I made fun of the new Ferrari Monza SP1 yesterday, but on a more serious note, it’s one of Maranello’s “Icona” series which, as the name suggests, will be cars based on iconic Ferrari models of the past.
Needless to say, only super-rich Ferrari fanbois will be able to afford them, but I have to say that if I had the dough, I’d not only buy the re-release of the 1959 Ferrari 250 (SWB) California, I’d kill anyone who stood in my way:
…as long as Ferrari produced an exact replica of the old 250’s body shape, that is, and not some bloated modernist excrescence that looked like a 10-year-old’s Play-Doh model.
Should be done in carbon fibre, so no one can try to pass it off as an original. Also, it needs something to justify what it would sell for. It probably would have a new design engine/driveline, but crooks are crafty, if there is enough money involved.
