The Russian owner of a rare supercar says it will be rebuilt to “brand new” condition after a dramatic road crash.
Oleg Egorov, a Moscow advertising executive and supercar tuner, said his incredibly rare Pagani would be back on the road in five to six months.
The Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta was taking part in a supercar club event in Croatia when its driver lost control and collided with a Ford Fiesta at the weekend.
The V12-powered roadster is one of three examples created by the Italian marque’s Uno-di-Uno (one of one) department. Only two were sold to the public, and company founder Horacio Pagani retained the third as his personal vehicle.
The “hypercar” is said to be worth $17 million ($25 million), though the extreme rarity of the car makes it difficult to pin down an exact value.
Instagram pages run by supercar enthusiasts captured photos and videos of the collision.
Astopcars released footage of the accident, which resulted in extraordinary damage to the car’s carbon fiber bodywork and exotic underpinnings.
Video shown by fellow enthusiast the.french.spotter showed the Pagani losing traction on a narrow street before colliding sideways with an oncoming Ford.
Neither party appears to have been injured in the accident.
