2011 Pagani Zonda F Review


Inspired Italian Supercar

A three-quarter front view of a 2011 Pagani Zonda F

In short: A super fast Italian-made supercar.

When first introduced in 2005, the Pagani Zonda F turned heads across the European continent with its unique carbon fiber design and thundering Mercedes-Benz AMG V12 engine. Today, the Zonda F retains its title as one of the fastest production cars in the world — and remains just as sought after by serious car collectors. However, if you're an American intent upon buying a Pagani Zonda F, you may want to consider a move abroad, as well — this Italian-made supercar unfortunately isn't approved by the EPA.
