What is Ferrari Icona?
Ferrari Icona is at once a homage to the Prancing Horse’s past and an embrace of its future, blending modern engineering and technology with the vintage styling that helped to turn Ferrari into the iconic supercar manufacturer that it is today. Ferrari’s Icona models draw inspiration from the iconic Ferraris of the 1950s, and the first models in the series — the Monza SP1 and SP2 — have already been released in extremely limited quantities.
The Inspiration of the Icona Series
Icona is Italian for icon, so it’s fitting that the Icona series hearkens to the past while welcoming the future, and models produced under this banner will be designed to appeal to collectors and enthusiasts who wish to embrace Ferrari’s rich heritage with arms wide open.
Enrico Galliera, Ferrari’s Head of Marketing, described the Icona line as “timeless design of iconic Ferraris reinterpreted with innovative materials and state-of-the-art technology.”
The SP1 and SP2 are the first Icona models to be made, and their design is inspired by three classic Ferraris: the 250 Testarossa, 166 MM, and 750 Monza.
Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2
These limited edition Ferraris are limited to only 500 models between the two of them, and Ferrari describes the Monza SP1 and SP2 as “probably the closest and purest driving experience to Formula 1” due in part to their open-air cockpits — a boast backed up by the fact that both models are capable of reaching 62 mph from a standstill in under three seconds.
Both models share the same 809-hp naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 engine, but their incredible performance is about more than just what’s under the hood. Both feature a new aluminum chassis based on that of the 812 Superfast, along with a carbon fiber body made with the same production techniques used by Ferrari’s Formula 1 team.
Both the SP1 and SP2 are open-air road cars that give drivers the opportunity to enjoy the wind in their hair together with the thrill of driving a limited edition supercar. The SP1 is a single seater that offers a pure connection with the road, while the SP2 shares much of the design elements of its twin car, but includes a second seat.
