Borned in 1989, the car was Designed by none other than Horacio Pagani, creator of the iconic Zonda. The 25th Anniversary edition features bespoke wheel arch extensions, extended air intake ducts and a new rear engine cover design, as well as increased torque and performance with a top speed of 185 mph.
