Rudolph the red nose reindeer would be jealous of the Ferrari Monza SP2, a stunning machine that seems unstoppable on icy roads.
The fact that it has no roof to protect that very expensive interior from nature’s elements, or friends, in this case – you’ll see what we’re talking about in one of the videos shared below, didn’t stop the owner of this limited production special from Maranello from having a lot of fun in Italy’s Giau Pass.
With a gentle push of the pedal and steady hands, Instagrammer PowerslideLover put on a stunning show in the Dolomites, unleashing a fraction of the jaw-dropping power available from the V12 engine, keeping it sideways for a few precious moments, all to the delight of those present, who captured the stunts on video.
Remind me, what’s special about the Ferrari Monza SP2?
Based on the same platform as the 812 Superfast, the Monza SP1 and SP2 made their public premiere at last year’s Paris Auto Show as the first two models in a series of bespoke cars Ferrari names the ‘Icona’ series.
The SP1 tips the scales 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs) dry, while adding a passenger seat in the SP2 bumps the weight by 20 kg (44 lbs). Both of them feature a ton (or so to speak) of carbon fiber in their construction and don’t come with a traditional windshield or roof.
If you’re brave enough, you could achieve the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds, identical to the 812 Superfast, and max out at a little over 300 km/h (186 mph). Powering them is a sonorous 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that produces 810 PS (799 hp / 596 kW) and 719 Nm (530 lb-ft) of torque.
Ferrari is building 499 units and all of them have been spoken for, despite a starting price of almost $2 million.
