What do you do when simply driving a Pagani Zonda isn’t cool enough? You do what this avid Pagani fan and collector did and hang up a Zonda Revolucion (shell) in your living room. Obviously.
The man in question goes by the name of Pablo Perez Companc and he owns both a rare Huayra BC and a Zonda Revolucion “Black Minion” specifically for track use. He’s clearly such a big fan of the iconic Italian hypercar that he decided it would make for the perfect art piece.
The son of Argentina’s wealthiest individual, Companc uses a Pagani Zonda as a living room divider in his $8 million oceanfront Miami condo. In fairness, it’s not a fully working car, but rather an empty Zonda shell — which explains why the windows are fully tinted.
In an Instagram post, Companc explains that the Zonda in his living room “is just a work of art” that “structurally will never be able to receive an engine or the entire mechanical part. I would never condemn Black Minion to being locked in a living room. Race cars are for driving.”
There is a lot of talk about the Zonda that I have in my house. First of all, it’s not my Zonda Revolution Black Minion. This is just a work of art. Structurally will never be able to receive an engine or the entire mechanical part. I would never condemn Black Minion to being locked in a living room. Race cars are for driving 😈🌚. Se hablo mucho del Zonda que tengo en mi casa . Primero que todo, no es mi Zonda Revolucion Black Minion . Esto es solamente una obra de arte. Estructuralmente jamas va a poder recibir un motor o toda la parte mecanica . Jamas condenaria a Black Minion a estar encerrado en un living. Los autos de carrera son para manejar😈🌚. #darkminion #blackminion #pagani #carbonfiber #rideordie #miami #paganizonda #zondar
Given that Pagani Zondas are somewhat rarer than VW Golfs, getting hold of a bodywork surely wasn’t easy. However, we assume that Companc and Horacio Pagani know each other and that made it more simple for the billionaire’s son to get hold of a Zonda carbon fiber shell.
Something harder to accomplish was transporting the Zonda bodywork into the condo, as cutting it into smaller pieces was definitely not an option. According to Curbed, installing the vehicle was done with the help of an exterior crane that lifted the Zonda into the air and through the condo’s balcony doors.
Once the bodywork was inside, it was rotated in a vertical position and fixed into a custom aluminum and carbon fiber stand. If anyone doubted the fact that Paganis were works of art, this should settle the discussion once and for all.
This isn’t the first time an Italian exotic has been strung up on a wall. Perhaps most famously, the Lamborghini museum in Sant’Agata has had a selection of the brand’s models hung up as art pieces over the years. When we visited the facility in 2016, a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, complete with its engine, was displayed.
