T​he Pagani Zonda Aether Roadster was revealed to the world last year at the Pagani Raduno event. This one-off beauty of a car was ordered by a customer that is also well-known for their order of the one-off order of a Ferrari SP38 Deborah. Yep, this guy is a fan of rare cars...

T​he Ferrari SP38 was a variation of the Ferrari 488, which was inspired by the body's of the F40 and 308. Not much was known about the Ferrari, but what I can show you is the gorgeous design of it!

I​mage: Ferrari.

M​oving back to the Zonda; we are fortunate to know a bit more information about this matte-black, wallet bullying monster. For starters, it has a 7.3L AMG V12 engine that can output 749 horsepower at 8,000 RPM and a 6-speed manual gearbox.

T​he Zonda Aether is described as 'ultra-desirable' due to the fact that new hybrid supercars are making people miss the classic driving experience. During the same auction, Michael Schumacher's Ferrari F2002 Formula One car was sold for $6.6m, $200,000 less than the Zonda Aether! To put this in perspective, a Formula One car that was driven by the most successful driver in the histroy of the sport sold for less than a one-off Pagani Zonda. That is mental.

$​6.8m is equivelent to £5.25m, €6.13m, or $9CAD. This is the equivalent to nearly 3 Bugatti Chirons, 43 Lamborghini Huracans, or 170 Tesla CyberTrucks! Do you think it is worth it? Let me know in the comments below.

  • Of course it's not with that price. It's the idea of the auction nature of this that pushes up the price astronomically

  • I looked up the results today. This was the most expensive of all lots!

  • $1,500,000 at most, I don’t think it’s worth nearly 5 times as much just because it’s a Zonda special edition, and with not really any new performance parts

  • Nah, not worth it to me, Horacio just keeps banking in on the exclusivity of his cars without actually doing anything new
