Ferrari Monza SP1: The “Best of the Best” at the Red Dot Awards
When Ferrari first revealed their Monza SP1 and SP2 cars, we all knew they were flexing their design muscle.
While both are largely similar, the SP1 has been garnering a little more attention and for good reason too. How many major performance car manufacturers are still making single-seaters in this day and age?
And now we’ve gotten word that Ferrari’s going in for a twin win at the 2019 Red Dot Product Design Awards next month. Not only is the Monza SP1 winning the ‘Best of the Best’ award, but the entire design team under Flavio Manzoni are being recognised too.
For more on this story, check out the press release below.
The award ceremony of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 will be held in Essen, Germany on the 8th of July, when Ferrari will receive two prestigious accolades: the Red Dot: Best of the Best award for the Monza SP1 and an honorary recognition for the design team led by Flavio Manzoni.
Between 2015 and 2019, Ferrari has won no fewer than 14 distinctions in the Red Dot Award: Product Design, and the jury has bestowed the highest distinction in the competition, the Red Dot: Best of the Best on five models in a row. After the awards for the FXX-K, 488 GTB, J50 and Portofino, this year sees the Monza SP1 receive the accolade for its innovative and aesthetically outstanding design. In the history of the design award no other automotive manufacturer has ever achieved this result.
During the award ceremony, Flavio Manzoni and his design team will also receive the “Radius” challenge cup and be officially announced as “Red Dot: Design Team of the Year”.
Four days after the award ceremony, a special exhibition designed by Ferrari will be on show in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen alongside the “Design on Stage 2019” and “Milestones in Contemporary Design 2019” exhibitions, which feature all of the winning products in the Red Dot Award: Product Design.
