Pagani Marks 20th Anniversary with Grand Central Takeover

By Paul Joseph

The Pagani Zonda, one of the most desirable hypercars ever made, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion the Italian carmaker came up with a truly novel idea.

In celebration of the landmark year, New York’s iconic Grand Central Terminal has become the temporary home to five eye-catching Zondas, all on display for the station’s 750,000 daily commuters and tourists to admire.

The collection includes a Zonda R, Zonda F, Zonda Cinque, Zonda HP Barchetta, and the very first Zonda production car that introduced Pagani to the world at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show.

Also part of the display is a Huayra Roadster BC that debuted earlier this year during Monterey Car Week.

“As part of Pagani’s worldwide Zonda 20th Anniversary celebrations, the Zonda Collection was always coming to America,” says Michael Staskin, CEO of Pagani Automobili America.

“When faced with the task of finding a suitable location for such a prestigious display, we performed an extensive search of the country’s most iconic venues to find one that represented the same spirit of engineering, ingenuity, and passion that went into the first 20 years of the Zonda,

“What we found was Grand Central Terminal, a globally recognised hub of transportation, iconic history, timeless design and passion in one of the world’s greatest cities, New York.”

Visitors can also learn about the history of company founder, Horacio Pagani, showcased in an exhibition called “Pagani, The Story of a Dream.”

The Zonda collection will be on display at the terminal from 1-8 November.
