|The Phantom of the Shutokou|
This is known to be the ultimate Zonda ever built for circuit racing purposes only. It was the kind of Zonda that can accumulate at top speed of 350km/h, 0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds, and it achieved a Nurburgring Nordschelife in 6:47.50, making it the fastest of the non-series/road-legal vehicles attempted. This is the Pagani Zonda R, the ultimate Pagani Zonda ever built.
|The Zonda R rattles the expressway|
When I first laid my eyes on the Pagani Zonda R, it was like that it was the most wonderful machine I have ever encountered. Upon hearing the engine start, this was a complete madman. I definitely want to hear the engine start of the Zonda R again and again until I pass out. Anyway, the Zonda R is a carbon-fiber bodied car that weighs to an impressive 1070kg, a reputation that this should have been gained the title of "SUPERLEGGERA" of non-series/road-legal vehicles but forget about it. The Zonda R is powered by a 6.0 L AMG V12 engine found in the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR, which produces 740HP of power, 523ft-lb of torque, top speed of 350km/h, 0-100km/h in 2.7 seconds, and it achieved a Nurburgring Nordschelife in 6:47.50. We sure know that watching some car magazine shows like Top Gear and Fifth Gear really payed off about the ferocious power of the Zonda R.
Here in Gran Turismo 5, you are seeking it as an enemy but once you have the Zonda R in your hands, you seek to this car as an ally. For that, you can upgrade the Zonda R's 6.0L AMG V12 engine to a maximum power of 815HP just by buying the High RPM Range Turbo Kit. It's up to you to decide which Suspension setting fits best on the Zonda R. The right suspension setting leads to greater cornering and greater lap times.
|Attempting for the Nurburgring official record|
Whoever owns the Zonda R on GT5 are often willing to show off their manly lap record that is on par against the Zonda R official record at the Nurburgring but this is just for fun. When the Zonda R's traction control is off, this one's extremely hard to control, even the launch is simply hard to handle. It takes practice and once you have the edge, you'll learn how to take advantage of the Zonda R's true self without the driving aids.
|The Pagani Zonda R's Japan arrival|
Patience is a virtue for those who have the keys to the Zonda R but if they want to take a break after rigorous battles, they can bring it outside for Photo Travel since the Zonda R is a Premium Tier car that costs 2,600,000 Credits and requires an A-Spec/B-Spec level of 23. This race car is all about respect. Once you're pushing to the limit, you'll never resist the temptation of speed. You should be happy about the way the Pagani Zonda R behaves but this car has limitations. Players online should know that once they looked at your Zonda R, they'll have some choices to make. Will they welcome you or not? That is the question only your mind can answer.
