When in Monaco, do as the young, talented, and excessively wealthy do. And we're not talking about crowding your teammate in a passing area and getting a cut tire as a result—we mean to say, get yourself a very purple Zonda. That's Lewis Hamilton's strategy, and you can't fault his selection even if you question its hue. It's exceedingly purple.
The manual-transmission Zonda 760RS is, essentially, the ruthlessly focused Zonda R made barely legal for road use. It extracts 750 hp from the Mercedes-AMG V12, and unlike most of the current crop of hyper cars, Hamilton rows his own gears. Aesthetics aside, the guy can drive.
He can also ride. His new Ducati Monster is not nearly as garish—yet.
In case you haven't gathered, Lewis Hamilton's Twitter feed is a terrifying and bewildering place—a little like Jaden Smith's Twitter feed if he had an FIA Super License. That is, unless you are dying to know what his sunglasses-wearing dog Coco thinks of escalators (), or are curious as to whether he's still got a compass rose tattooed on his chest (). Sometimes it's better not to know.
