We have already met the Zonda Tricolore, another one-off based on the Zonda F upon request of Spaniard car dealer and collector Guarnieri.
Now Pagani released a few official shots, which I managed to collect in their native resolution, and what strikes me aren't the shots themselves, but actually something present in them.
That's not a random plane either, it's one of the Italian Army acrobatic squadron, also known as Frecce Tricolori...did you get it?
Yes, this car is named after these acrobatic squadron, and indeed the last "E" of its name is painted in exactly the same way of the official symbol of the Italian Army.
Not only that, but now also the fin on the engine cover makes much more sense, even if I still think I could live without it, let alone the color of the carbon fiber, blue, like those planes.
I have no idea why Guarnieri wanted to pay such an homage to Italy or to its Army, but I won't complain. probably it has something to do with his youth, who knows...
So different car, same story, high resolution (2300 px) images after the jump, except for the last one which isn't available in high resolution. Don't. Ask. Why.
