Ferrari on Tuesday (18/9) launched two supercars, one of which was Monza SP1 which only had one seat.
The Italian racing car manufacturer also introduced Monza SP2 with a capacity of two passengers. Both supercars are the latest vehicles whose models are inspired by classic racing car designs.
Monza SP1 and SP2 are nicknamed "Icona" because of their iconic model, and are characteristic of Ferrari from time to time. However, these two models are only sold in very limited quantities.
This step is part of the medium-term strategy announced by Ferrari Chief Executive, Louis Camilleri. The Monza model is inspired by the style of "barchetta", a term originally used in light-weight racing cars with open roofs that were popular in the era of 1940 to 1950.
The cars will offer 810 horsepower, while the body is wrapped in lightweight carbon fiber. The car is capable of reaching speeds of 100 kilometers per hour in 2.9 seconds.
"Barchetta is the most intoxicating experience for the driver," said Ferrari's Head of Product Marketing, Nicola Boari, at the new model press conference.
Ferrari will produce around 500 units for the two models which are only sold to certain consumers. The complete specifications and prices of these two cars will be announced at the Paris Auto Show exhibition next month.
