The Ferrari Monza SP2 is limited production sports cars produced by Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari, introduced in 2018 for the 2019 model year. The cars mark the start of a new lineage of models called the “Icona” series, a program aimed at creating special cars inspired by classic Ferrari models, all to be produced in limited series. The first cars of the new lineage is the Monza SP2, whose designs are inspired by the 750 Monza, 250 Testarossa and 166 MM. The SP2 features two seats. Fewer than 500 are expected to be produced at a price of €1.6 million before options. The SP2 feature low slung, carbon fibre speedster bodywork inspired by early, post-war Ferrari race cars such as the 166 MM, as well as the 250 Testarossa and 750 Monza. The SP2 has two seats separated by a center section.
Both the 2022 Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are powered by a variant of the naturally aspirated 6,496 cc (6.5 L; 396.4 cu in) F140 GA V12 found in the 812 Superfast. The engine has been tuned to generate 7.4 kW (10 hp; 10 PS) more than the engine in the 812, for a total of 596 kW (799 hp; 810 PS) at 8,500 rpm and 719 N⋅m (530 lbf⋅ft) of torque at 7,000 rpm, making them at the time, the most powerful factory Ferrari V12 road cars ever produced until the release of the 812 Competizione and Competizione A in 2021 featuring an upgraded F140 V12 producing 820hp (830PS). The engine in the Monza SP2 is derived directly from that of the 812 Superfast, with optimised fluid-dynamics in the intake ducts to deliver even higher performance.
The cars feature small scissor doors and don’t have windshields, instead relying on a patented system Ferrari calls the “Virtual Windshield”, which is supposed to deviate airflow away from the driver. The chassis is loosely based on the 812 and both the SP1 and SP2 cars feature carbon fibre composite bodywork. The Virtual Wind Shield was patented for this car in response to the need to allow the driver enjoy it at high speeds. Although it remains below the driver’s cone of vision, it delivers maximum driving comfort for a barchetta.The SP1 weighs 1,500 kg (3,306 lb), while the two-seat SP2 is 20 kg (45 lb) heavier at 1,520 kg (3,351 lb). The strength of the composite bodywork allows for the inclusion of a large clamshell hood. A car that seems sculpted by the wind.
The result is that the model is perfectly balanced with no roll whatsoever for almost unimaginably pure, uncompromising sports-car handling. Because there are no windscreen pillars, the driver’s view is completely unhindered and this enables them to attack corners with a freedom only experience with a Formula 1 car. The driver can thus enjoy involving and rewarding sports car responses over twisty routes: the car is always gratifying but never difficult to control. It is the purity of the styling elements that impresses – an aesthetic that is futuristic but, at the same time, a respectful yet un-nostalgic homage to the past. In 2020, Ferrari Styling Centre was awarded the Compasso d’Oro industrial design award for the Monza SP1. Award was received by Flavio Manzoni and Jane Reeve.
