Moving a step beyond the F, the Pagani Zonda R was actually track-ready when it debuted in 2007, with an even more powerful Mercedes V12 on board, if you can believe it. It was created with a longer wheelbase at a client's request -- and you know that wasn't cheap. The body is the lightest it's been, in carbon and titanium, with a direct throttle mechanism that shifts (magnesium) gears in 20 milliseconds. And this time, with paddles, not a stick.

Track-ready usually means configurable, and the Pagani Zonda R is no different. It has adjustable-on-the-fly ABS and traction control systems, and the suspension and wing can be adjusted in the pits. The seats are FIA-compliant with 5-point racing harnesses with a minimalist, but not stripped, interior. Only 15 of these boy-racers-gone-bad were ever made.
