Man Crashes Into Pagani Zonda F While Filming It

If you thought you were having a bad day, spare a thought for the man that recently rear-ended a custom Pagani Zonda F in Uruguay.

Footage of the incident shows a man filming the blue Zonda from behind while driving a white van. Clearly distracted by the Italian exotic, he slams into the rear of it as traffic banks up in front of him, much to the dismay of a fellow motorist who also filmed the incident.

The Zonda F in question is one of just 25 hardtop examples ever produced and has been adorned in a number of distinct components from the factory. These include a larger carbon fiber rear wing, the same rear diffuser as the Zonda 760-series models and a small carbon fin on the decklid.

Although the video suggests quite a forceful impact, pictures of the damage sustained to the Zonda show that it will be easily repairable (but at a cost). Among the most obvious parts that’ll need replacing are the quad tailpipes and the rear bumper.

Autoblog.com.ar reports that the Zonda F is owned by businessman Jorge Gómez (coleccion_gomez on Instagram). In an interview, Gómez said that it took him eleven years to be able to afford the Zonda and that it is registered in Paraguay because it can’t legally be driven in his home country of Argentina.

Hat tip to Nicolas!

    someone corrects me here please!!
    the heading/article says that the driver who crashed into the zonda was filming.. after watching the video, i don’t think he was.. unless both the driver and the front passenger were filming..

    • SamuraiJack

      Yes, the headline is wrong. It was obviously the passenger recording, not the driver. The driver should have kept a larger following distance, but probably drove closer for a better view of the Zonda.

      • Bash

        that’s seems to be it man…. thanks!

      • Kaisuke971

        The cars ahead also seem close to each other so i think the passenger just took the opportunity really. It’s more because the Zonda out-braked the truck/pickup or whatever they were in.

  • Matthijs

    I wonder why does people think its smart to put that on youtube.. same when guys are kicking someone’s else and put it online. Cops will find you, you know..

    • Kaisuke971

      They’ll find the passenger and ask him to not film while in the car ? Interesting.

    • Status

      The person recording was not driving. The police will have a difficult time to convict him of anything.

      • Matthijs

        lol I know that. The cops part was ment to the sentence before that. My general question is why some people post things like this on youtube. It just makes you (in this case the driver and I presume the friend of the guy who is filming) look stupid

  • TrevP

    Dumb ass

  • smartacus

    Oucho Groucho!!
    I’m looking at at least a hundred grand worth of damage there.
    And i guarantee the at fault driver doesn’t carry a hundred grand in liability

    • smartacus

      all that carbon fiber replacement, and even the tips in that expensive central exhaust outlet got bent.
      all that labor, and shipping the car from Uruguay back to Italy for repair
      (if they don’t fly out a team of technicians and craftsmen)
