road legal Pagani Zonda to be ever made. The Zonda is still powered by the Mercedes-AMG V12 engine, giving the vehicle 800 hp. If you plan on befriending one of the owners of these unique cars in order to borrow the car for a fun trip you shouldn’t be afraid to mess up your hairstyle, a roof for this car does not exist.

The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta used to be the most expensive car on the world, with an MSRP of $15 000 000. This price tag was surpassed by Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire recently.
