Ferrari Combines 21st Century Engineering with 1950s Style

Ferrari, an Italian luxury sports car manufacturer, was founded in 1939 by Enzo Ferrari. The company is known for its participation in racing and production of fast, luxurious automobiles.

The average Ferrari comes with a six figure price tag, but that has not stopped its demand among luxury car collectors. The number of Ferraris shipped has doubled in the past decade. 

Recently, Ferrari announced “Icona,” a new vehicle line that is quite different than the modern-day luxury car.

The line will include a pair of sports cars that are a combination of 21st-century engineering and the classic racing style from the 1940s and 1950s. Both automobiles, the Monza SP1 and Monza SP2, will include a 6.5-liter V12 engine, the most powerful Ferrari has ever made.  

Both cars are are in the style of those that helped win multiple World Sports Car Championships in the 1940s and 1950s — the 1948 166 MM.

Designers Loro Piana and Berluti worked with Ferrari to design a “gentlemen-driver inspired” classic helmet, scarf, driving shoes, racing overalls, gloves, and scarf to match the “Icona” line.

Both automobiles are rumored to cost seven figures. The Guardian reports Ferrari will only produce 500 Monza SP1’s and SP2’s, which are already sold out.
