The Cinque was developed after Pagani's Hong Kong dealership reported demands for a road-going version of the Zonda R. "Cinque" means "five" in Italian and is a reference to its production number.
It has a wide black stripe following along its carbon-titanium fibre body lengthwise and a parallel red stripe along the centre of the body.
Need for Speed: World
The Cinque was made available in Need for Speed: World on August 24th, 2012, and appears as an A class vehicle.
The handling traits of the Cinque were generally not obstructing its competitiveness in races. The steering was similar to that of the Pagani Zonda F, meaning it was prone to understeer when attempting to enter a corner at a sharp angle.
In the field of acceleration, the Cinque was slighly more effective than the Zonda F and featured with a powerful nitrous boost too. Top speed is 220 mph (354 km/h).
Since September 5th, 2012, the Cinque received a significant improvement in handling. Its stiffness was completely eliminated, as it is capable of performing quick manoeuvres in the fashion of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. However, it also has a small chance of fishtailing. The acceleration of the Cinque was also increased, making it the fastest accelerating vehicle in the game.
