Carbon Fiber Calamity: $1.2 million Pagani Zonda F Destroyed in 200-mph Crash

From MotorTrend.com.......

A 28-year-old German man driving a 2007 Pagani Zonda Roadster F in an apparent illegal street race crashed while travelling at a reported 198.8 mph on Italy’s A10 Autostrada. Miraculously, he and his 21-year-old Lithuanian passenger crawled from the mangled mess of aluminum, carbon fiber, and titanium unhurt.

According to multiple Italian reports citing crash experts and law enforcement, the Monaco-registered 650-horsepower drop-top was racing an unidentified Mercedes-Benz near Sportorno on the northwestern coast of Italy when the driver lost control and hit a guardrail. The hand-built super exotic then overturned, collided with the Benz, and finally spun to a stop. Of course, police immediately revoked the driver’s license.

This isn’t the first time the young unidentified German has been in trouble with the Italian police. Rumor has it, he was fined a hefty sum in April 2010 for illegally racing a Lamborghini Gallardo near the same stretch of highway.

Luckily for him and his friend, Pagani integrates a carbon-fiber passenger tub for rigidity, lightness, and safety. This time around, the advanced racing-derived safety measure worked as intended. Only 25 examples of the Zonda Roadster F were ever built. Chalk one off the list.
