Not all Zonda's are 600bhp+, the early models started with just over 400bhp.

The C12 debuted at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show. It was powered by a model 190.3344 L 5,987 cc (365 cu in) Mercedes-Benz M120 V12 engine and could reach speeds of 206 mph (332 km/h). The engine produces 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp) at 5200 rpm and 421 lb·ft (571 N·m) at 3800 rpm.

The C12 S uses a 7,010 cc (428 cu in) AMG–tuned version of the engine producing 550 PS (400 kW; 540 hp). It can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.7 secs, to 100 mph (160 km/h) in 7.5 secs and complete the quarter mile in 11.3 secs at 131 mph (211 km/h). Lateral acceleration on the skidpad is 1.18 g (11.6 m/s²), the car is 10 kilograms (22 lb) lighter than the normal Zonda C12, it can reach a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h), and carries a price tag of US$350,000.
The C12 S features an elongated nose, flaps at the rear for improved aerodynamics, and new light clusters and exhausts. Only fifteen 7.0 L C12 S cars were produced.

Yes, like I said in my original post, I believe he was meant to talk about engine power and not displacement/engine cylinder count. Would you agree that not all Zondas are 600bhp+ ?

But when someone states 'THE SAME ENGINE AS A ZONDA ' that means 'THE SAME ENGINE ' as you would find in a Zonda , ie A V12 , not 'A SIMILAR ENGINE , BUT MISSING 4 CYLINDERS , ABOUT THE SAME POWER OUTPUT AS A MID LEVEL ZONDA '

This could go on forever , and we can split hairs all we want , but i'm sure you know where i am coming from.
