Ferrari confirms crossover, hybrids and 6-cyl engines

2019 Ferrari Monza SP2

The new Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 have been unveiled on occasion of the company's Capital Market's Day at the factory in Maranello. Just last night-before today's unveiling of the limited-edition Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2-the Italian carmaker opened the doors to its new Centro Stile studio.

The roofless barchettas are inspired by the 1948 166 MM and the 750 and 860 Monza that "helped build the Ferrari legend in the 1950s by delivering numerous victories in the World Sports Car Championship".

The pair of supercars are limited-edition special-series coupes-the SP1 being a single-seating ode to solipsism, and the SP2 a more traditional two-seater.

The company will increasingly make hybrid cars "as the years unfold to meet specific regulatory requirements but also to satisfy customer desires for significantly improved emissions while retaining the driving emotions that render Ferraris simply unique", he said. Because they have been inspired by the most evocative Ferraris of the 1950s and feature the most advanced sports auto technology available today.

Bailey has made 186 of 211 field-goal attempts, an accuracy greater than 88 percent that trails only Baltimore's Justin Tucker. Minnesota Vikings are expected to sign veteran Dan Bailey after waiving rookie kicker Daniel Carlson , according to reports.

Camilleri and his team outlined a plan to show how a brand known for its racing pedigree and roaring combustion engines will shift to making a utility vehicle and hybrid cars and boost margins to more than 38 percent without sacrificing exclusivity. The front wing and bonnet is a single panel made entirely from carbon-fibre which is hinged at the front like racing cars of yesteryears. Both offer the best weight-to-power ratio of any barchetta according to Ferrari and feature a virtual windscreen, rollover hoops, extensive carbon-fiber body and bits, fancy stacked headlights and thin wraparound taillights, and a set of hot wheels to boot.

Being based on the 812 Superfast, the heart of the Monza is the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 derived from the 6.3-liter of the LaFerrari. They both have a dry weight of about 3,300 pounds, which makes them good for a sprint to 62 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds and 124 miles per hour in 7.9 seconds. Dry weight is 1,500 kg for the Ferrari Monza SP1 and 1,520 kg for the Ferrari Monza SP2. Both cars are made nearly entirely out of carbon-fibre, including the chassis and the bodywork.

Ferrari shares were steady at 1145 GMT, recovering from earlier losses.

Ferrari declined to give any forecast for sales other than saying that more than half of those would be sportscars.
