Yeah, that's an accident. I've updated the article to be in line with previous Zondas at around 1.5g. It must be more, but I can't find a good source for the exact value. Thanks for pointing that out!
Sorry, but who ever wrote this article must have no clue what he/she is saying to think that a Zonda Revolution has only 0.8 cornering force. Even a honda civic has 0.8 cornering force. The specs are that the Zonda has a Drag reduction system wing that can be opened to gain higher straight lined speed, which is automatically deactivated when you pump the brakes or that the lateral g's exceed 0.8g, similar to the DTM race cars (which do that at 2.0g). The car itself can easily handle more g's than an Agera R just be the obvious huge wing and downforce elements.
