    Work is well under way on Pagani’s replacement for its incredible Zonda supercar.

    This development mule for a new model, codenamed ‘C9’ by the Modena company, was snapped by our spies in Italy.

    Although the prototype’s looks are similar to the current Zonda C12’s, underneath the skin its mechanical components are thought to be new.

    The C9 is expected to use an AMG V8 - possibly a version of the Mercedes-McLaren SLR’s 5.4-litre unit – instead of the current Zonda’s Mercedes V12. Pagani sources have told Autocar that the production C9 will have a totally fresh look; rumours suggest that its design will incorporate active aerodynamics and that it will be lighter than the outgoing model.

    The current Pagani Zonda C12 was launched in 1999 and has since gone through a number of ever-more-powerful incarnations; the latest is the 750bhp, track-based Zonda R.

    It’s not yet clear whether the finished C9, due on sale late next year, will still carry the Zonda name.

  8. PLease don't ditch the AMG V12 <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
  9. Whats that with it using the old V8? Surely it should have a version of the current 6.2 liter, tuned to its max.
  10. Pagani C9:

    -Unofficial render
    -And the spy pic from Autocar
  11. It should keep the current 7.3, few engines can produce a more god-like sound.
  12. Seriously these don't look like a C9 more like the Zonda type R
  13. the C9 is supposed to be smaller and lighter than the C12, sorta like a hyper 430, so that's why the V8 I think.
  14. Is it hard to post without eyes?
  15. should be but i don't know how willing amg will be to hand over their engine
  16. Sounds about right.
  17. in before Raging Balls™
  18. Wishing "New Zonda" can raise her bar A LOT in Nordschleife(better less than 7 minutes per lap), further away from that overrated and overhyped oriential ugly supercar...
  19. I love these haters, they shit their pants each time that the V-Spec laps the N'ring.
  20. Sounds totally WRONG.
  21. Nothing wrong w/ a lower end Pagani, but the V12 Zonda needs to stay.
  22. the front end has gone more enzo style i think
  23. Sweet mother of Jesus that is awesome!
  24. Everything is wrong with a low end Pagani, since it will be NEVER MADE.
    And who said the C9 will feature a V8? Who's the creator of such bullshit????

    Danno: want to know? Not in the front... The REAR will look more Enzo style <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>... And do you all still think that's the final shape, the one in the pic? An evolution of something we already see since 10 years?
    Remember, not a single piece of the Zonda will be used on the new car...
