Pagani Zonda Tricolore

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Frecce Tricolori (the Italian Red Arrows), Pagani created the special edition Zonda Tricolore. Based on the already limited Zonda Cinque, the titanium-infused carbon-fibre of the bodyshell is left bare, protected by a blue-tinted clear lacquer. The car features a few unique touches to tie it into the whole aviation theme: a vertical fin atop the engine cover (to replace the usual snorkel), LED lights on the nose that echo in shape the tailfin of a Frecce Tricolori plane, and matching Italian stripes.
Gimmicky? Perhaps. But it's every bit as staggering as the Cinque, with a little more exclusivity thrown in. Which it should have, since it costs £1,340,000.
