The Ferrari Monza SP1 has won the Gold Award at the iF Design Awards 2019 ceremony held in Munich at the end of last week.
In presenting the accolade, the jury praised the “minimalist and elegant line” of what is the first ‘Icona’ model, a new concept of special limited-series cars from Ferrari announced towards the end of 2018.
The single-seater Monza SP1, which also recently won the “Most Beautiful Supercar of the Year” award at the International Automobile Festival in Paris, features an asymmetric layout as part of a modern day interpretation of a 1950s barchetta with a “classic perfection that also hints at the future”, as mentioned in the jurors’ decision for the award.
Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the car was first revealed alongside its two-seater sister SP2 model in September of last year.
The iF Design Award is considered to be one of the most important international design honours and has a history stretching back over six decades.
