SL73 AMG

How many were made? Is this the biggest engine AMG have made to date? Is the 7.3 a modified version of another, like how the 55 AMG engines were just modified 500 engines?

I'm pretty sure this is the biggest AMG has put in a production car. Don't they use the 7.3 AMG engine on the Pagani Zonda. Brabus did a 7.3 as well and put it in their own version of the SL 73 (R 129), as well as the S 73 (W140)

Good point on the Zonda. I always knew the Zonda had a Mercedes 7.3, but never made the connection between the two. That would be amazing if the same engine you got in an older roadster, so also got in a new supercar.

yea, that would be really cool. And then you could race the 2 against each other, although the Zonda would win, because it is lighter. Still, who doesn't want an SL 73 AMG?

Re: SL73 AMG

Don't make me drive all the way to SoCal to show you that the 220 is indeed good.

Anyway, I read on Wikipedia that the Zonda engine is actually a modified one from the R230 SL65, not the SL73. Interesting.

Go for it. It can't touch the W140.

That is interesting that the Zonda's engine is off an R203's engine. Why didn't they just use the 7.3, and just tune it up a little bit?

Probably because the 6.0L V12 is still a production engine, whereas the 7.3 is not anymore.

42 SL73 AMG cars were built from 1999-2001.

The SL73 AMG engine (M120.990) is an AMG-modified version of the 6,0L V12 of the SL600 (M120.983).


The 7,3 Litre V12 AMG engine is still used (in modified form with 555-650hp - changed intake/exhaust) in the Pagani Zonda S 7.3, Zonda Roadster, Zonda F, Zonda F Roadster and Zonda F Clubsport cars. The new coming Zonda R will use another engine because the 7.3 engines are not available in big numbers anymore.
