One year after the exciting debut of the Zonda C12, Pagani Automobili was able to present the Zonda S, which brought out a massive seven-liter engine. The car, in addition to the enhanced thruster, presented a wide range of technical improvements.
Inspired by the good fortune that invested the Zonda C12, Pagani spent the next two years trying to consolidate the project and starting, in the meantime, a feverish work of promotion of the atelier.
The goal was to reassure suppliers and customers about the concreteness of what was likely to be compared to the adventure of many other prototype manufacturers, which were good at creating an exotic car, but then unable to start a production.
By the end of 2001 he had been toying with the possibility of making the next version of the Zonda: the Roadster.
