2010 Pagani Zonda Tricolore
On the occasion of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the ‘Frecce Tricolori’, Pagani Automobili created the Zonda Tricolore as a tribute to the National Aerobatic Team. The latest Zonda variant is this Tricolore special edition. It first appeared in the Pagani showroom in late January of 2010 and was photographed by our friend Julien Giambagli of Supercarfrance.com.
This first car was built as a one-of for the Spanish importer Guarnieri. Like the Cinque editions that were built for a Hong Kong dealership, the Tricolore has numerous special features including the flappy-paddle gearbox from X-trac. The car uses tinted carbon fibre much like the Veyron Grand Sport ‘Sang Bleu’ released in 2009. This new Zonda also has upgrades from both the Cinque and Zonda R.
Probably the most unique feature, asides from the color, is a small fin which sits on the engine cover. Other aerodynamic pieces include the front splitter, rear wing and diffuser from the Cinque. The top of the rear fenders have scoops from the the Zonda R for brake cooling. The front lighting system is overhauled to include new LED front signals and more-protruding projector-beam headlights.
Inside and between the seats is a plaque which states “Pagani Zonda Tricolore 1 of 1, Exclusively made for Guarnieri.” Furthermore, the symbol of the Guarnieri BMW/MINI dealership in Marbellas, Spain is embroidered on the headrests. Later Pagani attached a badge which stated “Zonda Tricolore 1 of 3” for the Geneva Motor Show and removed the embroidered headrests.
The Tricolore livery is new the Zonda range. The theme is a two-tone stripe which runs down the side of the car. At the front, it is split up by the Italian national colors which continue on the rear wing. The broad stripe its actually tinted carbon fiber with a small outline in opaque blue.
Today we can present three excellent images of the Tricolore from Pagani’s own showroom in Modena. We hope to get more details once Pagani releases their own information and images.
