2019 Ferrari 812 Monza leaked

By Scott Newman, 18 Sep 2018 News

2019 Ferrari 812 Monza leaked

Limited-edition 812-based retro supercar leaked

This is a car Ferrari would prefer you didn’t see, at least not yet.

We recently reported Ferrari was working on a topless version of its hardcore 488 as well as a limited-edition variant of the 812. The 488 Pista Spider was revealed at Monterey Car Week and now images and footage of the ‘Monza’ has leaked online.

Ferrari held a private event at Maranello for potential customers today, providing a sneak peek at this wild new model, said to be inspired by the 1957 250 Testa Rossa.

The engine and chassis are lifted from the 812 Superfast, meaning a 588kW/718Nm 6.5-litre V12, seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and rear-wheel drive, but the bodywork and interior is radically altered.

The Monza is available in two configurations: the single-seat SP1 or two-seat SP2, but the driver is solely the focus in each, with most controls being relocated to the centre console and a carbonfibre beam separating the two seats. SP1 variants cover the passenger area.

Sadly, no overall exterior images have yet leaked, but detail shots reveal a slimline, full-width taillight, Testa Rossa-style roll hoop (one for the SP1, two for the SP2), revised headlights and the elimination of the 812’s aero bridge bodywork at the front end.

Pricing and build numbers have not been officially confirmed, but numbers of US$2m each and a build run of 200 are the most common estimates. It’s believed that the cars have not yet been allocated to customers, but only Ferrari’s best clients will be in the running.

We’ll bring you more details when the Monza is officially revealed.
