The Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 were unveiled overnight, as the company presented its new five-year model plan to investors.

The single-seat Monza SP1 and two-seat Monza SP2 are the first models in the company's new super-exclusive range of Icona limited-edition models "aimed at dedicated clients and collectors".

Both cars are powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine generating 603kW of power at 8500rpm, and 719Nm of torque at 7000rpm.

With a body fashioned entirely from carbon-fibre, dry weight is rated at 1500kg for the SP1 and 1520kg for the SP2. These measurements are only accurate when the cars are fitted with optional lightweight elements.

Ferrari says the cars can complete the 0-100km/h dash in 2.9 seconds, hit 200km/h by 7.9 seconds, and will have a top speed in excess of 300km/h.

The Monza SP1 and SP2 are 4657mm long, 1996mm wide, and stand 1155mm tall. Given its dimensions, and the V12 engine powering it, the Monza is more-than-likely based on the same platform as the 812 Superfast.

Their barchetta bodies pay homage to the 1948 166 MM, as well as the 750 Monza and 860 Monza. Ingress and egress from the carbon-fibre-heavy cabin is accomplished via doors which swing upwards.

Without a windscreen to protect the occupants, the Monza SP1 and SP2 are fitted with a faring, or "virtual wind shield", ahead of the steering wheel and instrument panel, which diverts part of the airflow around the cabin to ensure some measure of driving comfort.

The low-slung passenger cell and the absence of any protective glass, reportedly give the driver and passenger "the feeling of blistering speed normally only experienced by Formula 1 drivers".

Ferrari has also collaborated with Loro Piana and Berluti to create a range of clothes and accessories to go with the Monza SP1 and SP2, including racing overalls, jersey, helmet, gloves, scarf and driving shoes.

No word yet on how much the Monza twins will cost, when they will be available, or how limited their production runs will be.
