GTR 3 – Pagani Zonda R Announced

Following the P4/5 Competizione and the Corvette C6.R GT2, Simbin has revealed the next licensed car to join their upcoming GTR3 title – The Pagani Zonda R.

Making its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in 2007, the Zonda R is powered by a six-litre V12 engine from Mercedes Benz. The car weighs little over 1000 kilos, 15 examples of the car have been built.

Unlike the P4/5 and the Corvette, the Zonda R isn’t a homologated race car that’s legal in any sports car racing series, the car is used solely at track day events. Still, the Zonda was used to tackle the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time record driven by German race car driver Marc Basseng who put down a record-breaking 6:47 minute lap.

    GTR3 will be a GT2 game, as they currently do not hold any licensing to GT1 or GT3, the only running GT series currently. Stephane Ratel Organisation have not licensed these off (my dad works as the head of PR for SRO) so, unless SimBin are looking to get sued, it’s GT2 or fictional.

      Well, my secret wish was the WEC license but there is not indication of this, so… I think it’s gonna be fictional. Btw what do you mean by GT2? There is no GT2 series now. Do you think the ACO GT-Endurance?

      Btw your father is really the head of the SRO PR? I like the promotion of this series but could he do something with the Youtube names of the videos on the gt1world channel? There are underscore characters and filename extensions remaining and it looks a bit “amateurish”. Renaming a Youtube video is not a big deal AFAIK.

        Happy? :P Videos now have names

      They don’t need the series to have the cars. Look at GTR Evolution.

    Sure you mean record-breaking instead of record-braking Montoya?
    Would be weird if records started to brake :P

    Ok, back on-topic. I’m not surprised it’s in GTR3 as it was in the GT Power add-on of Race 07. I wouldn’t be surprised if an M3 E92 GTR and a Ford GT get announced later on either.

      In fact, it broke nothing. Zonda R is not road legal, so there is still a huge margin of 36 seconds to Stefan Bellof’s insane 6:11. Ferrari 599XX / Zonda R meaningless “non-series/non-road legal” category is just a PR BS.
