Official: Ferrari Monza SP1 And SP2 Break Cover In Italy

Reveal / 15 Comments

The two cars will be the first in a limited-edition special-series called 'Icona.'

Earlier today, we were treated to a few leaked images of the new Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2. Now, Ferrari has officially revealed the two cars, so we have some more juicy details about these hot, retro speedsters. The reveal happened during the Ferrari's Capital Market's Day at the factory in Maranello, where we also gained some valuable information about the company's future model plans. The Monza SP1 and Monza SP2 are the first in a limited-edition special-series called Icona, which will draw inspiration from 1950s Ferrari models and feature the most advanced sports car technology available today.

Both the SP1 and SP2 harken back to the 1948 166 MM, which originally inspired the name 'barchetta', as well as the 750 Monza and 860 Monza of the 1950s. The SP1 offers an uncompromised single-seat layout, while the SP2 loses the tonneau cover and adds a second seat.

Each features an incredible power-to-weight ratio thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber and a 6.5-liter V12 from the 812 Superfast producing 789 horsepower and 530 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the incredible power-to-weight ratio, the two cars can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in just 7.9 seconds.

As you can see, the absence of a roof and windshield gave the designers the freedom to create a truly unique design. The result is an experience that rivals driving a Ferrari Formula One car. The whole vintage looks can be accompanied by a number of matching accessories including racing overalls, jersey, helmet, gloves, scarf and driving shoes - those will come in handy when you bring the car to a fancy concourse event.

We are genuinely blown away by the beauty of these two cars and we can't wait to see what else is coming in the Ferrari Icona line. Perhaps we may even see some designs from the 1980s like the F40 and Testarossa revived in a modern interpretation. Ferrari didn't announce pricing for the Icona Series cars, but if we had to guess, the number has seven digits and they have all been sold out.
