EN­GINE

Evo India - - BRIEFING -

THE NEW FER­RARIS ARE MADE TO POP your eyes out and make your hearts beat faster. The Ital­ian mar­que has un­veiled two new spe­cial-series sports cars chris­tened the Monza SP1 and SP2 to cel­e­brate the com­pany's Cap­i­tal Mar­ket's Day.

They're the first in Fer­rari's new ‘Icona' series and draw in­spi­ra­tion from World Sports Car Cham­pi­onship win­ning iconic Fer­rari barchet­tas like the 166 MM and the 750 and 860 Mon­zas. And as al­ways, the team at Maranello has yet again cre­ated magic. The de­sign of the SP1 and SP2 con­vey an ideal of age­less grace and min­i­mal­ist form. Even though there's retro styling cou­pled to mod­ern age techno-wiz­ardry, Fer­rari has equipped it with one of the best V12s ever made.

Fer­rari will con­firm a price for the Monza twins soon but don't ex­pect them to be priced un­der 3 mil­lion eu­ros. Pro­pel­ling the SP1 and SP2 will be the most pow­er­ful en­gine Fer­rari has ever built – a 6.5-litre nat­u­rally as­pi­rated V12 that makes a mon­strous 808bhp at 8500rpm and 719Nm of torque at 7000rpm. As a re­sult the cars can sprint from 0-100kmph in just 2.9 sec­onds while 200kmph comes in at 7.9 sec­onds. And the top speed is more than 300kmph. The same en­gine does duty in the 812 Su­per­fast and has been her­alded as one of the best en­gines ever made in the his­tory of au­to­mo­biles.
