At the Unveiling of the $1.4 Million Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2

Ferrari seeks profit boost with Monza retro-styled supercar

If you like Ferraris from the 1950s, you will love the all-new Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2. These limited-edition special-series cars are the first in a new segment called "Icona" and draw inspiration from the most evocative Ferraris of the 1950s and feature the most advanced sports auto technology available today. They are inspired by the 1948 166 MM, the 750 Monza and 860 Monza. Topgear.com reports that Camilleri "abhors hearing SUV in the same sentence as Ferrari". One is a single-seat creation - SP1 - while the other seats two - the SP2. These cars, which will take inspiration from Maranello's vast and illustrious back catalogue, will be strictly limited and offered only to Ferrari's best customers. Because they have been inspired by the most evocative Ferraris of the 1950s and feature the most advanced sports vehicle technology available today. These cars were highly successful racing machines and helped to deliver numerous victories in the World Sports Car Championship.

Built on the 812's chassis, the Monza SP's will also feature a ton of carbon fiber bodywork, the best power-to-weight ratio of any barchetta, scissor doors, and a front-hinged one-piece carbon-fiber hood created to showcase its V12 lump.

Under the hood beats a modified 6.5-liter V-12 engine that packs 809 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque.

Performance remains, as you would expect, 812 rapid: 62mph comes in 2.9 seconds but more impressively, 124mph comes in 7.9 seconds (identical to the SF) despite the fact there's no windscreen to slice air particles away from your not particularly aerodynamic noggin.

Weather Channel anchor appears to be dramatizing storm
Florence, which is now a tropical storm, is extreme flooding in many areas of the Carolinas and has killed at least seven people. Weather reporters covering Hurricane Florence no doubt dealt with hammering wind , driving rain, and charging storm surge.

Providing the thrust is the most powerful engine Ferrari has ever built for a road vehicle. Dry weight is 1,500 kg for the Ferrari Monza SP1 and 1,520 kg for the Ferrari Monza SP2.

Most of the cars made by Ferrari will be hybrid petrol-electric by 2022, the Italian luxury vehicle manufacturer, including its first SUV. Both cars are made nearly entirely out of carbon-fibre, including the chassis and the bodywork.

Owners of the Monza SP1 and SP2 will get unique apparel and accessories including racing overalls, jersey, helmet, gloves, scarf and driving shoes designed by Loro Piana and Berluti.

The newly-minted CEO stumbled out of the gate in August when Ferrari shares plunged the most in more than two years after he called Marchionne's profit targets "aspirational".
