In September of the eighteenth year, the Ferrari company declassified two new models at once – the Monza SP1 and Monza SP2 speedters. Supercars became the first representatives of the “Icona” line, which will include their most exclusive and expensive models.
Stylistically, the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are reminiscent of cars from the 1950s, while the company notes that the designers took inspiration from the 1948 Ferrari 166 MM. However, in the classic design of speedsters, you can also see a lot of modern solutions.
Both cars are quite similar to each other, while their bodies are completely made of carbon fiber. Sideways, the speedsters are notable for the presence of a long bonnet and muscular wheel arches.
The “face” of the Monza SP1 and SP2 is formed by a carbon splitter, narrow LED DRL strips and a wide “smiling” radiator grille. But they do not have a traditional windshield, which will allow drivers to fully experience the speed.
However, Ferrari did not completely abandon wind protection and used the innovative Virtual Wind Shield technology. The latter is a miniature air deflector behind the instrument panel, designed to break up particularly strong air currents.
Access to the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 compact saloon is carried out from low doors that open sideways and upwards. The SP1 version has a single cockpit, while a carbon fiber casing is installed in the passenger seat.
The Italians point out that this modification is the ideal driver’s car. The Monza SP2 version has two seats, while a miniature windshield is installed in front of the passenger, and another fairing is located behind the headrest.
A three-spoke steering wheel is installed in the interior of the speedsters, and on the center console you can see a whole scattering of buttons and handles. In terms of interior design, the Italians used a variety of carbon fiber components on display to design the interior.
In particular, the technical filling of the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2, the manufacturer decided not to go into, however, it is known that both cars are built on the basis of the Ferrari 812 Superfast, and their height is only 1,155 mm. The dry weight of the single-seat SP1 is 1,500 kg, while the SP2 variant weighs 1,520 kg.
The supercars are powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine, which the brand representatives call “the most powerful unit in the history of the company” – its output here is 810 horsepower and 719 Nm of torque.
Traction is transmitted to the wheels of the rear axle, it takes only 2.9 seconds to accelerate from zero to hundreds of cars, they take the bar of 200 km / h in 7.9 seconds, and the maximum speed reaches 300 kilometers per hour.
A total of 100 copies of the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 will be produced. The cost of the speedsters was not disclosed, but the company said that the entire circulation has already been sold out.
