Ferrari Monza SP1 & Monza SP2 Detailed In Official Photo Gallery

2019 Ferrari Monza SP1

The single-seater Monza SP1 and twin-seater SP2 are the first limited-edition cars in the "Icona" segment for "dedicated clients and collectors", the company said, based on the classic "barchetta" (little boat) designs of the 1940s and 1950s.

They're called the Monza SP1 and SP2, with the "SP" in the name referencing Ferrari's Special Projects in-house coachbuilder and the numerical component corresponding to the number of seats.

Ferrari is helping that dream come true-sort of.

Ferrari also debated adding an SUV to its stable of models, given some concerns that a sport-utility vehicle would ding the brand's stature.

The spectacular Monza SP1 and SP2 you see here is still limited (to less than 500 units, according to Autocar) and will still in all likelihood be extremely expensive (the price tag is expected to be knocking on US$3 million, or a staggering RM12.4 million a pop), but the fact remains that these cars are now being offered to a broader audience than there was before.

The Monzas are said to be inspired by Ferrari's vintage sports auto racers, like the pretty 1948 16 MM and achingly gorgeous 750 Monza and 860 Monza from the 1950s. Both are strict speedsters, and while their design may be retro the technology within is the most advanced in the Ferrari portfolio. They were created to take us back down Ferrari's memory lane, namely those of the 1940s and 1950s era where the name "barchetta" grew from. A development of the 812 Superfast, the 6.5 litre V12 unit produces 810 hp and 719 Nm of torque.

They are breathtakingly lovely, are powered by Maranello's most powerful V12 yet, and cost $3 million a pop.

This will be enough to send the lightweight roadster from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds, while it will hit 124 miles per hour in only 7.9 seconds.

Ferrari shares were steady at 1145 GMT, recovering from earlier losses.

Bespoke design details for the Icone series include those 21-inch forged alloys, a unique LED headlight design, a full-width "lightbar" at the rear and dihedral doors that allow access to the carbon-clad interior. Dry weight is 1,500 kg for the Ferrari Monza SP1 and 1,520 kg for the Ferrari Monza SP2.

It features an aluminum frame that is draped with gorgeous carbon fiber bodywork. Ferrari have utilised a "Virtual Wind Shield" which deviates the air flow to increase driver comfort.

Gas-guzzling Ferraris are faced with more and more anti-emission regulations around the world, as well as increasingly environmentally-aware would-be owners.
