Lewis Hamilton parted with his Pagani Zonda. As the initials already indicate, the 760 LH is a one-off – now it has to go for ethical reasons.
Crap! Lewis Hamilton had counted so firmly on the world champion premium and then Verstappen simply stole the title from him in the last lap of the F1 final. Unfortunately, without the expected bonus, the immense maintenance costs for a Pagani Zonda exceed the household budget. Cash has to go in, the cart out.
Did you really believe that? Probably not. 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.,
Turning away from pure combustion engines
As 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 finished at some point - houses three electric motors in addition to its 1.6-liter V6. Hamilton has it on the list for a long time.,
The Zonda 760 that Hamilton has now sold is part of a limited mini series of four coupés 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, on his way home from a party in Monaco, Hamilton crashed into a stationary car with the Zonda . Well, in the end it doesn't seem to have led to a loss in value. You can find out what other cars Lewis Hamilton and his F1 colleagues have in the garages in our slide show at the top of the article.,
Hamilton apparently has a green conscience. According to Quattroruote, the Brit wants to get rid of the pure combustion models in his fleet and equip them with hybrids and electric cars. The Pagani Zonda 760 LH fell victim to this decision. The F1 star sold the unique piece for ten million euros.
