We ogled over the photos when Pagani announced its limited edition Zonda Tricolore model last week and, as expected, it looks even more impressive in it’s blue-tinted carbon fiber flesh. A salute to the the Frecce Tricolore, Italy’s famous air force acrobatics team, this special edition special Zonda supercar is based on the Zonda Cinque. It uses a special carbon-titanium weave for the body, which has been coated in a special clear blue lacquer. In addition it gets the red, white and green stripes of the Italian flag pinstriped up the front of the car.
Like the Cinque, it is powered by an AMG-sourced 7.3-liter V12 engine with (we presume) an identical 678-hp and 575 ft-lbs of torque. Other highlights include LED lights and magnesium wheels. Just one model will be built and sold (we’re sure its already sold) for 1.3 million Euros ($1.75 million).
The Zonda Tricolore is likely the last special edition Zonda model before Pagani delivers its replacement, code named C9. But until the Zonda is officially retired, browse through our gallery of photos below, showing what is easily one of the most beautiful automotive works of art ever created.
