Have close to $2.3 million burning a hole in your pocket? Want to own the final Pagani Zonda F Roadster to ever leave the assembly line? You finally have your chance, as the number 24 Pagani Zonda F Roadster, sporting 621 miles on the odometer is up for sale. Even though Pagani Zonda had wanted to create 25 F Roadsters, only 24 ever made it out of the factory.
With the Gumball 3000 already underway (it started May 26), the folks in charge of the international parade of shenanigans has released a video showing the rally’s start in Covent Garden, London. The 19 minute video shows over 100 of the most magnificent and rare supercars in the world. Even the rain couldn’t stop the massive crowd that gathered to watch the beginning of the world’s most fun and most glamorous rally.
The 3000 mile rally will start in London and end in Istanbul over a seven day period across 10 countries, via Paris, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Milan, Venice, Zagreb, Belgrade and Sofia. It was also revealed that the 2011 rally would cost £25,000 to take part in.
Participants include the “who’s who” of the international social scene, Sheikhs, entrepreneurs, oil tycoons, and dot com billionaires.
The incredible line up includes Pagani Zondas, Bugatti Veyrons, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Aston Martins, Jaguars, Porsches, Morgans and several Lotus’, and this year, over 20 eco and concept electric cars are taking part as Gumball enters a new decade of green motoring!

These days, Lego has done such brilliant marketing to stay relevant to all ages that we can hardly consider it a child’s toy anymore. From Lego edition video games (which are great for kids and adults) to this Pagani Zonda C12 S, we think it’s safe to say Lego is really for everyone.
It’s hard to make a successful sequel, and in the styling department Pagani’s new Huayra is hardly a worthy successor to the Zonda. Overlooking the car’s catfish mouth is becoming easier with every time we see the car; our objections diminishing significantly when we first saw it in person at the Geneva Auto Show. Now we’re really starting to fall in love with the car thanks to some extra-sexy high-production quality video released by the Italian supercar manufacturer.
The world of video games is full of competition, and getting the exclusivity to a feature helps get you a leg up on the competition. Now that Gran Turismo 5 is on sale (and receiving awesome patch updates) the world of console racing games is wide open. What can other video game developers possibly come up with to rival the fame of Gran Turismo 5? How about getting the exclusivity to include Pagani’s Huayra?
Shift 2 Unleashed, part of the Need for Speed series, will be the only racing game that will offer the ability to drive Pagani’s Huayra, virtually of course. We’ll be curious how the game executes simulating 700-hp out of a carbon-titanium monocoque chassis.
Shift 2 Unleashed will be available on March 29th in North America and April 1st in Europe.

When you make machines as exotic, powerful and achingly beautiful as Pagani does, coming up with an encore is a tall order. The maker of ultra-rare exotics has, however, decided to do just that announcing that the Huayra would be the official successor to the Zonda. Now Pagani has revealed its latest destroyer of Prancing Horses and Raging Bulls well ahead of the car’s planned debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March.
Oh, the humanity! Pagani’s Zonda supercar was one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful cars of all time, but a purported spy shot coming from a Spanish language car magazine shows the Pagani Huayra to be a catfish-mouthed monstrosity, with all manner of gills, bulging headlights and a snout that looks like its perpetually open.
Pagani has just released the second teaser video in a five-part installment, before officially revealing its new supercar at the Geneva Auto Show in March.
Initially believed to be called the Huayra (a word that means ‘wind’ in the South American dialect of Quechua), the newest name being tossed around is Deus Venti. This likely won’t be the final name either, but it is a good one, meaning “God of the Winds” in Latin.
The video gives us a glimpse inside the Zonda successor, with an absolutely stunning interior made up of only the highest grade materials.
No other details have been confirmed, but the car is believed to do away with the old naturally aspirated AMG engine, in favor of a newer AMG twin-turbo V12, making 690-hp and over 700 ft-lbs of torque.
