  • Both use the company’s most powerful V12 engine
  • Both cost upwards of £3m
Ferrari has unveiled two new limited-edition cars at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The SP1 and SP2 are the first cars launched under Ferrari’s new ‘Icona’ line-up.

Cars under the ‘Icona’ brand pay homage to Ferraris of the past. The SP1 and SP2 hark back to Ferrari’s Barchettas of the 1950s – the 750 Monza and 850 Monza. You’ll only be able to get your hands on one if you’re a loyal Ferrari customer, and you’ll have to have a spare £3m floating around.
Perhaps surprisingly, both cars are road legal. The SP1 is a single-seater, and the SP2 is a two-seater.

Each model is unique, with the bodywork made from carbon fibre and Kevlar. And there’s no roof or windscreen. Apparently instead of a windscreen, there’s a virtual one, which manipulates air flow around the driver.
Both cars are based on the 812 Superfast and powered by the company’s powerful 6.5-litre V12 engine, which delivers 800 horsepower. It has a claimed 0-62mph time of 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of around 180mph.

We've got more information on all the cars from the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
