In the glittering streets of Monaco, F1 sensation Charles Leclerc recently turned heads as he pulled up outside the iconic Casino de Monte-Carlo in his latest automotive splendour – the Ferrari 812 Competizione Aperta.
It's also adorned with '16' decals, paying homage to his Formula 1 race number. The matte white finish only adds to its allure.
Power befitting of an F1 star
Beneath the hood lies a powerhouse befitting a Formula 1 driver – the 6.5-litre V12 engine of the 812 Competizione Aperta roars to life with an astounding 819bhp and a breathtaking redline of 9,500rpm.
The convertible beauty is more than just a machine; it's an automotive ode to Ferrari's storied tradition, taking the exceptional features of the 812 Superfast to unprecedented heights.
Leclerc's garage isn't the only one boasting the presence of the 812 Competizione. His Ferrari team-mate, Carlos Sainz, also revels in the glory of this high-performance masterpiece, opting for the coupé version from the limited production run of 999 units.
The streets of Monte-Carlo is well-used to seeing incredible motors, but it's fair to say Leclerc's latest addition to his impressive supercar stable has certainly stolen the spotlight.
