Only a few people in the world are lucky enough to own a Ferrari Monza SP.
Because the car is a limited edition, it’s highly sought out by collectors and enthusiasts alike.
It sits in the garage of several well-known celebrities who are known for choosing high-performance and prestigious vehicles.
The Ferarri Monza is one of the most iconic models the company has ever made.
There’s a lifesize LEGO statue of one in Denmark.
It was also the car of choice used by a 24-year-old to scam people out of millions of dollars.
This model was launched in 2018 as part of Ferrari’s Icona line, which made modern cars inspired by iconic models from the brand’s history.
The Monza was introduced in two versions: the single-seater SP1 and the SP2, which has room for a passenger.
Both versions take inspiration from barchetta-style racing cars, with a silhouette reminiscent of those popular in the 1950s.
In keeping with the Icona philosophy, the Monza combines heritage design with modern technology and enhanced performance.
Both the SP1 and SP2 have an open cockpit and don’t have a traditional windshield.
They’re built on a lightweight chassis with an emphasis on aerodynamics, resulting in the ultimate high-end driving experience.
The Monza SP series is powered by a formidable 6.5-liter V12 engine and blends raw power with precision engineering.
Both supercars produce 809 horsepower, 530 lb-ft of torque and have a top speed of 299 km/h (186 mph).
This series was produced in a limited run, with fewer than 500 leaving the factory floor.
The price at the time was around $2 million but as it’s a collector’s item, this will only increase.
Buying one is not as simple as placing an order: the Monza SP was typically offered to Ferrari’s most loyal customers first.
And some of these customers are major celebrities.
Cristiano Ronaldo was invited to customize his Monza SP2 in Italy, opting for an exclusive shade of red.
Fellow footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović also has one but his is black with red seats.
The fact that Max Verstappen chose one, too, really seals the Monza’s status as an incredible modern speedster.
One of the first customers able to get their hands on a Monza SP2 was Gordon Ramsay.
He immediately let his infant son take the wheel.
That’s one lucky baby.
