Ever wonder what it's like to be an automotive journalist? Well, for a select few, there are times when it can be (very) rewarding. See, not many journalists will have the chance to get their hands on a Pagani Zonda R. On the other hand, few are as qualified as Fifth Gear co-host Tiff Needell to justify such a pricey loan and this video stands as a testimony to that.
So, after delighting your eyes with the awesome commercial and remembering why you adore the Zonda R, take a look at Needell running the Italian supercar through its paces.
And just in case your memory fails you, we'll remind you that the supernatural howl comes from a 6.0-liter AMG V12 engine, sourced from the Mercedes Benz CLK-GTR, capable of 750 hp (559 kW) and 523 lb-ft (709 Nm) of torque.
Weighing in at just 2,358 pounds (1,070 kg), this track-ready beast catapults to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds and into our hearts with the speed of light.
