    Re: Zonda 760RS

    spudgun:

    It just cracks me up that in almost every post, regardless of the topic, you bring up the Porsche 928. Even if the topic would be ' Medieval floor tiles', you would find a way to smuggle the old 928 right in. Keep it up!

    I don't think the fact that AMG makes the Zonda engine detracts from the character and identity of the car at all. They make the engine, but its specifically made for the Zonda. Its not like you're going to be at a red light in your 1.5MM Zonda F and a C73 is going to pull up next to you. 

     

    Someone else said it already but I will expand.

    The AMG V12 is not an engine built specifically for Pagani, Pangani just buy whatever Mercedes is making at the time. First it was the regular 6 liter V12, not even an AMG version, just the regular production one, then AMG make a version that's stroked to 7 liter and Pagani switched to that. AMG then stroke it again to make it 7.3 and Pagani switched again.

    I am not trashing the engine, AMG makes GREAT engines, all are hand built, all are gems. But still, it's a shared engine with a lesser car.

    Look at it this way, YOU are driving around in a Zonda 760RS, THE Pagani right now. Stopped at a stop light but then a banged up rusted up 1992 Mercedes S600 pulls up next to you, that guy inside opens the window and says, hey your Zonda has the same engine as my winter beater, and I only paid $2000 for it. How do you feel?

    Even when I know the engines are not exactly the same, one is tuned by AMG and one isn't but the basic engine block is the same one and a lot of the parts are shared too. I KNOW I am going to be extremely pissed. That's is the reason I didn't like the Zonda.

     

    Sorry but with this logic, you may also consider this. E36 M3 Evo engine is said to be half of the mighty Mclaren F1 engine. Does this make F1 a lesser car? I don't think so. enlightened

    Somehow I missed this - bonus footage from Harry's run with the 760 RS

    Pagani test driver is kind of a 'meatball' [as we refer to the over-muscled/under-brained, gel-haired, ed hardy wearing types here - not a dig at his nationality] but he certainly doesn't seem afraid to push it a bit.

    My god that motor is a masterpiece.

    Well a "meatball" and a "strand of spaghetti" - a Perfect match.

    He does have the red-shirt look going on, but he is hardly over-muuscledSmiley and since he says nothing we can't determine if he is under-brained, gel - can't tell, I'll give you the ed hardy. Why is laziness a virtue?


    Re: Zonda 760RS

    Perhaps I should have said he appears to be something of a meatball. I shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Semantics, semantics. 

    I don't recall making any claims about laziness...


    Re: Zonda 760RS

    Too many people have an either/or way of looking at things - a guy with some muscle is a meatball and a scrawny dude like Bill Gates fits into the smart mold. I believe you should improve all aspects of your life equally -- develop your muscles and your brain equally. Both the meatball and Gates are living a sub-par life. I mentioned "laziness" because that combined with a little ignorance leads to an appearance like that of the passenger in that car. The average guy should appear as fit as I guess, Jason Statham. Give the driver a few books and the passenger a few dumbbells.
