    the SP2 makes so much more sense though, so much lost functionality in the sp1 for a measly 20kg weight saving? it's not worth it

    also from the looks of it you could easily convert it to an SP1 by removing the seat and changing the panel

    It sounds like 60-70% of orders are SP2...SP1 is more unique, but I fear it will also be less appealing to the majority of buyers

    At $1.4M plus tax and not street legal (in the US) this is purely a collector car. In which case value is dominated by build quantity making SP1 the choice by far for the purpose. I just don't see many folks flogging their Monza at their local track when you know most will likely not even get driven keeping delivery miles. A car destined to collect dust and flat spot tires I'm afraid.

    The US is 30% of SP1/2 allocations...It is not the entire world and many US owners have bought cars to keep in Europe and take to events, shows etc. I intend to drive mine as much as the weather permits and I will not be too disappointed if the SP1 is more valuable

    I have a LOTUS340R, no roof etc.....

    I made around 20,000 miles of road trips among others Ireland , Scotland etc....

    You can imagine the weather conditions I faced many times..I was diving in a waterproof motorbike suit wearing a helmet...I have to admit that it did not bother me at all,,,,maybe I even enjoyed it...

    The Alcantara seats resisted till now and there is a lot less electronic (dashboard etc)....today the car is a little bit "battered", but I got some fantastic moments....

    I can not imagine to do this with a Monza....

    I am even not talking about the Price difference (nothing to compare)but the car is not designed for it....

    I imagine leaving a sunny morning and during the drive facing bad weather...

    The place I live in the weather can change fast..

    I am driving all my cars therefore I do have some "?"...

    Do not get me wrong this car is masterpiece...I just wanted to share some thoughts with you...

    And really sorry for my bad English ;-)

    I will definitely have a tonneau cover made for foul weather and would imagine a proper weatherproof cover will come with the SP1/2, but if not I'll have one made.

    What is your plan with the Monza with regard to driving it? I know you drive your cars and their are garage queens so I am interested to hear what your plan is.

    I will use it for events in Europe, and possibly see if it can be approved for road use as a show - display car in the US or Canada (where I also own a home) because Ferrari is producing less than 500 Monza SP2 units and it meets current emissions laws in the US, which may allow it to be driven 2500 miles a year in the US. I won't attempt to do this unless someone else gets this model approved as a show - display vehicle first which makes the process sort of a cookie cutter process. I would also make sure Ferrari wouldn't object as I wouldn't want to be black listed on future Icona models.

    George330 the black with a red interior Monza in post #878 has a certain effortless beauty to it. Any thoughts on a Monza color combination you might consider???

    I have decided...it will be very special...Not saying anything yet until Ferrari approve the spec...Tailor made colour and interior.
