Lewis Hamilton knows a thing or two about super fast cars, so it makes sense he chose a very special car to take up a spot in his personal garage. The former Formula 1 Champion has reportedly placed an order for a special edition Pagani Zonda.
It’s unclear what will set apart Hamilton’s car from the Zonda 760 RS, but reports suggest the ‘RS’ moniker will be replaced with ‘LH.’ While the special-edition Zonda 760 LH may keep the same engine, there’s a good chance it will be equipped with a manual gearbox. Hamilton has been reported as saying that his “company car has a paddle-change gearbox, so when I drive for fun, I want a manual.”
The powerful Zonda 760 RS is based on a Zonda F, with horsepower bumped up to 760—increases of 90 hp and 20 hp over the Cinque and Zonda R, respectively. Top speed is estimated at more than 217 mph. Pagani says it will keep building bespoke Zondas for customers who want them instead of the new Huayra and, of course, can afford them at more than $1 million a pop.
