The presentation of a new Ferrari model is always an event. So, when the Maranello car manufacturer unveils two creations from its “Special Projects” department at the Paris Motor Show, euphoria reigns. The Ferrari Monza SP1 (single-seater) and SP2 (two-seater), which highlight the brand’s new “Icon” range, are largely inspired by the open–topped racing cars of the 1950s, brought up to date with the latest technology.

Pirelli has therefore created a tyre in line with its Italian compatriot's precise requirements. First new feature: Ferrari wanted 21-inch diameter tyres. A first in the brand’s history! The challenge for Pirelli was to develop a tyre with the same level of performances as tyres previously developed with Ferrari, but in a new size. Particularly on the front axle, P Zero tyres must convey the specificities of the road to the driver.

Tyres also play a crucial part in the total weight of the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2. This is why Pirelli has completely redesigned the construction of its tyre by removing traditional reinforced textiles while maintaining a high level of lateral rigidity. A solution that has saved 1.2 kilograms, a crucial weight for speedsters such as the Monza SP1 and SP2.

The P Zero tyre sizes for the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 are 275/30 R21 at the front and 315/30 R21 at the rear.
