If The Ferrari Monza SP1 And SP2 Don’t Set Your Heart Racing, Check Your Pulse

The Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 might just be the best-looking Ferraris of the last decade and if you weren’t already in love with them, after watching this newly released video you will.

The two limited-run specials were unveiled at last year’s Paris Auto Show, and in this clip, can be seen driving on public roads, including Rome. Sitting at an auto show floor, the two looked absolutely splendid, but they look even better while on the move.

Powering the Monza SP1 and SP2 is the 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 of the Ferrari 812 Superfast. Grunt for the duo sits at 799 hp at 8500 rpm and 530 lb-ft (719 Nm) of torque at 7000 rpm. For cars without any form of hybridization or forced induction, these figures are truly reemarkable.

In the sprint from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h), the Monza SP1 and SP2 match the 812 Superfast’s time of 2.9 seconds. The duo will continue through to 124 mph (200 km/h) just 7.9 seconds after setting off. Due to the aerodynamics, however, they don’t have top speeds as high as the 812 and both cap out at a touch over 186 mph (300 km/h). Which should still be enough for most occasions.

Ferrari intends on building a total of 499 Monza SP1 and SP2 models, each priced at roughly $1.75 million. Knowing limited-edition Ferraris, it’s inevitable that they will become collectables in the decades to come.

    Meh, they’re ok I guess 😛

  • ace_9

    I like that the design language is unique and it does not look like something from let’s say Jaguar… oh wait…

  • DaruniaG

    These cars won’t be driven by their owners. Collectors item

    • Merc1

      They can’t be driven on U.S. roads for obvious reasons, they were designed and built to be collectors items.

    I just checked my pulse. I guess that makes me a zombie.

  • Astonman

    These are my favorite front engine Ferraris in a long time. It would be nice if someone tried rendering a hard top on it.

  • ira j.

    i wish that car designers would realise that, with all the aerodynamic add-ons and geegaws, the cars look worse. if i could actually afford one of these, i think i would prefer beauty over top speed

    • ace_9

      And most people buying expensive sports cars prefer top speed, acceleration and handling so…

      • ira j.

        i could understand acceleration and handling. thaose attributes of a sports cars can be used every day. but top speed? unless (and even IF) you go to a track that has a straightaway long enough to reach it, it’s just a number. viscerally, do you honestly think that there is so much of a difference between 185 and 215 mph? mentally, probably, but in your gut; nope. again, if it was up to me, i would rather the car be beautiful and lose 30mph in top speed

        • ace_9

          But aerodynamic add-ons are most important for handling. Top speed is impacted mostly negatively, but at a cost of improved stability. So cars are not sleek, because they would be fast, but dangerous at high speeds. And it does not really matter how well these ferrari models handle, because nobody is going to compare the lap times.

          • ira j.

            and yet, the mclaren 720S has no exaggerated aerodynamic “add ons”, and therefore, to my eyes, at least, is more attractive (ignoring for the time being the proportions, that is that one is mid-front, the other mid-rear engine) than the 812. it also outaccelerates the 100 hp more powerul ferrari (yes, i know it has a quarter ton weight advantage) and looks MAHVELOUS doing it. and i’m a ferrari guy

          • ace_9

            Yes, 720S has everything nicely integrated, but 812 is also quite sleek. It even shares many functional styling elements with 720S.

          • ira j.

            that’s the point. the mac’s aerodynamic aides look well integrated into the basic design of the car. the 812’s look like they were added as an afterthought after the basic shape of the car had been finalised

  • ErnieB

    Absolutely Collectors items.. If I were a multigazillionare I’d put one in my living room and sit on it every day.. probably molest it .. I can’t seem to understand the meh comments but to rack their own.. these are masterpieces..

    • ace_9

      Not everyone is into unbelievably expensive and completely impractical money investments for ultra-rich people… And they look like a Jaguar too.

      • Merc1

        So what? That is why everyone isn’t rich enough so it balances out.

        M

        • ace_9

          😀 😀 😀 You just said that everyone is not rich, because they don’t care about seriously expensive things.

          • Merc1

            Nope. Read it again.

            M

          • ace_9

            Nope, you read it again. Here you go:
            Me: “Not everyone is into expensive impractical money investments for ultra-rich people.”
            You: “That is why everyone isn’t rich enough so it balances out.”

            Either explain how you meant it or leave it. Because it sounds strange.

          • Merc1

            Nah read it again, you’ll get it at some point.

  • GobbleUp

    Fugly, but collectible.

    • ace_9

      I would say a bit bland, but I agree, they are just collectibles. To me it’s as if the ferrari made an overly expensive table from a la ferrari engine block. I don’t really care what the ultra-rich people put into their houses.

  • Blade t

    These will never get driven..

  • MultiKdizzle

    These are absolutely stunning.

    It’s great to see Ferarris with non derivative design

    • ace_9

      *non-derivative Jaguar design

      • MultiKdizzle

        I don’t believe they look that much alike. Especially the rear end there are much different tailights,

        In either case, I meant a Ferrari that doesn’t look like every other Ferraris.

  • Mark Seven-Ultranine

    Yeah, those will work! Beautiful.
