A new video documenting the Pagani Zonda R’s 6-minute 47-second Nurburgring lap time has been released. The Zonda R lap time shatters the one set some time ago by the Ferrari 599XX at 6:58. Even though the Zonda R is built off of a street-car design, it is not a street-legal car therefore this will not go down in the record book for fastest production car around the Ring.
Still, the Radical SR8LM holds the record for fastest street-legal car around the Nurburgring with a recorded time of 6:48.
The Pagani Zonda R is pure race-car tipping the scale at only 2,359lbs. The Zonda R is capable of a mad dash to 60mph from a standstill in just 2.7 seconds mainly due to its 750 horsepower and 524 ft-lbs of torque 6.0-liter AMG V12 engine. To witness that shear power for yourself, check out the full Zonda R Nurburgring run video below. Enjoy!
