Lewis Hamilton is parting with his Pagani Zonda. As the initials already indicate, the 760 LH is a one-off – now it has to go for ethical reasons.
Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton is likely to have his financial affairs dry. Presumably, it could easily entertain any Pagani ever built. But the fact is that he actually sold his copy, the one-off Zonda 760 LH. The Mercedes driver is said to have received ten million euros for the exclusive sports car. With an investment of 1.4 million euros, not a bad cut – but again: money is of course not the problem here.
s the Italian magazine Quattroruote wants to know, Hamilton is said to have sold the Pagani for ethical reasons. The Briton wants to make his fleet greener and equip it with at least hybrid cars – better still with purely electric vehicles. How fortunate that the 1,054 hp AMG One – if it is ever finished – houses three electric motors in addition to its 1.6-liter V6. Hamilton has had that on the list for a long time.
The Zonda 760 that Hamilton has now sold is part of a limited mini series of four coupes and a roadster. The number reveals: Here the 7.3-liter V12 from AMG delivers 760 hp. The purple sweeper shoots up to 100 km/h in less than three seconds and further up to a maximum of 350 km/h. However, does the buyer know that he has brought an accident car into the garage with the unique car from a prominent previous owner? In 2015, while driving home from a party in Monaco, Hamilton had crashed his Zonda into a stationary car . Well, in the end it doesn’t seem to have led to a loss in value.
