Mercedes F1 driver Sir Lewis Hamilton reportedly sold his one-off Pagani Zonda 760LH for an undisclosed.
It comes a week after losing to Max Verstappen in controversial circumstances at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
While it was still in his custody, Hamilton said the Zonda was “terrible to drive,” – “handling-wise.
But he noted that the Pagani Zonda was the “best-sounding car” in his collection.
Seven-time Formula Champion Sir Lewis Hamilton has reportedly sold his one-off purple-colored Pagani Zonda 760LH, just seven years after the British-born driver took delivery of the Hypercar.
According to thezondaregistry on Instagram, the AMG-powered V-12 supercar, which he paid about $1.4 million to own back in 2014, was sold to a new owner in the United Kingdom. The report also noted that the Zonda covered less than 1,000 kilometers (ca. 621 miles) since it was built.
Lewis Hamilton’s 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.
Hamilton has been spotted driving it on numerous occasions, but the last time was during his three-week F1 vacation in August when he was seen cruising the rare Hypercar in Monaco.
While the Hypercar was still in his custody, Hamilton said the Zonda was “terrible to drive,” asserting that “handling-wise, it’s the worst” in his fleet, but noted that the Zonda was the “best-sounding car” in his collection.
The news of the sale comes just a week after the 36-year old Mercedes-AMG driver’s lose to 2021 Formula One World Champion Max Verstappen in controversial circumstances at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
