The tragic story of the N°41

The car in question is the Pagani Zonda S Roadster chassis * 41 *, built in 2004 which left the factory colored yellow with black interior and yellow stitching and went to his first owner in Singapore.

During years the car has changed its look several times, from yellow to a matte pink body with dark rims and swarosky badges.

Then in 2011 the car was sold by a famous auction in UK where it was repainted again in matte red.

After has been sold, the new owner changed the look in a black colour with Tricolore stripes, and then nothingness...

The driver was wealthy property developer William Baranos. Upon impact, the driver wasn't wearing a seatbelt, he was ejected and his body was found 10 foot from the car. The door was ripped from the car. Is believed to have been driving at high speed in a 30mph zone when he lost control of the Pagani Zonda. The front end of the car was torn off when it hit a metal fence running along the perimeter of a building supplies depot. A passenger in his 20s, believed to be a friend of the family, walked away from the wreckage, on a main road in Watford, with minor injuries. Residents described hearing revving, followed by a screech then a ‘massive bang’ when the accident happened at around 6pm.

We don't know if the car could be rebuilt or if it will be destroyed but at the moment our thoughts go to his family.

R.I.P., Mr. Baranos.
