I never thought I'd find myself driving a Pagani Zonda Cinque, let alone chasing another Zonda Cinque while both cars are spitting out endless fireballs! Thanks to @dan_am_i a dream has become reality as we take the two cars for a drive to get a full experience for what this unbelievable car is all about.
The Pagani Zonda Cinque is a poster car, an icon, a rare and limited machine of which only 5 Coupes and 5 Roadsters were ever built, 2 of which are sat side by side in @Dan_am_i's garage alongside the even rarer 1-of-3 Zonda Tricolore. Of each body style, only 2 cars were painted in unique colour schemes and to see these together is just truly stunning but that's just the start.
With an initial plan to take the Cinque Roadster out on a run to dinner, it evolves to include the Cinque Coupe as well. We are talking two cars with near on 700hp of naturally aspirated V12s which thanks to a 6 speed automated manual means for epic fire balls to be spat out of the exhausts on each shift. Matched up to the scoop overhead sucking in the air and the wail of the V12 as the revs build, the experience is absolutely out of this world.
Many special iterations and versions of the Zonda have arrived over the years since the initial introduction but the Cinque was intended to be the last at the time it launched. As such it was the first truly limited special edition and will hold a special place in the hearts of many for all of time. I can say with absolute certainty that it has grabbed me and having never been the biggest fan of the Zonda, I am now truly smitten.
