The Zonda Cinque, with "Cinque" meaning "five" in Italian, was meant to be the last model in the Zonda series, built as a Zonda R for the road. Five units were built, hence the name, for each version of the car – five coupes and five roadsters. The Zonda Cinque Roadster and its coupe form have identical specifications aside from a slight weight difference.
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.
Pagani hand crafts some of the finest super cars in the world. For those who want to let the wind blow back their hair at up to 217 mph, the Cinque Roadster is the perfect choice. Built of carbon-titanium—that’s carbon fiber weaved with titanium strands—the Cinque is lightweight and strong. Thanks to the massive intake’s location just above the cockpit, the rush of air combined with the bespoke Iconel and titanium exhaust bellows a glorious V12 chorus. Only five were built, so driving one in Forza Horizon will be the closest most will ever come to the real thing.
Differences from other road-going Zondas include the new six-speed sequential transmission with sub-100 millisecond shift times, a revised form of carbon fiber called "carbo-titanium" that incorporates titanium for increased strength and rigidity, and a suspension made of magnesium and titanium components.
External differences include revised bodywork, with a longer front splitter, new sideskirts, rear diffuser, bumper canards, flatter underside, and a roof-mounted air intake scoop, all of which enable the Zonda Cinque to record 1.45 lateral Gs under cornering and create significantly more downforce compared to previous road-going Zondas.
The 7.3 L (7,312 cc) V12 engine was updated to make 678 hp (506 kW) and 575 ft·lb (780 N·m). With a weight of 2858 lb (1296 kg) for the Zonda Cinque Roadster, this results in a power-to-weight ratio of 523 hp (390 kW) per tonne.
The Zonda Cinque is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.28 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6.4 seconds (changed to 6.2 seconds in Forza Motorsport 7), and a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h), which is actually lower than its claimed top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h), due to the tighter gearing.
