Ferrari have unveiled a special limited edition series in the ‘Icona’ cars. The first two of the series are the SP1 and SP2, both of which were unveiled for the company’s capital markets day event.
The design of the two cars is based on the tub type barchetta racing cars like the 166MM of seven decades ago with the typical race styling.
The two limited edition cars are a single and twin seater respectively, both open top and without physical windshield. Instead the cars use the dynamic effect of a deflector built in ahead of the dashboard to provide for a quiet cabin. The single seater uses a tonneau cover to enclose the far side.
Both the cars are designed for true track type performance. Powered by Ferrari’s 810PS V12 they can do the 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds and the 200 in 7.9 seconds.
The cars are built using carbon fibre for a lightweight shell and the body is formed as a Monolithic wing without roof or windshield to interrupt the airflow.
Other radical concepts we love about the cars are the use of scissor doors and front-hinged bonnets.
The car’s interior is also replete with carbon-fibre to continue the low weight theme.
