Ferrari Monza SP2 Owner Goes Snow Drifting (Video)

Enjoying the Ferrari instead of storing it in a glass case.


  • Ferrari Monza SP2’s 6.5-litre V12 produces 799 hp (596 kW, 810 PS)
  • Zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds
  • Only a few hundred built, each costing over CAD$2 million

You’d think buyers of super-expensive, highly collectable exotic cars like the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 would store them away in a vault, sealed in a plastic bag to preserve its condition and jack up its resale value. However, the owner of this Monza SP2 prefers enjoying his topless car—also called a Barchetta—in the snow than looking at it in his garage.

A special unique Ferrari: the SP38

An Instagram user by the name of PowerslideLover has published a few short videos of the Ferrari slip-sliding on snowy European roads, and it looks like the driver is having a ball.

We can just imagine how much mist and slush ended up flying into the cockpit, but then again, someone can be hired to clean it all up with a box of Q-tips, right?

The Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are both equipped with a naturally aspirated, 6.5-litre V12 engine that develops 799 horsepower (596 kW, 810 PS) at a sky-high 8,500 rpm (redline is 8,900) along with 530 pound-feet of torque at 7,000 rpm. With a dry weight of 1,520 kg (3,350 lbs.), the cars are said to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h 2.9 seconds, from 0 to 200 km/h in 7.9 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 300 km/h.

These two Icona series models are part of a new line of Ferrari vehicles that pays tribute to past models and represents the ultimate collectible cars for the brand’s loyal customers. They are similar in concept, but boast styling distinctions. The SP1 has only one seat, while the SP2 has two, and neither one has a roof or windshield.

Since producing the Monza SP1 and SP2 cars, Ferrari has released many new models such as the F8 Spider, the 812 GTS, the SF90 Stradale and the Roma. Within the next few months, it will also reveal its first SUV, the Ferrari Purosangue.
