Pagani Allegedly Sets New Nordschleife Record With Zonda Revolucion

Conquering the Green Hell’s corners in the least possible amount of time was (and still is) an Olympic sport amongst car makers.

Year after year, the average lap time gets considerably lowered, as super-machines manage mind-boggling performances. Still, the road-legal Nürburgring lap record was held (for quite some time) by the Radical SR8LM, but not anymore (presumably).

In an image posted by user “lamborghiniks” – also known as Kris Singh, a.k.a. the guy who is believed to own two Venenos – on his Instagram profile, a Zonda Revolucion can be seen sporting a decal which depicts a 6:30 time on Nurburgring. The time has yet to be confirmed, but if it is, then the $2.3mil Zonda Revolucion (manufactured in only 5 units), can easily be crowned the fastest production car ever to lap the Green Hell.

The only problem is the vehicle isn’t quite road-legal everywhere, especially as it’s based on the Zonda R – a previous Nurbrgring gold performer. Chugging out around 800 hp from its 6.0-litre, AMG-enhanced V12, the carbon-fiber automobile managed to go 17 seconds faster around the track than the car it’s constructed on.

But the real question left to be answered is how did Pagani score such an incredible time with the Revolucion, since the German circuit is still governed by speed limits?

🗣🎙 LADIES and GENTLEMEN. It is with great honor and pleasure… And The NEW… KING of the Nürburgring… The Pagani Zonda Revolucion!!! With a lap time of 6:30 (😱) the Pagani Zonda Revolucion has lifted the lap record at the Nordschleife from the previous (6:47) lap time record held since 2009 by the Pagani Zonda R. Congratulations to the best car company that has ever existed, my good friends and my heroes at 🏁 @paganiautomobili 🏁 🏆6️⃣:3️⃣0️⃣🏆👏👏👏👏👏😆👍 _____________________________________________________________ #Pagani #Zonda #Revolucion #ZondaR #HoracioPagani #MichaelKübler #MercedesAMG #Mercedes #AMG #NotPoweredByDuracell #Nurburgring #Nordschleife #Nürburgring #Record #1 #Champion #KingOfTheRing #Congratulations #Friends #Iconic #HyperCar #BecauseRaceCar #BLESSED
