100 Greatest Road Test

Unclasp that huge single rear clamshell and you reveal a unique piece of autoerotica. The Pagani isnt as fast as a McLaren, but it is a far better road car; more resolved, less intimidating the crucial thing about the Zonda isnt ability to go fast. We cant believe were saying this about such a mono-purpose machine, but its the package that snares you so completely. Can an apparently brandless company take on the established manufacturers? We believe the Pagani can. Product speaks louder than image; ability is a better denominator than history. The Zonda S succeeds because it is so beautifully assembled, so competent to drive and so exclusive () that the badge becomes inmaterial.
