The Ferrari Monza SP1, along with the two-seat SP2, were the first two vehicles released in Ferrari’s “Icona” series, a line of exclusive vehicles inspired by the design of historic Ferraris. In place of a traditional windshield that would have otherwise compromised its unusually linear appearance, it uses rapidly escaping compressed air expelled from a slot above the instrument cluster to deflect air flow away from the driver.
The SP1’s engine, based on that of the 812 Superfast, was the most powerful naturally aspirated Ferrari V-12 ever built at the time of its introduction.
