To save the Earth from dying.
Lewis Hamilton is an undeniable force in the world of motorsport, and any brand would be happy to be associated with his name (especially now that he's a Sir). When Hamilton struck fame early on in his F1 career, companies were all too willing to throw money, and cars at him, and one brand, in particular, caught his eye: Pagani. This exotic Italian car manufacturer built Hamilton a one-off Zonda 760 LH back in 2014, and since then, this rare beauty, finished in deep purple and exposed carbon fiber, has become tied in with his stylish persona.
These days the star is a hardcore climate activist, and has publicly promised to stop driving supercars, and instead spends his time driving a Mercedes-Benz EQC. Hamilton's long-neglected Zonda has now been sold, opening up more space in his garage for composters and bug farms.
Back in August we caught the superstar driving his Zonda to a yacht party with Samuel L. Jackson in his home city of Monaco, even after telling reporters: "I don't drive any of the cars that I own anymore." That was the last time Hamilton drove the car, and now, according to The Zonda Registry, the car has been sold. Hamilton owned the special Pgani for a total of seven years, and in that time covered less than 620 miles. The car did see a minor bumper bashing during this period, but that has since been rectified, and the car is once again in perfect showroom condition.
This car, based on the Zonda 760 RS, is a special one-off button, specifically for Hamilton, and features one of the best sounding V12 engines the world has ever known. The 7.3-liter V12 motor produces a massive 760 horsepower, and sends its power to the rear wheels via an exclusive six-speed manual transmission. This Zonda 760 LH is now UK based, and we're sure the new owner will let everyone know who the previous possessor was for years to come.
