Pagani didn’t mess with a successful formula with the release of a Zonda Cinque Roadster, retaining all of the distinctive Zonda elements you know and love (such as the immense, mid-mounted Mercedes-Benz/AMG V12) and improving them—and then lopping off the top. The simplest way to think about the Cinque is to consider it a road version of the race-only Zonda R that you can cruise down the boulevard in, if you’d like. Although it’s street legal, it’d be unfortunate to mar the lower carbon fiber bodywork on a speedbump, because even with suspension that can lift up the nose in just such a circumstance the Cinque is still ludicrously low. If you do snag the front spoiler, good luck finding a spare: in case the name of this Pagani didn’t tip you off, only five Cinques will be made, and they’re each eye-wateringly expensive. Then again, if you can afford one, the sheer joy of unleashing 678 thundering horses from just behind your head while enjoying open-air cruising surely means you’d overlook such trifling drawbacks of ownership. As if this alone doesn’t give a Cinque owner bragging rights, consider this: the Cinque is the first automotive application of a new carbon fiber-titanium composite, giving the bare material a slightly different look as the titanium strands are visible in the weave. As much an engineering masterpiece as a stunning performer, this rare Zonda is surely one of the most unique supercars ever produced.
The Pagani Zonda Cinque's powerplant is a Mercedes-AMG 7.3L V12, codenamed M120. It produces 678 hp (506 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 575 ft·lb (780 N·m) at 4,000 rpm. The Zonda Cinque Roadster and its coupe form have identical specifications aside from a slight weight difference.
The Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster, as expected of a Pagani car, features excellent handling and braking, especially thanks to its lightweight body and aerodynamic modifications, including a rear wing and front bumper canards. All of these work together to allow the Cinque to corner effectively. The Cinque's main downfall, on the other hand, is its low top speed; it can only hit 207 mph (333 km/h) at best. The Cinque's acceleration is comparable to most high-end supercars, hitting 60 mph in 3.28 seconds and 100 mph in 6.4 seconds, owing to its use of tight gearing, which also explains its low top speed. Overall, the Zonda Cinque Roadster is a handling/braking-focused car best suited for medium-length tracks that lack a lot of long straights yet also feature some difficult turns.
