HOW TO BUILD AN "ICONA"

The Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 models are produced on the LSS production line, which is entirely dedicated to the Special Series, and is where the limited series models of the future will be built. The combination of the technological mastery of the LSS line and the traditional craftsmanship of Ferrari's skilled team breathes life into a selection of unique and extreme cars

Craftsmanship, passion and obsessive attention to detail: these are the main ingredients of the production process behind the Ferrari Monza SP2, the forefather – like its 'twin', the single-seater Monza SP1 – of the Prancing Horse's new 'Icona' Special Series. This car places a modern spin on the legendary racing barchettas produced by the Maranello-based manufacturer that dominated the World Sportscar Championship in the 1950s, and is assembled in a special section of the V12 production line, the LSS (Linea Serie Speciali, or Special Series Line), created especially for the production of the company's limited-edition models, present and future. 

It is here that Ferrari unites its unparalleled wealth of knowledge, gained through more than 70 years of experience, with the world-renowned skill of its craftsmen and its cutting-edge technological equipment – the result of the brand's continuous investment in research and development – to create an extreme car that is truly in a class of its own. The absence of a roof has enabled this model to be crafted with unique lines, unimaginable on a traditional spider. Some of the most exciting details of the Ferrari Monza include the wide doors that unfold upwards and the opening direction of the bonnet, which serves to further emphasise the car's powerful V12 engine. The body of the Ferrari Monza SP2 is made entirely of carbon fibre, and this material is also used for various elements of the interior. The model boasts the best power-to-weight ratio in its category for a car in barchetta configuration, and features an 810 hp V12 engine, which can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and from zero to 200 km/h in 7.9 seconds.
