Well for starters – these cars are fast, like really fast.

Everything old is new again—a truism that is wonderfully embodied by 

Ferrari’s new limited-edition Icona series of cars; SP1 and SP2


The Monza twins echo the design and philosophy of race-winning Barchettas from the 50’s.

Take a closer look, however, and you’ll find that the vehicles are packed with the most cutting-edge sports car technology available.

Ferrari injects classic, windscreen-less beauty into Monza special editions!


Who needs a windshield anyway? 

Apparently not prospective owners of the just-announced Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2

The one- and two-passenger cars (respectively) are retro throwbacks that will be available in limited numbers only. (“Aimed at dedicated clients and collectors.”)


The first models in Ferrari’s new Icona series, the two Monzas draw inspiration from the automaker’s open-top Barchetta-style race cars of the 1950s and late 1940s. And if you are looking for specifics, it’s particularly the 1948 166 MM, the 750 Monza, and the 860 Monza.


Claimed to offer “the best weight-to-power ratio of any Barchetta,” the new road models feature full carbon fiber body shells, compact upward-opening doors, and a front-hinged one-piece carbon fiber hood that lifts up to reveal a V12 engine

Reportedly the most powerful engine ever built in Ferrari’s Maranello factory, it has a maximum power output of 603 kW (810 CVS) at 8,500 rpm and produces 719 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.


These specs translate into acceleration figures of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 7.9 seconds, and a top speed of over 300 km/h (186 mph).Wowzee!


If you don’t believe us, you can see for yourself. Watch the video below to hear the magical engine and exhaust notes. Delizioso!

Needless to say, drivers and passengers will need a good set of goggles at those speeds. That said, the cars do have a "Virtual Wind Shield" in the form of a fairing located ahead of the instrument panel and steering wheel. This deviates some of the incoming air flow away from the cockpit, keeping the occupants from getting completely wind-blasted.

Both vehicles are 4,657 mm long, 1,996 mm wide and 1,155 mm high, with the SP1 weighing 1,500 kg (3,307 lb) and the SP2 coming in at 1,520 kg (3,351 lb). Those weight figures are for cars with optional lightweight components.


Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are still being determined, and pricing – well, you know, "If you have to ask …"

As if the SP1 or SP2 (each rumored to cost over seven figures) weren’t enough of an investment, Ferrari has also partnered with Loro Piana and Berluti to produce driver’s accessories for owners of the special-edition cars. 

I suppose if you’re going to go all the way, you might as well look the part.
