The restoration work on “chassis 001” also serves to highlight Pagani’s newly formed restoration and certification programme, Pagani Rinascimento, which managed to renovate existing components and fully rebuild copies of the original in order to return the car back to its exact configuration at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show.

The Zonda chassis no. 001 is finished in a silver shade inspired by Mercedes-Benz’s Group C cars. Speaking of Mercedes, the 6.0-litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine was built by the German brand. In this particular car, the engine produces 450 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. It was mated to an old-school 5-speed manual transmission. And the Zonda C12 could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds.
