Pagani Zonda F 2005 1:18 by Almost Real
Supercar aficionados know the Pagani story even without a million dollar plus modification of your Pagani Zonda. The Italian supercar auto maker’s business model is one of a kind, just like their cars. Owners of a Zonda (140 units total) keep their cars relevant and the business alive through “one off” modifications on existing chassis. The ancient phrase “new wine in old wine skins” applies. The manufacture of only 2 models in 20 years means timely (and stunning!) upgrades. The 2005 Zonda F (a tribute to Juan Manuel Fangio, the Formula One World Championship Winner) was a dramatically transitional Zonda. A natural carbon fiber bodywork was a first as was the Mercedes-sourced 7.3-liter V-12 offered in two iterations: a 602 hp and the further enhanced 650 hp powerplant. Luxury appointments within the cabin also became a hallmark of its unique character.
Almost Real’s new sub-brand (AR+) is being launched with the release of the Pagani Zonda in 1:18 scale capturing the “one off” history and glory of Pagani’s supercars. Exquisite beyond description Almost Real mirrors the quad tailpipes, the triple stacked taillights and the low laying spoiler. Lifting the rear bonnet reveals the monstrous V-12 in exacting detail. Beneath the bubble-top a luxury-car like interior draws one into the cockpit. A flat-bottom steering wheel, hand break, and gear shift are adorned with wood inserts. Forged aluminum/magnesium 20-inch alloy wheels (rear) and 19-inch (front) burst with class and stability on the original finds 1:18 scale beauty. The undercarriage of your Zonda makes visible the double A-arm four-wheel independent suspension. A Pagani emblem finds its home on the floor ahead of the front seats and will adorn your collection beyond expectations. The AR+ Zonda F will not disappoint!

AR’s quality has been one of the best in my collection so far. I this model the level of detail is insane. Looking after the Cinques
What a fantastic surprise my first Almost real model was. Beautifully packaged including car cover. I am a bit disappointed no bespoke display case is at least available as an option as the model deserves one.
Stunning overall and can't wait for release of Revolution version of the Zonda.
For sure, this car will not disappoint anyone! With all the incredible details it goes beyond one's expectations. It has no plastic look, as almost the whole car has a metal body. I highly recommend this car!
