The Ferrari Portofino, the 488 Pista and the SP38 win the iF Design Award
Maranello, 15 March 2019 – The Ferrari Monza SP1 received the most prestigious award at the iF Design Awards 2019 ceremony held in Munich today. In presenting the Gold Award, the jury praised the minimalist and elegant line of the forerunner in a new concept of cars, known as “Icona”, unveiled in a special limited Prancing Horse series.
The Ferrari Monza SP1, like the two-seater SP2, offers a reinterpretation of the 1950s ‘barchetta’ with a “classic perfection that also hints to the future”, as reported in the motivation for the award. The result is a single-seater road car that stands out because of its unique asymmetric layout, the ‘monolithic’ profile of the bodywork and the purity of its highly iconic design.
In Munich, Ferrari collected another three Design Awards for the Ferrari Portofino, the 488 Pista and the one-off SP38. These awards are further recognition of the continuous stylistic research carried out by Ferrari Styling Centre, which, in its car range as well as in the limited series and in the one-off programme, creates increasingly innovative design solutions combining aesthetics and technology.
The iF Design Award is one of the most important awards, synonymous for 66 years with design excellence.
