Nico Rosberg won the F1 championship in 2016 and subsequently retired from the sport, but that doesn’t mean his love of cars has wanted. He recently visited Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello and was invited to drive the open-top, single-seat Monza SP1 supercar around the automaker’s famous Fiorano test track. Let’s just say that the 6.5L V12 engine producing 809 horsepower did not disappoint. Read more for the video and additional information.
At $1.9-million, the Monza SP1 features a carbon fiber body, while the entire interior is trimmed in the same material with a natural finish to enhance the sporty impact of the design. Weight reduction and the ‘barchetta’ configuration guarantee unique vehicle dynamics, thus resulting in a perfectly balanced vehicle with no body roll whatsoever for pure, uncompromising sports-car handling.

I really enjoyed visiting the Ferrari and Scuderia Ferrari Museum with all the history: Epic Ferrari classic cars, impressive Ferrari F1 cars, and the fastest and most powerful Ferrari Hypercars. In between, I visited the Ferrari manufacturing line – such an amazing experience to see the 488 Pistas right from the production line! Afterward, I went to Fiorano – the Ferrari test track – for some incredible hot laps in the 1 of 160 Limited Edition Ferrari Monza SP1,” said Nico.
