There are exclusive supercars, and then there are one-of-a-kind supercars. As exclusive as their "standard" products are, niche manufacturer Pagani has carved out another niche for itself furnishing bespoke versions to the rich and famous. But while previous editions have been ordered by the likes of Qatari sheiks, aerospace concerns and air force squadrons, the latest, it has now been revealed, was ordered by a new-money software tycoon.
The car in question is the Zonda HH, a delicious amalgamation of the best elements from several recent variants. The man in question is one David Heinemeier Hansson – hence the initials, initially thought to belong to Hugh Hefner – the man behind the Ruby on Rails web-dev platform and the 37signals software firm. 30-year-old Heinemeier Hansson lives in Chicago, but since the Zonda isn't certified for use in the United States, he reportedly bought a vacation home in Italy...just so he could drive the thing. Now that's dedication. And wealth put to good use, we'd say.
