Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A local foehn wind occurring at the eastern base of the Andes, in the vicinity of San Juan, Argentine Republic. It is a hot dry west wind blowing down from the Cordillera, and carrying clouds of dust and fine sand. It may occur at any season, but is especially frequent during July and August (midwinter), when its high temperature and parching effects are especially noticeable. The name is also applied to a hot dry north wind occurring on the Argentine plains during the summer, and reported especially from the vicinity of Mendoza. This is essentially a desert wind, charged with sand, and oppressive and suffocating in its effects.
“The Pagani Zonda is part of an elite class of super exotics.”
“Unlike other industries that have no qualms about outsourcing components — Pagani's outrageous, highly coveted Zonda, for example, uses a Mercedes engine and no one complains — the watch industry is obsessed with what it calls "manufacture" status.”
“The owner was driving the car back from a track event when an out of control truck forced the Zonda into a row of parked cars.”
“The Pagani Zonda can reach speeds of close to 200 MPH”
“Think of what went into the Ferrari Enzo, the Pagani Zonda, or the first Knife's Edge Koenigsegg; Hours of engineering brilliance followed by production discipline.”
“Because the car has untouchable performance capabilities--1,180 horsepower and a top speed of 273 mph--we felt we could exclude some other terrific supercars built with an emphasis on raw speed, such as DaimlerChrysler's Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, General Motors' Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Lamborghini's cars, Dodge's Viper, Pagani's Zonda, Ferrari's FXX, Mosler's MT 900S and others.”
“This expensive new model has helped the Zonda remain in second place on our list, where it ended up last year.”
“For example, Italian automaker Pagani makes several different editions of its Zonda supercar, but we only included the most expensive one--the $667,000 Clubsport version of the Zonda Roadster F C12S 7.3.”
“Pagani recommends all of its global dealers offer the Zonda for the same base price.”
“The pagani Huayra, the 700bhp successor to the Zonda, has been premiered at the Geneva Motor Show.”
