The supercars are inspired by the racing barchettas of the past.

Ferrari has unveiled a new category in their product line called "Icona" and the first cars are inspired by the racing barchettas of the past. First up, the Monza SP1. These racing-inspired road cars will make thorough use of carbon fiber and feature the most powerful V12 they've ever built with a 0-62 time of 2.9 seconds, a 0-124 mph time of 7.9 seconds, and a top speed of over 186 mph.

The company has compared the speed of the cars to the experience a racing driver would feel in an F1 car and it features a monolithic form that is sleeker and a bit more understated than what you normally see from Ferrari today. The bodyshell of the car is made entirely out of carbon fiber, which extends to both cars' interiors. The company has also created a "Virtual Wind Shield" that can cut through airflow to create a more comfortable driving experience.
