91 Zonda R laps "the Ring" in 6:47, becomes the fastest EERCDITC

Cover for Zonda R laps "the Ring" in 6:47, becomes the fastest EERCDITC

The unthinkable has happened. In the widely popular class of extremely expensive road car-derived Italian track cars (EERCDITC) a new performance benchmark is set. Pagani Zonda R with Mark Basseng behind the wheel lapped Nurburgring Northloop in a new record time - 6 minutes and 47 seconds.

That's faster than Ferrari 599XX - the other EERCDITC that made news recently. Clearly, for Pagani this is an extraordinary achievement. Next thing you hear will be their marketing people claiming this to be the new absolute Nordschleife record. After all, Pagani's next supercar, the "c9" is due this year and they just have to make headlines somehow.

No one should care if it\'s street legal, this is one of the greatest cars ever made. But it\'s really sad that the true FIA GT1 class no longer exists. With ancient technology, they were lighter and nearly as powerful. Zonda has no reason to make one, as awesome as it would be.

BIG NEWS for this car!

Pagani took their insane Zonda R back to Nordshleife to try and take a few seconds off their time. The result? An astonishing 6.27!

Simply amazing. I don\'t care if it isn\'t street legal.

Well, at the time of 599XX doing the lap record on nordshleife I said curiously what could happen if they strip zonda and let it on track? Saying that I was hoping for Pagani to actually do that and here we are. Good time, and finally someone threw that silly Radical out:) Although the fact is that serious road cars in attempt to beat the lap record are the ones with proper interior, heating system at least and more than just metal plate on the central console
