Ferrari Creates Awesome Video For A Car You Can't Buy

Limited Edition

Unless you are very, very fortunate.

A few months ago at a private event, Ferrari revealed two limited-run vehicles called the SP1 and SP2 before unveiling them to the public at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The two cars are the first in a special series called Icona and are styled to harken back to the Barchetta race cars of the 1950s - cars like the 166 MM, 750 Monza, and 860 Monza. As with those racecars, the SP1 and SP2 will ship with no roof and no physical windshield and will, unfortunately, not be road legal in the United States.

You may be disappointed to hear these cars won't be street legal in the US but you shouldn't harp on it for too long. Ferrari will only build 499 units combined, so if you don't already have your order in for one, you'd better be willing to pay a hefty premium over the car's $1.8 million asking price.

To remind the rest of us how lucky those 499 individuals will be, Ferrari has decided to create an official video of the cars. The video begins with some black and white footage of an early Ferrari racecar driving on a dirt road. It then begins to transition to closeup shots of the SP1 and SP2, which illustrate how both cars were inspired by the company's classic racers.

Both cars will utilize the 6.5-liter V12 engine from the 812 Superfast, which has been tuned to produce around 800 horsepower. Ferrari hasn't released any performance specifications but we'd predict a 0-60 mph time of under three seconds. Since only 499 will be built, we doubt there will be any opportunities to get behind the wheel and see how these cars drive. The chance to drive a limited run or one-off Ferrari doesn't come around frequently, but we hope a review will emerge at some point.
