With the sophistication and power of Coco Chanel, the brilliance and complexity of the Koh-i-Noor diamond, and the rarity and value of the 1787 Lafitte Th. J., the world’s most expensive wine, the Pagani Zonda Tricolore continues to elude all but the most discerning car enthusiasts. Despite being built as a singular, bespoke model to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Italian National Aerobatic Squadron, Frecce Tricolori, the Zonda evolved into a limited production of three. The Tricolore, the second model of the three, is distinguished by its lacquered body, exuding a warmth and translucence not found in the typical painted chassis.
The Pagani Zonda Tricolore – Rarest of the Rare
Like the elusive Amur Leopard, the ultra-rare Zonda is built for speed. Its strength and style is distinguished by its blue brake calipers, gold wheels, and carbon titanium weave. In homage to his homeland, Pagani infused the Zonda’s clear blue lacquer with red, white and green racing stripes to mirror Italy’s flag.The interior wears the same colors, sporting gloss carbon fiber, aluminum, and white and blue leather seats. It’s easily one of the best color combinations we’ve ever seen. Currently for sale in Riyadh’s Seven Car Lounge, the Pagani Zonda Tricolore would be a perfect fit for The Auto Gallery, alongside its other rare and exotic vehicles.
The mid-mounted engine, a Mercedes-derived 7.3-liter V12 with 678 horsepower, is able to hit 62 mph in 3.4 seconds, and 124 mph in 9.6 seconds. A fierce rival for any modern Ferrari or Lamborghini, this 2010 Pagani Zonda Tricolore can soar to over 220 mph. Price is on request, but if previous special editions are any indication, expect a price tag of nearly $2,000,000.
