The Pagani Zonda Is “Terrible” To Drive, Says Lewis Hamilton

Four-time Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton says his Mercedes-engined Pagani Zonda 760 LH is the worst-handling car he owns.

Speaking about his modestly-sized collection of cars in an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper, the Hockenheim Grand Prix winner didn’t exactly give the one-off car the best review. He said:

“The Zonda is terrible to drive! It’s the best-sounding car I own, but handling-wise it’s the worst.”

Love conquers all. Giving all the glory to God🙏🏾

Well, that’s pretty definitive. Of the 15 cars he owns, and splits between garages in Monaco and Los Angeles, about half are ‘special.’ They include three Ferraris: a 599 SA Aperta, a red LaFerrari and a white LaFerrari Aperta.

The LaFerrari Aperta was recently seen being removed by a tow truck from outside a Malibu restaurant, with paparazzi perpetuating the idea that it had been towed for parking violations. That wasn’t the case, though. The truth is far stranger, as he explains:

“In LA, I’ve got a tow truck and a handyman. If I think I’ve had my excitement quota for the day I’ll ring him up and he’ll collect it from wherever I am.”

Yep, that’s right: to keep the mileage on his beloved cars down, Hamilton will drive to wherever he wants and then call a man to come and remove it via truck. We have so many conflicting emotions right now.

The all-time pole position record-holder also owns a few American cars, like a pair of original Shelby Cobra 427s. The dream, though, is to end up with a Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. He told the Sunday Times:

“That’s the dream car, like the one in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. When I retire, that’s what I want to drive.”




Horacio Pagani: “I’m never selling that douchebag a car ever again.”

I mean Hamilton knows nothing about cars

AND THAT DOESN’T COME FROM ME. He said he loves Mercedes as a team, because he doesn’t have to learn anything about suspension, how the engines work…

How can we trust him with a road car? I mean yeah I bet it handles worse than a LaFerrari but dissing the car is just dumb IMO, especially after you got a one off from the company

Sure maybe he dosen’t know about the mechanical stuff . But i would trust a 4 time f1 world champion about the handling of a car more than any journalist. .

So what if it’s a one off? its a product, one that he paid for, it’s his right to be disappointed with it if thats his opinion lol

This has got to be the dumbest comment I’ve ever read. Just because he’s not an expert on cars does not mean he cannot critique them. And just because he got a one off car means he cannot criticize that car? Please go get your head checked.

“worst handling car” probably because it sits on a tow truck all day and doesnt properly get driven.

Maaaaaateeee he literally says he drives it till he has his ‘excitement quota’ . Of all people i would think a 4 time f1 world champion would know how to ‘properly’ drive a car .

He owns a GT500 which I highly highly highly doubt handles better than a zonda. Just sayin

Perhaps he’s having more fun with his 67 Shelby than with his Zonda?

Wow, towing his cars to keep mileage down. Haven’t heard of that one before! But if what Andrew Jamieson says is true, this might be pretty brilliant after all.

He gets them towed when he has too much to drink. ‘Excitement quota’

Sure, in comparison to the cars he owns and his day-time job, it might not be the best car handling, but I wonder what he’ll say if he ever gets to drive a Mk.1 Twingo with stiff suspension and bucketseats for a month, and then gets into a Zonda.
