Instagram Post Captures the Upcoming Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2

Automotive News 35 September 18, 2018 by

Is Ferrari getting ready to launch a new special edition to its lineup? Thanks to a sneak Instagram user, it looks like that’s the case. It won’t be just one, either.

David Lee, who goes by the descriptive username ferraricollector_davidlee, showed off a few pictures on his account. There are only a few snippets of the two cars, though it does appear that Lee is at a private event for the unveiling.

The first car we see sports the moniker Monza SP1. This single-seat car uses a monoposto, or offset cockpit, design like the Infiniti Prototype 10. This harkens back to the early days of Ferrari’s racing history.

Famous cars like the Ferrari 375-Plus Spider Competizione and 290 MM used setups like this.

While not exactly practical for everyday use, it certainly looks cool. The blending of retro design cues with modern performance is always a win in our books.

The second car gets a Monza SP2 designation. Unlike the SP1, this car uses a more traditional cockpit setup with two seats.

According to Lee, both vehicles use the underpinnings of the Ferrari 812. This means a 6.5-liter V12 turning out a whopping 789hp. However, due to fewer body panels and what looks like a sea of carbon fiber, both will likely weigh less. If this is true, it could put the 0-60mph time in the neighborhood of only 2.5 seconds.

Unfortunately, all we can do at this point is speculate. Lee didn’t give any other details surrounding the car other than it’s a limited edition. Per the Instagram post, he says Ferrari plans just 200 examples. It’s unclear if he means total or 200 of each model.

The “SP” in both of the cars also points to Ferrari’s special projects division. You might remember back in May, it showed off the gorgeous SP38. That was just a one-off though, so hopefully the 200 figure means more of these exotic cars in the world.

Once Ferrari rolls out the details on the SP1 and SP2, we will let you know more. In the meantime, you can check out all the images from the Instagram page.
