Lewis Hamilton makes $10m profit after selling his one-off Pagani Zonda he bought in 2014 for $1.4m.
Mercedes driver Hamilton’s Zonda now sold to an unnamed UK-based buyer is one of just five official “760” Zondas built.
But the Hypercar is the only “760” to carry the “LH” moniker – which stands for his name, Lewis Hamilton.
While it was still in Hamilton’s custody, the 36 year old said the Zonda was “terrible to drive,” – “handling-wise.
But the UK-born driver noted that the Pagani Zonda was the “best-sounding car” in his collection.
Lewis Hamilton once suffered a minor crash while driving the Pagani Zonda 760LH in Monaco in 2015.
Mercedes driver Sir Lewis Hamilton has reportedly made a profit of about $10 million after selling his one-off purple-colored Pagani Zonda 760LH for $11.3 million.
The seven-time Formula Champion originally paid about $1.4 million to own the one-off Pagani Zonda 760LH back in 2014. His one-off Zonda is one of just five official “760” Zondas built, but the only one to carry the “LH” moniker – which stands for his name, Lewis Hamilton.
Pagani Zonda 760LH In Monaco
Hamilton, who rarely drives the Pagani as well as other supercars he owns, admitted that the 760LH was “terrible to drive”. He asserted that “handling-wise, it’s the worst” in his fleet, but noted that the Zonda was the “best-sounding car” in his collection.
The 36 year old once suffered a minor crash while driving the Pagani Zonda in Monaco in 2015. The last time Hamilton was spotted behind the wheels of 760LH was during his three-week F1 vacation in August 2021.
According reports, the Pagani Zonda covered less than 1,000 kilometers (ca. 621 miles) while the the rare hypercar was still in Hamilton’s custody.
