I know what you’re thinking, but this isn’t just another video with a supercar revving its engine while standing still.
Actually, it is, but try not to concentrate upon the racket that the naturally aspirated, Mercedes-AMG V12 makes, because that’s not the interesting part. It might be the whole reason this video exists in the first place, but the car itself is way more interesting.
This video is about admiring a very, very rare Zonda model – even though it looks a little awkward. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fine beast, but some details look as they were assembled in a shed and that’s not part of Horacio’s regular curriculum.
Anyway, if the headlights, the LED taillights and rear wing seem like afterthoughts, they probably are; since the regular Zonda didn’t sport them. Nevertheless, that makes the car truly unique and one-off.
It’s based on the Zonda 760 model and it’s bespoke in every possible way. It has design elements borrowed from the Zonda R and even Huayra (just check out those side mirrors). Call it the Zonda 2.0, if you will, but there’s no shadow of doubt that the rear wing and the air intakes on the hood are inspired from the Zonda R.
In case you were wondering, LM stands for Le Mans and 760 from the amount of horses the engine produces. Come to think of it, the front end does resemble a car that would compete in Le Mans.
