Charles Leclerc was spotted driving his newest, most rare Ferrari 812 Competizione Aperta around the Monaco Principality recently.
Charles Leclerc is the new owner of another rare Ferrari road car after the Monesgague was spotted driving an 812 Competizione Aperta.
The Ferrari driver was spotted arriving at the Casino de Monte-Carlo in his brand-new automobile, and videos and photos of the top Maranello outfit driver went viral very fast.
Priced at €650,000, this limited-edition model—of which only 599 were made—is among the priciest Ferraris on the market. Its potent 6.5-liter V12 engine produces 819 horsepower and hits revs of up to 9,500 rpm.
Leclerc’s new car stands out from the rest, however, because it has been specially customized for him. If he ever decides to sell it as a one-of-a-kind car, this will probably result in a significantly higher price tag.
Similar to the highly sought-after Ferrari 488 Pista Spider in his collection, his convertible 812 Competizione Aperta has ’16’ decals on it, representing his Formula 1 race number.
Leclerc recently posed for photos with fans while getting in and out of the car in Monaco. The car also features a matte white paint finish.
The Aperta costs more than twice as much as the 2020 model that it was initially based on, the 812 Superfast. According to Ferrari, the Aperta pays homage to the legendary history of discoveries of the Prancing Horse and adds on the distinctive features of the 812 Superfast.
Leclerc’s Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz also owns an 812 Competizione although he is reported to have chosen the coupé variant, which had a limited production run of 999 units.
