Well, a British buyer found the perfect solution. He commissioned the Italian manufacturer to create a special Zonda, just for him, Luxist reported.
That is how the Zonda PS was born, a one-of-a-kind version made especially for Peter Saywell. And yes, you got it right. PS comes from his initials. Since the Cinque was sold out and the Zonda R can only be driven on the race track, the PS had to be based on the penultimate Zonda F chassis.
The gearbox is the same with the one to be used on the future C9 model and has a modified exhaust system. As you well know, Zonda F has 4 exhaust pipes that form a square which is surrounded by a circle.
But if you take a look at the pictures, you’ll see that in this PS model, the four pipelines are in line and are surrounded by an ellipse. The rear diffuser has also been changed and is about the same length as the one of Zonda Cinque.
The vehicle is said to be powered by a 650-horsepower version of the Zonda's Mercedes-AMG V12 engine driving through the sequential transmission developed for the Zonda's highly anticipated successor.
That is about fifty horses more than the Zonda F but only a little less than the Cinque and R versions.
What else can you find in Saywell’s garage? Well, let’s just say that beauties like Koenigsegg CCX, Lamborghini LP640, Porsche Carrera GT and Techart GTStreet will keep the Zonda PS warm in winter.
