For a jaw dropping ₦1.99 billion, the one-off Pagani Zonda was recently bought at the Silverstone Auction event held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. See pictures!

Who wouldn’t pay that much for the only Pagani Zonda Riviera model on the planet? After all, if you are rich enough to cash in on such stunning and rare beauty. Just recently at the Silverstone Auction at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this model was bought for a whopping $5.5 million (₦1.99b).


The fact that this Zonda Riviera is the only one available in the world, making it extremely valuable and rare

The Zonda Riviera started as Zonda F but was later taken back to the production line to re-emerge as the newest model on the Pagani’s long-running 760 series. It offers some modified features such as custom roof scoop, all-new carbon fiber body panels, stylish blue trimmings, carbon fiber canards and a towering carbon fiber rear wing.

The super expensive one-off model comes equipped with a V12 naturally-aspirated 7.3-liter engine with a remarkable generative output of 750 horsepower. Complementarily, the upgrades on the V12 engine offer a custom exhaust system that promises a very loud screaming sound. The ride had less than 559 miles range under the belt before it was sold off.

According to report reaching us on Naijauto, this car was enlisted to be sold by the VIP Motors UAE in Dubai. Looks like it wasn’t sold after all. It was later acquired by a Saudi prince after it was listed for sale from Seven Car Lounge in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Prince reportedly made minimum of one trip with this one-off model to London.


Its beauty doesn't end with the outside look but offers a stunning and comfy interior design

We also learnt that another rare one-off Zonda known as ‘Aether’ was confirmed for an auction on 30 November this year. The announcement was made back in August, which made it the very first time a Pagani Zonda will be auctioned off in 7 years. Surprisingly, the Pagani Zonda Riviera has beaten this record by just one week. We are very much looking forward to how much Aether will cost when it is finally auctioned.
