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.
