Push-Starting a Pagani is the Ultimate First-World Problem

Owner humiliated in Cannes.

Not being able to fire up your Pagani Zonda F Roadster while holidaying in Cannes is the sort of problem we'd love to wake up to. All Paganis are rare, but this model especially so being one of just 25 units built by the Italian bespoke hypercar creator. It’s a car you want to be seen in, although perhaps not while a group of willing passersby are providing a push-start after the AMG-built 7.3-liter V12 refuses to fire up. Thankfully, the drop-top Pagani weighs just 1,280 kg, so it didn’t take too much effort to awaken the beautiful beast.

No word on whether the driver later took the supercar to its top speed of 214 mph. But that was an option he had and the rest of us only dream about.
