It's not often that you'll find a Pagani Zonda and a Pagani Huayra in the same place, at the same time - much less on a racetrack. Pagani makes incredibly rare supercars. But Peter Read owns both a 2005 Zonda Roadster and a new Huayra, so he decided to bring them to Goodwood Circuit for a little comparison test. While the wet weather didn't allow too much wide open throttle, it's still an interesting comparison of two very different beasts.

Here are the particulars: the Zonda is packing a naturally aspirated 7.3-liter Mercedes-AMG V12 with 555 horsepower, while the Huayra gets a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 - also a Mercedes-AMG unit - with 730 hp. The Zonda's dry weight is 2,821 pounds, and the Huayra weighs in at 2,976 pounds empty. The Zonda has a six-speed manual transmission, the Huayra is equipped with a seven-speed sequential gearbox.
