Mansory Has Tried To Improve The Ferrari Monza SP2

Tuning / 12 Comments

This was a brave move.

Mansory says this Ferrari Monza SP2 (the SP1 is the single-seater) is meant to offer a new "individualization strategy" it calls 'Mansory Bespoke.' Really, this is a justification to make questionable design choices with a seven-figure hypercar.

The idea here is to improve upon the design, wheels, performance, and interior in a way a customer prefers. Frankly, this Monza SP2 is a pretty good example of it. It's also one of the more subtle cars Mansory has ever built. It's probably best to ignore the lipstick tubes posing as exhaust pipes, though.

The Monza's 6.5-liter V12 gets a new tune, air intake, and exhaust system which equates to 830 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque. That lovely Ferrari noise exits from those new exhaust tips, which are sure to be more than controversial. There is also a retuned suspension and Mansory's YT.5 Air wheels, which you might recognize from the brand's Ferrari F8XX.

Stylistically, this is almost something we could see Ferrari doing from the factory. A new front lip and new diffuser are both carbon, as are the mirrors. The double stripe across the hood looks especially "Ferrari", and Mansory also took Ferrari's famous Rosso Corsa red and spread it around a bit, adding it to the interior and using it as an accent to all of the carbon on the car.

Once again, things stay relatively restrained on the inside, despite what you may or may not think of the mismatched seats. Mansory says it's to allude to the idea of asymmetry. The Monza was offered as either a single- or two-seat car if you remember.

Like the production car, a number of things on this Monza are asymmetrical, like the roll hoop cowling and the hood stripe. That includes the offset mirror in the interior. The idea is sound, even if the colors are way too much for most Ferrari fans to handle. The rest of the insides stay almost factory fresh, right down to the stitching and that should keep the Tifosi happy.

Some of you may also remember just how valuable and rare the Monza is. In all, only 499 total examples of both the SP1 and SP2 were made. The price is somewhere between "if you have to ask" and $2 million. Frankly, there's not much to improve on at this rate. All Mansory is doing is adding more power to a car that doesn't need it (799 hp and 530 lb-ft as standard) and changing around some styling, which was perfect to start with. The Monza is the Monza, Mansory or not.
