Horacio was influenced by the 1980s endurance racing cars like the Jaguar XJR-9, Porsche 962 and Sauber S9 and hence the Zonda HP Barchetta gets covered wheel arches.

Pagani Zonda Supercars are like the WWE wrestler Undertaker, every now and then we hear that the car is dead and from nowhere a supercar in a brand new avatar makes a grand comeback. It was in 2014 when Pagani announced that the company will discontinue the development of its Zonda Supercar after the stunning Zonda Revolucion, but again one “last Zonda” has been revealed at the ongoing Monterey Car week in California in the form on Zonda HP Barchetta that has been built for the man who is in charge of everything. Horacio Pagani himself commissioned this one last Zonda and has ditched the roof on the Zonda HP Barchetta. While Pagani’s efforts are now centered around the Huarya, the “Last Zonda” has been built in Italy for a very specific customer. On the rear of this supercar features large wheel spats adding to proper aerodynamics. The chopped down windscreen flows straight back into the rising bodywork of the Barchetta. Zonda’s are the best sounding Pagani thanks to the muffling turbochargers on the AMG built V-12 engines. Horacio has opted for a 6-speed manual gearbox on his new beast.

Horacio was influenced by the 1980s endurance racing cars like the Jaguar XJR-9, Porsche 962 and Sauber S9 and hence the Zonda HP Barchetta gets covered wheel arches. If reports are to be believed then Pagani is planning to built three units of this “Last Zonda”, one for Horacio Pagani himself and the rest two will go up on sale. In all possibility, this supercar would at least get a price tag of $15 million. All the three units will a tartan theme to the interiors.

While this might all add up to create the wildest ever Zonda ever, it's safe to say that this is not the last Zonda ever, there are too many rich people in the world and for them, exclusivity is what matters that they find in cars like Zonda HP Barchetta. So let’s stop calling it the last of its kind and let the world be embraced with more such stunning looking beauties.
