Last month, Ferrari had unveiled two limited edition models at a private event. Dubbed as Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2, it made its public debut at the Paris Auto Show. Both of them are inspired by the 1950s Barchettas from models such as 750 Monza and 860 Monza. Ferrari SP1 is a single-seater whereas SP2 is a two-seater respectively. Both of the limited edition models are first in a new segment which will be called Icona. Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are considered to be fast because of the best power-to-weight ratio than any Barchetta.
Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are powered with Maranello’s most powerful engine till date. It is naturally aspirated 6.5 liter V12 unit just like the 812 Superfast. The engine offers an output of 799hp (810PS) and 719Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. Dry weights of the car are 1500kg and 1520kg respectively because of the extensive usage of carbon fibers. All these factors contribute in acceleration figure. To reach 0-62mph, it takes 2.9 seconds whereas for 0-124mph, it is dispatched in 7.9 seconds. Top speed of both the Barchettas takes 186mph when driven by capable driver.
Both these models are missing out on physical windscreen, but Ferrari said not to worry. Tiny “Virtual Wind Shield” is integrated into the fairing just ahead of the instrument panel. Company claims that it is enough to deflect airflow over the driver’s head. For Ferrari SP2, there is tiny motorcycle-style physical windshield that is present just in front of the passenger seat. Both these models are meant as road cars instead of track car. Pricing of both these models have been disclosed as of yet.
