THE NEW Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 have been unveiled in occasion of the company’s Capital Market’s Day at the factory in Maranello. These limited-edition special-series cars are the first in a new segment called ‘Icona’ and draw inspiration from the most evocative Ferraris of the 1950s and feature the most advanced sports car technology available today. Aimed at dedicated clients and collectors, the Monza SP1 and SP2 refer- ence the iconic Ferrari racing barchettas of the past, not least the 1948 166 MM, which originally inspired the name ‘barchetta’, and the 750 Monza and 860 Monza. The Monza SP1 and SP2 feature a unique design, the
best weight-to-power ratio of any barchetta, thanks to the extensive use of carbon-fibre in construction, and distinctive details, such as head-and tail-lights, wheels and interior, which further enhance the cars’ exclusivity. The architecture is based on a monolithic form with aerodynamic wing profile, as the designers have removed it to give them more fredom to create a unique proportion. The all carbon-fibre bonnet is hinged at the front to showcase the V12 engine. Both the cars come equipped with the most powerful engine Maranello has ever built, a 810cc V12, they can sprint from 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds and 0-200kmph in 7.9 seconds.
