In 1995, 3 years into the development of the Zonda, Pagani (39) was surfing with close friends when a F50 was parked on the jetty and began to struggle to stay above surface. As his friends rushed to help, Pagani held out an arm in front of them, stopping them, and was reported saying by Juan Manuel Fangio (Pagani's idol),"The waves have claimed her. Let her fight for her own life". And proceeded to watch her sink until her central carbon tub disappeared beneath the waves, lifeless. He was later spotted outside the Ferrari factory, Maranello, making drowning gestures and thanking Ferrari for their F50's sacrifice to the great ocean.
