Pagani is renowned the world over for building some of the most incredible cars.

Currently the Italian specialist marque has the Zonda F in production as both a coupe and roadster but has been planning to build a race version called the Zonda R.

The Zonda R has not made it into production yet and remains a 1:8 scale model but design cues have been used to manufacture a road-legal version of it, which is called the Pagani Zonda Cinque.

The Cinque features the same AMG V12 engine which has been used in different iterations throughout the history of the Zonda, The car weighs 2,668 pounds without fluids, so performance is just this side of astonishing: 0-60-mph acceleration takes less than 3.4 seconds, and terminal velocity is said to top 217 mph.

The name Cinque derives from the fact that only five examples will be made : all five copies reportedly have been presold for some $1.25 million each.
