Powerful Ferrari cars in limited edition, unveiled Monday


The company said in a press release that the latest models – SP1 and SP2 – are first in a limited series called “Icona”. The Monza SP1 has only one seat while the Monza SP2 allows for one passenger. The cars can reach 100 kilometres per hour (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds. The new models are inspired by the 250 Testarossa, based on the Ferrari 812 SuperFast and appears to be somewhat similar to the F12 TRS. Ferrari said the limited edition would run to a maximum of 500 both models combined.


The Monza’s bodyshell is built entirely from carbon fiber and neither model comes with a roof or windscreen. Ferrari said a “virtual wind shield” is placed behind the instrumentation panel to push air flow above the driver who is sat in a Formula 1 style cockpit. The Monza cars have the nearly 800 HP V12 from the 812 Superfast, the front-engine successor to the old F12 Berlinetta. Official pictures and details aren’t out yet, but the cars were seen on the Instagram account Ferrari.Icona yesterday evening. Monza will be on display to the public at the Paris motor show next month, where the company will also reveal pricing details. The company announced at the same time a new earnings target range for 2022 of between 1.8 and 2 billion euros ($2.1 -2.3bn). The company also intends to launch its first SUV, Purosangue, at the end of a five-year period.
