Meet your Star Wars-loving, Ferrari-owning hero.
Fewer than 500 examples of the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are being built and all have been spoken for. Based on the Ferrari 812 Superfast architecture, both are powered by a variant of the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12, now tuned to produce 799 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque. They are among the most powerful Ferrari V12 road cars of all time. While the SP1 is a single-seater, the SP2 has two seats. Both feature carbon fiber bodywork to contribute towards their lightweight ethos. The SP2, for example, weighs 3,351 pounds – just 45 pounds heavier than the SP1.
And now one SP2 owner is actually doing what all SP2 (and SP1) owners ought to be doing: actually driving those cars. And we're not talking about some brief and slow cruise around the block.
No, this guy drifted his SP2 on an icy road somewhere Dolomites mountain range in northeastern Italy. Not only did he film his exploits and post them to his very appropriately named Instagram account, PowerslideLover, but he also expressed his inner dark side of the Force behind the wheel by dressing as a Stormtrooper. He even wrote the following with the video: "The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural."
Obviously these icy road conditions are no place to attempt the Monza SP2's full capabilities. Ferrari claims it can go from 0-62 mph in only 2.9 seconds, to 124 mph in 7.9 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph.
Still, the SP2 easily handles the road conditions, but that's because its driver clearly knows what he's doing. While crashing into a snowbank or a chunk of mountain is certainly possible, this guy tackles winter like a boss. Whoever said rear-wheel-drive sports cars can't handle the wintry weather? This owner proves them all wrong.
