This Pagani Zonda Is a Replica Powered By An Audi V8 and Built From Scrap


Someone just bought it for $10,000.

Dubbed the “Zonda i” (i for inspired), this Pagani Zonda replica was recently auctioned on eBay with the winning bid coming in at £7,100. Based on a 1989 Ford Scorpio (the US had the car briefly in the late Eighties, sold as the Merkur Scorpio) with a space frame based on the Ultima GTA, the DIY Zonda comes powered by an Audi-sourced 3.7-liter twin-turbo V8 mated to a five-speed Audi box. The UK-based seller claims that with the right mapping, the engine could put down over 500 horsepower.

Combined with a curb weight of less than 900 kg, it could also clock 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 187 mph. But it would take a brave man to attempt that. It boasts the same dimensions as the Zonda C12, and comes finished in black and blue with a pearlescent holographic metal flake. Other nice touches include 19-inch rims, Audi TT power mirrors, HD rear view camera, authentic Zonda rear lights, and touchscreen monitor. We’ve seen plenty of replicas over the years, and this is one of the better attempts. Not that the builder cares what you think, as he already found a buyer.
