Italian supercar-stable Pagani has wooed the world with its offspring, the Zonda, a street-burning car known for its shrieks and ever-excited engine. Now, as Pagani bids farewell to its creation, the company has pulled the veil off the final Zonda, christened the Pagani Zonda 764 Passione. Based on the Zonda Fchassis and sporting the insides of the 760 RS and 760 LH, this will be the last Zonda to roll off Pagani’s assembly lines and will pack enough exposed carbon fiber to make most supercars of its pedigree go red faced. Topped with pink accents as per the buyer’s wishes, the car also has the word “Passione” inscribed on its valve covers, and comes with pink brake calipers, setting it a mile apart from the usually intimidating Zonda.
Pagani will replace the Zonda with the Huayra, yet another jaw-dropping supercar that will continue the Zonda’s reign of street supremacy.No Comments

Valencia‘s Ever Banega has had terrible luck when it comes to cars this year. Back in February, he suffered a broken ankle that kept him out for six months after it rolled backwards while he was filling up at a gas station because he forgot to set the handbrake. Now, his super expensive new Ferrari has been charred to a crisp because of a “short circuit.”
The vehicle that caught fire on Monday was a brand new Ferrari worth around 250,000 euros [$306,506], the [Valencia] spokesman added, and pictures carried in local media showed only the front part of the car remained unscathed with the rest, including the passenger cabin, burnt to a black crisp.
The blaze seemed to have been caused by some sort of short circuit, the spokesman said.
According to Spanish paper AS, Banega was driving the car outside of Valencia when he saw smoke coming from the back of the car and that the fire occurred spontaneously. In 2010, Ferrari recalled the 458 Italia because “an adhesive used to attach a heat shield under the rear fender can ignite under high temperatures, leading to a larger fire in the engine bay.”
Though he was fortunate to make it out unharmed, after this, Ever Banega might just start taking the bus.No Comments
