The ultra limited Ferrari Monza SP1 was designed as a sleek single-seat road car that offers a truly unique experience behind the wheel. Featuring a unique design, the best weight-to-power ratio of any barchetta, thanks to the extensive use of carbon-fiber in construction, and bespoke details, such as head-and tail-lights, wheels and interior. It also comes equipped with the most powerful engine Maranello has ever built, a 6.5L V12 that can help the vehicle accelerate from 0-62 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds.
Former F1 champion Nico Rosberg received an invitation to test the Monza SP1 while visiting Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello, Italy. As you can see in the video above, he thoroughly enjoyed the open-top driving experience and the 809 horsepower the vehicle packed under its hood.
Aimed at dedicated clients and collectors, the Monza SP1 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,” said Ferrari.
