Focused at devoted collectors and clients, the Monza SP1 and SP2 use the old iconic Ferrari racing barchettas, not minimum the 1948 166 MM, which initially inspired the name ‘barchetta’, and the 860 Monza and 750 Monza. Designed with the only objective of winning, these relentless models assisted in constructing the Ferrari legend in the 1950s by providing many achievements in the Championship of World Sports Car. The Ferrari Monza SP1 was designed as a relentless road car with single-seat that provides a really unique experience following the wheel. The second presentation that is the Monza SP2 has made the elimination of the tonneau cover and the second protective screen is an addition along with a second roll-bar, is instead a two-seater allowing the passenger to have the similar sensations of driving.
The Monza SP1 and SP2 propose a unique design, the best ratio of weight-to-power of any Barchetta because of the expansive utilization of carbon-fibre in production, and distinguishing information, including wheels, head & tail lights, and interior, which in addition boost the cars totality. Mechanized with the first ever most powerful engine Maranello has built, an 810 cv V12, they can run from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 7.9 seconds. The building of the two cars is rooted from a rigid form with the profile of an aerodynamic wing where the whole absence of a windscreen and roof provided the designers with the independence to form unique parts that would not have been achieved on a traditional spider.
The conclusion is the sensation of extremely fast speed usually only experienced by Formula 1 drivers, which obtains from the idea of a cockpit engraved from the very volume of the car that covers across the driver.
The Ferrari Design Centre has attempted to form a very refined design, as though originate of a single pencil stroke, to carry a perfect of timeless grace, the most minimal form and refined detail. Optically compound solutions, such as those viewed on latest racing cars, have been ignored, giving direction to a more described formal design language. Never has a model conveyed such a power of narrative, emphasizing its call as a driver’s car where the connection between man and automobile becomes symbiotic. A revolutionary alternative was made for the design of the compact doors of the car that open upwards. Equally significant is the all-carbon-fibre one-piece bonnet-wing fabrication which is attached at the front to represent the impressive V12 engine once open.

Talking about the racing models, the body-cover of both cars is produced fully from carbon-fibre which is of lightweight. The whole interior is reduced in a similar material with a real finish to boost the sporty effect of the design. Weight depletion and the ‘barchetta’ configuration give assurance of unique vehicle dynamics: ideally balanced with no role at all for refining, relentless handling of sports-car.
Because these are genuine “en plein air” sports cars, one of the main challenges in their design was controlling the aerodynamic flows inside the cockpit in the lack of a windscreen. The solution was the freshly obtained patent for “Virtual Wind Shield” which has been formed into a legal corporation with the fairing ahead of the steering wheel and the instrument panel. The “Virtual Wind Shield” diverges a part of the air flow to keep driving comfortably.
Mainly for Monza SP1 and SP2 holders Ferrari, in a merger with two top luxury brands which are Berluti and Loro Piana, has formed stylish gentlemen-driver-inspired accessories and apparel. The choice of the driver consists of a jersey, racing overalls, gloves, helmet, driving shoes and scarf. These cars promote a number of technical solutions to give assurance of a comfortable fit and assured independence of movement while driving. The engine of the cars provides 6496 cm3 of overall displacement along with the generation of the maximum power output of 596 kW (810 cv) at 8500 rpm and high torque of 719 Nm at 7000 rpm.
