Gordon Ramsay's Ferrari Monza SP2 Looks Delicious
17 October 2019 - motor1
Good thing the roofless ride is inside because it's raining outside.
When not cooking meals or screaming at people on TV, Gordon Ramsey is apparently a Ferrari fan. This video offers a look at all of the details of his Monza SP2. Ramsay doesn't appear in the video but plenty of other supercars do.
Ramsay opts for an elegant paint scheme of a black body with a horizontal red stripe across the hood and a matching shade for the driver's nacelle. With no roof, the red leather seats contribute to the classy look. The wheels have a gunmetal finish and five, propeller-shaped spokes.
The Ferrari Monza SP2 and its single-seat sibling the SP1 share their underpinnings with the 812 Superfast but with radically different styling that takes inspiration from Ferrari's 1960s race cars. Power comes from a 6.5-liter V12 making 809 horsepower (603 kilowatts). The automaker reports the models hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.9 seconds and a top speed in excess of 186 mph (300 kph).
Without a roof or even a full windshield, the Monza SP2 isn't an ideal vehicle to drive during rainy weather, and it's sprinkling in this video. Maybe, Ramsay can get a passenger to hold an umbrella for the drive home. Ferrari fits the roadster with a Virtual Wind Shield that diverts airflow away from occupants when on the road, but this tech probably doesn't prevent getting wet during a drizzle.
Ferrari is only making a total of 499 units of the SP1 and SP2, putting Ramsay in an exclusive group of owners. At a price of around $2 million, the chef made a hefty investment to put the rare machine in his garage. It earned a spot next to his LaFerrari and LaFerrari Aperta.
