9 Ferrari Monza SP1/SP2 open-top supercars revealed

Cover for Ferrari Monza SP1/SP2 open-top supercars revealed

Ferrari have just introduced new special edition front-engine open-top sportscar - the Ferrari Monza.

The name "Monza" is not new - it was already used for conceptually similar race car in 1950s (watch this awesome Jay Leno's Garage video of Admiral Robert Phillips and his original 1955 Ferrari 500 Mondial S2). The big difference between original Monza/Mondial and 2018 car is that former uses small displacement four cylinder engine, instead of the typical Ferrari V12.

The new Monza appears to be based on Ferrari 812 Superfast with the same 800+ horsepower naturally aspirated V12. What's not shared with 812 is obvious - all body panels are new and bespoke with no roof and no wind-shield.

Ferrari will build no more than 500 Monzas, offering two versions - Monza SP1, a single seater and Monza SP2 with a passenger seat.

As you would expect for a special edition Ferrari in 2018 car price bubble, all Monzas are already sold.

Those cars look so good. I love the Front Lights. and the rims just seem so clean. Reminds me of the Stirling Moss SLR or the Aventador J. Just stunning.

812 Superfast objectively much better car than this, but you can make the same argument about VW Golf - it has roof, 4 seats etc.

To me this looks like a speculative instrument for Ferrari to make a quick buck and for rabbid car collectors / speculators the same.

Well honestly if there’s a market and it’s adding something new to the automotive world why not? They SHOULD be going crazy and going through with crazy ideas. I applaud them.

I do like the 2 seater. the 1 seater just looks off, and I see no point of having a Ferrari that you can't bring a girl in.

you already have butthead to keep you company on this board, so why drag him into a passenger seat ? he's better off in a jetta or a panny if you're thinking of having him as a must have passenger by my side
