These retro-inspired single-seat and two-seat speedsters look absolutely stunning.
Ferrari has been hinting at this reveal for a little while now, but its website teaser page revealed little more than the fact that an ‘iconic’ new Ferrari was going to be announced on September 17. Now that the agonizing wait is over, loyal Ferrari customers who were invited to attend the event were treated to not one but two new vehicles, the Monza SP1 and SP2.
Both Ferrari collector David Lee's and the unofficial Ferrari.icona Instagram accounts show the vehicles in some detail and both cars look superb. The coachwork is retro-inspired and looks similar to Ferrari race cars from the ‘50s such as the iconic 250 Testa Rossa but with modern touches such as carbon fiber trim and vastly updated tech.
Underneath the bodywork is the running gear from the Ferrari 812 Superfast, there is no word on whether the power plant has received any upgrades but even in standard form, the 6.5-liter V12 engine pushes out 789hp and 530 lb ft of torque.
We can see from the images that the SP1 is a single-seater while the SP2 has space for two occupants and even if the V12 stays as is, these two retro-racers look as though they weigh a fair bit less than the donor car so should be able to eclipse the 812’s 2.9-second 0-60 mph time.
The interior is snug in both models and the racing-style bucket seats and tachometer-centric instrument cluster show that these two cars are destined for the track. Let's hope a few owners are actually brave enough to do just that.
Specifics on pricing and the number of units they are planning to build have not been revealed yet but as with most limited-edition Ferraris, they are most likely to have been sold out regardless of cost.
