Pagani Zonda R - Nurburgring lap
Pagani - Pirelli Tyre - Assuring new technologies and materials are fit for production means also putting the vehicle's components under severe stresses, exceeding those normally encountered in every day road driving.
The Nürburgring Nordschleife is the most demanding track in the world, for man and machine, an ordeal that each Pagani has to pass, only one of many in the entire development phase.
The Zonda R serves as the ultimate test bench, a car able to reach acceleration figures and speeds that are not possible with a road car.
This is further underlined by a laptime of 6:47,5 min for the 20,832 km Nordschleife. Driver: Marc Basseng
800hp Gumpert Apollo in Action - 270km/h Onboard!
I went for an incredible ride in a friend's Gumpert Apollo, the ONLY ONE in Italy! The car has been modified and now produces 800hp, the same as the not street-legal Apollo race version! Video shows me inside this beasty machine for a couple of laps at the Monza racetrack. From the inside you can hear the lovely sound of the twin turbo engine and it's really impressive how fast is this car in the corners! I really want to thanks the owner for this amazing ride, be sure to take a look at his website if you want to join his trackdays events:
