Pagani Zonda 760RSJX Is a Unique Hypercar as Mad as a Box of Frogs

When Modena’s Pagani Automobili started rolling out the Zonda C12 in 1999, nobody would have imagined that Horacio Pagani’s startup company would be so successful in so little time. Though the Zonda was killed off in 2013 to make way for the Huayra, what you can admire below is an all-new vehicle.

You may remember that the production run of the Italian work of art on wheels ended with a model called the Zonda Revolucion, the 206th and last of its breed as Horacio declared then. False! This one-off, fresh out of the box Zonda 760RSJX is number 207 and it debuted in Hong Kong only recently.

Specially developed for a Chinese collector of fine automobiles, GT Spirit reports that under that sleek body shell there’s a 760-series car, which translates to the following powerhouse: 7.3-liter V12 handbuilt by AMG, 760 PS (750 horsepower) and an epic noise that will send shivers down your spine. Not bad at all, not even by modern hypercar standards.

As any other Zonda out there, the 760RSJX boasts with a carbon fiber body, but that pale turquoise and naked carbon exterior is what petrolhead dreams are made of. A thin, three-color strip adorns the Italian exotica from front splitter to rear wing. The venturi tunnels of the aerodynamic diffuser are also painted turqoise, but the detail that won us over is the way the taillight bezels are painted as the Italian flag.

Once you step inside, you’re met by a sea of quilted leather that matches the exterior paint job, flappy paddles made out of carbon fiber and periscope-shaped air vents constructed from the same material. Like racecars of days gone past, this Zonda’s dashboard features a selection of toggle switches. Sat nav? Nope, that’s not available. Scroll below and droll at how Ron Alder W photographed this amazing Zonda.
