The Ferrari Monza SP1 is the first model in Ferrari’s limited-edition ‘Icona’ series, designed specifically for collectors. This car draws inspiration from the racing barchettas of the late 1940s and early 1950s and is a single-seat sports car without a windscreen.

Ferrari engineers created a “Virtual Wind Shield” that directs air flow over the instrument panel, forming a protective bubble around the driver. The car’s sleek design is accentuated by an aerodynamic hump covering the driver’s seat.

The Monza SP1’s structure is a marvel of carbon fiber engineering, featuring a chassis tub so rigid it supports the installation of dramatic scissor doors and a single-piece front clam shell that reveals the 6.5-liter V-12 engine derived from the 812 Superfast.

Paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and four-wheel steering, it is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever produced by Ferrari, generating 798 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque. This enables the Monza SP1 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed claimed to be ‘over 299 km/h’.
