Ferrari SP1 and SP2 Monzas.Production 499

Ferrari SP1 and SP2 Monzas.Production 499 (based on 812 Superfast)

The new Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 have been unveiled on occasion of the company’s Capital Market’s Day at the factory in Maranello. These limited-edition special-series cars are the first in a new segment called ‘Icona’ and draw inspiration from the most evocative Ferraris of the 1950s and feature the most advanced sports car technology available today.

Aimed at dedicated clients and collectors, the Monza SP1 and SP2 reference the iconic Ferrari racing barchettas of the past, not least the 1948 166 MM, which originally inspired the name ‘barchetta’, and the 750 Monza and 860 Monza. Designed with the sole aim of winning, these uncompromising models helped build the Ferrari legend in the 1950s by delivering numerous victories in the World Sports Car Championship.

The Ferrari Monza SP1 was designed as an uncompromising single-seat road car that offers a truly unique experience behind the wheel. The second configuration, the Monza SP2, thanks to the elimination of the tonneau cover and the addition of a second protective screen and a second roll-bar, is instead a two-seater enabling the passenger to share the same driving sensations.

The Monza SP1 and SP2 feature a unique design, the best weight-to-power ratio of any barchetta, thanks to the extensive use of carbon-fibre in construction, and distinctive details, such as head-and tail-lights, wheels and interior, which further enhance the cars’ exclusivity. Equipped with the most powerful engine Maranello has ever built, un 810 cv V12, they can sprint from 0-100 km / h en 2.9 seconds and 0-200 km / h en 7.9 segundo.

The architecture of the two cars is based on a monolithic form with an aerodynamic wing profile where the complete absence of a roof and windscreen gave the designers the freedom to create unique proportions that would not have been possible on a traditional spider.

The result is the feeling of blistering speed normally only experienced by Formula 1 drivers, which derives from the concept of a cockpit carved from the car’s very volume that wraps around the driver.

The Ferrari Design Centre has sought to create a very pure design, as though born of a single pencil stroke, to convey an ideal of timeless elegance, minimalist form and refined detail. Visually complex solutions, such as those seen on recent racing cars, have been avoided, giving way to a more understated formal design language. Never has a model expressed such a narrative power, highlighting its appeal as a driver’s car where the link between man and automobile becomes symbiotic.

A radical choice was made for the design of the cars’ compact doors which open upwards. Equally important is the all-carbon-fibre one-piece bonnet-wing assembly which is hinged at the front to showcase the imposing V12 engine once open.

As with racing models, the bodyshell of both cars is made entirely from lightweight carbon-fibre. The entire interior is trimmed in the same material with a natural finish to enhance the sporty impact of the design. Weight reduction and the ‘barchetta’ configuration guarantee unique vehicle dynamics: perfectly balanced with no roll whatsoever for pure, uncompromising sports-car handling.

Because these are authentic “en plein air” sports cars, one of the greatest challenges in their design was managing the aerodynamic flows inside the cockpit in the absence of a windscreen. The solution was the innovative patented “Virtual Wind Shield” which has been incorporated into the fairing ahead of the instrument panel and the steering wheel. The “Virtual Wind Shield” deviates a part of the air flow to maintain driving comfort.

Especially for Monza SP1 and SP2 owners Ferrari, in collaboration with two leading luxury brands, Loro Piana and Berluti, has created elegant gentlemen-driver-inspired apparel and accessories. The driver’s selection includes racing overalls, jersey, helmet, gloves, scarf and driving shoes. These feature a number of technical solutions to guarantee a comfortable fit and ensure freedom of movement while driving.

The Ferrari SP1 and SP2 Monzas, first seen at Capital Markets Day in Maranello, have made their motor show debuts at Paris (oct 2018). Their pricing has also been confirmed – 1.6 million euros including Italian VAT. Strip out that Italian VAT, convert to sterling and factor in UK VAT and you’re looking at a similar sum; roughly £1.6 million.

499 will be built, with the split between single-seat SP1s and dual-seat SP2 Monzas to be dictated by customer preference. Buyers will not be able to buy both, and getting your name on the Monza list will require sturdy Ferrari-buying credentials – that high-mileage 456 you just snaffled on eBay probably won’t cut the mustard.

‘But the first thing I told my team was that I didn’t want it to be nostalgic. This car, despite the name, is not a modern interpretation of the Monza. It’s an interpretation of the concept of the barchetta. This is part of our history, but I also love the idea of being part of the machine, with a level of symbiosis beyond anything else – essentially you sit in the car, with the carrozzeria at eye level. The idea of driving this, without a roof, with no helmet and windscreen, is for me really impressive.’

Ferrari chose its industry-facing 2018 Capital Markets Day to unveil two limited-run Icona creations, the single-seat Monza SP1 and dual-seat Monza SP2 Barchettas

The absence of a roof and a windscreen (Ferrari talks of a RenaultSport Spider-like ‘virtual windscreen’) is key to the Monza’s appeal, which head of product marketing Nicola Boari describes as ‘the embodiment of the passion of our founder; the purest and most intoxicating driving experience, with very little between you and the asphalt’.

An upper body in F1-grade composites, including kevlar and carbonfibre, cuts weight while giving design director Flavio Manzoni and his team the freedom to realise what he describes as ‘the elegance of the past fused with an uncompromising architecture and a modern approach, and not a nostalgic approach’.

Inspired by the 750 Monza racer of the ’50s, Manzoni’s creation is a thoroughly contemporary Ferrari form, one that deftly draws on the past while refusing to acquiesce to retro.

In both versions the driver is encircled in a sweep of elliptical carbonfibre, the sparse driving instruments supplemented by an offset lower panel housing supplementary controls. The car debuted in three colours – black, rojo, and silver with yellow race graphics, with the latter looking particularly striking on the car’s unique 21-inch forged wheels.

First deliveries from summer 2019.
