The aggressive looking Pagani Zonda will instantly remind you of the F-22 Raptor stealth jet. It's been around for 9 years now and is starting to get old regardless of the minor upgrade it received some time back.


The next generation Zonda test mules have been spotted testing and fresh news trickles in to induce further excitement. It will shed the insane 7.3 litre engine which was developed by AMG that it currently holds. Instead the 5.4 liter supercharged V8 which is performing its duties on the McLaren SLR will find its place on the next Zonda.

This particular engine has been preferred as it delivers more power (680 odd hp compared to the 547 hp the 7.3 ltr produced) and also consumes lesser fuel than its predecessor.

It is also being rumored that the new Zonda would sprint from 0-60 mph in little more than three seconds while running out of steam at 200+ mph, carbon-fibre construction and the new engine helping the cause. Expect to see this car in the market early next year.
