If the Ferrari 812 Superfast isn't enough for well-heeled buyers, we present to you the Monza SP1. Ferrari's latest limited production roadster was leaked earlier this morning and combines retro-centric styling with a lightweight chassis and a badass V12 engine.

The Monza SP1 is strictly a one-seat roadster, with the driver positioned on the left-hand side of the vehicle. According to Automotive News, the Monza SP1 was inspired by previous Ferrari models including the 166 MM Barchetta and the 750 Monza. But while the styling may be vaguely familiar, the technology and powertrain in this beast is decidedly modern.

It features an aluminum frame that is draped with gorgeous carbon fiber bodywork. Power comes from the same 6.5-liter, naturally-aspirated V12 engine found in the 812 Superfast. It's good for around 800 horsepower at 8,500rpm and 530 lb-ft of torque at 7,000rpm. We'd imagine that the drive configuration and transmission will remain the same, which means that it will be strictly rear-wheel drive with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

This will be enough to send the lightweight roadster from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, while it will hit 124 mph in only 7.9 seconds.

We should also not that if you'd feel lonely driving by yourself in the Monza SP1, there will also be a two-seat Monza SP2 so that you can use to cruise the boulevard in style with your significant other. But who are we kidding; this is a limited production run Ferrari (only 500 will be made, and they've all been spoken for), which means that it will probably be a glorified "garbage queen" that will rarely -- if ever -- see a public road and will be sold 50 years from now for many multiples of its original asking price.

Speaking of pricing, if other limited-edition Ferraris are an indicator, the Monza SP1 and Monza SP2 will be priced well north of $1 million. However, we're get more information straight from Ferrari when the cars are officially revealed to the public on October 2nd in Paris.
