Pagani Zonda S 7.3 (2001 - 2004)

It was again in the Geneva Motor show (Switzerland) that Pagani introduced in 2002 the second iteration of the Zonda S.

In the 7.3, cosmetic changes are minor and focus on the back, with a spoiler and cooling ducts introduced in the S being lightly modified and the cylinder that contained the C12 emblem disappears leaving just the letters.

The bigger changes gather under the carbon fiber body, in the V12 that moves this supercar. It increases its capacity again until 7.3 liters.
Max power and torque remain unchanged but the engine has a much more meaty and plethoric curve that extends 500 rpm up until 7000.

In 2002, the German magazine Sport Auto took a unit to the German track of Nürburgring Nordschleife, beating the record for road legal cars with a time of 7:44.

17 examples were made during the three years of it production, one of them serving as Horacio's personal drive.
