Pagani have released a roadster version of their Zonda Cinque supercar which is in turn a street legal version of their Zonda R track car.

The Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster is powered by a Mercedes AMG V12 engine outputting six hundred and seventy one horsepower giving it a top speed of three hundred and fifty kilometers an hour. As the name suggests only five Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster’s will be made. [ sybarites ]
