Restoring A Pagani Zonda To Its Original Condition Is A Fine Art

After announcing the launch of its official restoration programme, Pagani has released a short video to show us how it restores a Zonda back to showroom condition.

You wouldn’t expect Pagani to use a greasy service bay for this kind of task and you would be right; in fact the area where the magic happens looks better than most living rooms I’ve ever been in.

The programme is called Pagani Rinascimento and will basically allow owners of early Zondas to return their supercars in their original condition. Pagani will even restore down to each bolt, should the customer wishes them to.

Using the original molds and materials, Pagani’s craftsmen will restore by hand the cars and work on a single car at the time. During the restoration, they will also document everything in a special Rinascimento book that will come with the finished car.

“Our customers rely on us because we are the only ones in the world capable of rebuilding and restoring Paganis as they came out of our Atelier,” said Horacio Pagani. “We want to give our customers the emotion to be thrilled as the first time.”

  • NICE. EVERY TIME I GET MY CAR BACK FROM SERVICE WHETHER IT’S DEALER OR INDEPENDENT IT’S COVERED IN GREASE.

      Just sit in the passenger seat while it’s being serviced. If you see someone carrying grease into your vehicle, repeat these words: hold it mofo, you ain’t bringin’ that here, if you do, I’ll pop your azz, try me punk.

      • BELIEVE ME IF THEY LET YOU IN THE SERVICE AREA I WOULD. EVERY TIME I DROP IT OFF I ASK THE ATTENDANT TO PLEASE NOT GET GREASE INSIDE MY CAR. SPOKE TO MANY SERVICE MANAGERS TO NO AVAIL. I HAVE A TAN INTERIOR SO IT’S MORE OBVIOUS. IT SEEMS THE MECHANICS WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES WHILE WORKING UNDER THE HOOD BUT DON’T THINK TO TAKE THEM OFF WHEN GETTING INSIDE. AMAZING HOW THE PEOPLE YOU GO TO TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CAR TREAT IT WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF RESPECT.

    I mean that’s what happens when you have a cinematographer there to capture and stage everything so it looks as good as possible. lol.

  • I think original Zonda S is the most beautiful of them all. The F is nice evolution but nothing can compare the S elegance.

    Also it’s sad that many original Zonda is modified into “760” specification. I don’t mind with it but I’ve prefer they do it in new chassis.
