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.
