When it comes to building one-off hypercars for the world’s rich, Pagani is up there with the best. The Italian automaker unveiled its iconic Zonda 20 years ago, and while it is currently building its second model, the Huayra, car enthusiasts continue to lust over its firstborn.
A South American businessman turned the world of bespoke Zondas on its head a few years ago by ordering the Zonda 760RS. Since then, dozens of additional models have been built for customers around the world as part of this ‘760’ series. One of the most impressive, and most recent, is the Zonda Fantasma Evo.
Owned by a man in Hong Kong, the Zonda Fantasma Evo truly is a piece of automotive art and SeenThroughGlass recently had the opportunity to check it out up close.
The Zonda Fantasma Evo was once just known as the Fantasma (which is Greek for “ghost”, by the way). However, its owner sent it back to Italy after a couple of years of ownership for a serious of aerodynamic upgrades, hence the “Evo” moniker.
The first thing you’ll notice about this Zonda is the extraordinary dark red carbon fiber found across the exterior. Additionally, it has a towering rear wing, a Cinque-style roof scoop, a bold rear diffuser, black wheels, and one of the most remarkable cabins of any vehicle on earth. What makes the vehicle even more special is that its 760 hp, 7.3-liter V12 engine is hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission.
