Pagani Zonda R Evolution (2012 - 2013)

The first evolution of the already brutal Zonda R is, as its own name indicates, the Zonda R Evolution.
Pagani chose the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed to introduce it to the public.

The mechanical improvements with regards the R concentrate on the engine, which increases its power by 50 hp (49 bhp) towards the 800 (789), in the aerodynamics, with new elements like the new front winglet of considerable size over the two smaller ones that were already present, the carbon fiber "fin" that came with the Tricolore, which in this case links the rear end of the roof-mounted air scoop with the rear wing creating a sinuous line that crosses nearly three quarters parts of the length of the body or the second rear spoiler under the massive main wing. These changes are bound to increase the aerodynamic load even more with regards the R, allowing for higher cornering speeds.
The rest of the changes are focused in the suspension and the chassis.
All of these changes are possible without an overall weight increase of the car.

Pagani has never reveal official times for the R Evolution, but it's very possible that it has been able to achieve faster times than the R.

5 units of the R EVO were projected to be built from scratch, as well as R owners were offered to upgrade their cars to the specifications of these units.
