These are the latest pictures from the Geneva Motorshow. It has been built to commend the 50th anniversary of the Italian ‘Frecce Tricolori’ which is the equivalent to the UK Red Arrows.
The Zonda Tricolore is based on the Zonda Cinque coupe, using the same special carbonfibre weaved with titanium wire for the construction of its tub, and an automated paddle-shift gearbox. The exterior of the Tricolore is in blue laquer coating which looked as good as the blue carbon on the veyron.
The Tricolore differs from the Zonda Cinque by not having the air-intake snorkel fitted to feed the engine with air – instead there’s a small, vertical fin on top of the engine cover, presumably to help link the looks of the Zonda Tricolore to the jet used by the Frecce Tricolori team.
There are also unique LED running lights at the front, shaped to look like the tail fin of a plane and ‘Frecce Tricori’ mimicking strips, beginning either side of the nose of the car and then running the full the length of the car.
It is priced at 1.3M Euros, making it £1,360,000 not sure if it includes 12 months road tax.
