47 seconds around the Nürburgring

Marc Basseng accomplished 6 minutes and 47 seconds around the Nürburgring in a Pagani Zonda R, shattering the old record and effectively conquering its nemesis, the Ferrari FXX. Powered by a 750 bhp, 6.0-litre AMG Mercedes V-12, this car – chassis 05 – is one of only 15 scheduled to be built and can sprint from 0-60 in only 2.7 seconds.

This 2010 Pagani Zonda R will be offered at RM upcoming Automobiles of London auction on 27 October. For a complete catalog description of this car, including a clip from an Evo Magazine article, click below.
