Description

As an introduction to Ferrari’s Icona segment, Ferrari created the Monza SP1 and its twin car, the SP2. The Ferrari Monza SP2 is the two-seater version of Ferrari’s celebration of the past and, like the SP1, it brings back stylistic elements from an iconic era for the brand. 

Alongside the Ferrari Monza SP1, the Monza SP2 is a forerunner in a concept, known as ‘Icona’ (Icon), that taps into a leitmotif of the most evocative cars in the company’s history, creating a new segment of special, limited-series cars for clients and collectors. 

Like the Ferrari Monza SP1, the Monza SP2 is also inspired by Barchettas of the 1950s, which were driven to victory in international motorsport, not just by official works team drivers from the Scuderia, but also by a legion of gentlemen drivers who, in those years, frequently found themselves wheel to wheel with legendary professional drivers of the era.

The first ever Ferrari to be referred to as a Barchetta was the open-top version of the 1948 166 MM. The name was coined by Giovanni Agnelli who, upon seeing the car for the first time at the Turin Motor Show that year, commented that it was less like a car and more like a Barchetta, referring to the Italian for a small speedboat.

The Touring-bodied 166 MM Barchetta wrote Ferrari’s name firmly in the history books, winning first the Mille Miglia, and then the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1949. This model was followed by other extraordinarily successful Ferrari sports cars, such as the 750 Monza and 860 Monza, which were inspiration for the name of the new models.

Barchettas were similar to Spiders in form (two seaters), but had no roof or weather equipment. Instead of a full windscreen, they were equipped with just a small screen (single or wrap-around), and a removable tonneau cover over the passenger side. Both the Monda SP1 and SP2 are similar in concept, although the main difference is that they could be ordered either as a single-seater (SP1) or as a two-seater (SP2).

Enzo Ferrari used to say that “If there is such a thing as a soul, engines have one”. The SP2’s soul is, as is true of all Ferraris, in its engine. Both the Monza SP1 and SP2 are equipped with the most powerful naturally-aspirated V12 ever produced by Ferrari. Thanks to specific areas of development, the power of the 812 Superfast’s 6.5 liter was increased by 10 hp to 799 hp at 8,500 rpm, with a slight increase in torque to 530 lb-ft (719 Nm) at 7,000 rpm.

Just like on racing cars, extensive use of carbon-fiber was made throughout the construction of the Monza SP1 and SP2, making them light and responsive, and to enhance their sporty, aggressive visual appeal.

As these are completely open-air sports cars with no windscreen, one of the biggest challenges was to create an aerodynamic solution that would ensure the driver enjoys the performance of the cars without being affected by issues caused by the Barchetta configuration. The result was the patented 'Virtual Wind Shield' which is integrated into the fairing ahead of the instrument panel and the steering wheel, providing exceptional driving comfort.

The Ferrari Monza SP2 represents the pinnacle of automotive excellence, combining timeless design, exhilarating performance, and unparalleled craftsmanship. For those who appreciate the finer things in life, owning a Monza SP2 is an opportunity to experience the thrill of driving a true automotive masterpiece.

This 2021 Ferrari Monza SP2 is one of 499 built, configured with the iconic Rosso Corsa body color complemented with a black leather interior. The Monza SP2, based on the 812 Superfast, inherits its 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine, which now produces 799 hp and 530 lb-ft (719 Nm) of torque, claiming the title of Ferrari’s most powerful engine ever produced. With this, 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) is achieved in 2.9 seconds, with the Monza SP2 going on to reach a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

This particular example is in brand-new condition, with its odometer showing only factory mileage.
