Another supercar bites the dust this week.
We’ve seen a spate of supercar-related accidents lately. Last week a Bugatti Chiron crashed into a ditch in Germany. Then a McLaren F1 suffered a similar fate in New Zealand. Now GTspirit reports that someone has crashed a prestigious Pagani Zonda in Tokyo, Japan. And not just any Pagani Zonda, this was a one-off special edition. Thankfully the driver survived the crash which also reportedly involved a Maybach 62S, but the same can’t be said for the Zonda’s dismembered front-end.
The circumstances of the accident are unknown, but it goes without saying that a supercar can be lethal in the hands of an inexperienced driver, so it’s best to handle them with care. The bespoke Zonda Zozo was built by Pagani and delivered to business owner Yusaku Maezawa, founder of the online Japanese clothing company ZozoTown. It’s part of Pagani’s exclusive 760 range, which earns its name from the 760 hp generated by its naturally-aspirated 7.3-liter V12 engine. The Zozo was one of the most distinctive models in this range too, with its striking purple carbon-fiber exterior similar to Lewis Hamilton’s Pagani Zonda 760LH, which was also involved in an accident, ironically.
The Zozo also has an extra set of red taillights and rear wheel covers which no other Zonda has. Still, aside from missing its front bumper, wheel arches and hood, the damage doesn’t look too extensive in the photo, but we wouldn’t want to hazard a guess at the repair bill. Note: Aside from the accident photo the Zonda featured here belongs to Lewis Hamilton and is not the Zozo.
