Ferrari's CEO has confirmed the next Icona car will break cover this month.

Ferrari's new retro-inspired Icona supercar is the Italian automaker's worst-kept secret. Disguised prototypes have been spied multiple times and a leaked invite for the reveal event recently confirmed when it will debut. But now we finally have official confirmation from Ferrari's CEO Benedetto Vigna. During a third-quarter results call with investors reported by Automotive News, the CEO confirmed that Ferrari's new Icona car will be revealed this month as a successor to the Monza SP1 and SP2.

An exact debut date was not confirmed, but the leaked invite suggests it will debut on November 15 at a private event before being shown to the public on November 21.

Interestingly, Ferrari’s second Icona car was originally going to launch in 2022, but Chief Financial Officer Antonio Picca Piccon said the launch was moved forward due to the “strong customer needs for a new Icona, which we felt the responsibility to satisfy.” Piccon added that deposits for the new Icona will be taken in 2022.

Ferrari’s Icona series is aimed at “brand ambassadors” who already own multiple Ferraris. As such, the leaked media invite was sent to a Ferrari Monza owner in a presentation box with a gated gear shifter as a gift. Ferrari describes Icona models as having the “timeless design of iconic Ferraris reinterpreted with innovative materials and state-of-the-art technologies.” Revealed in 2018, the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 were inspired by the 1948 166 MM Barchetta and 1954 750 Monza open-top racers.

Production is limited to just 499 examples and deliveries are still ongoing. Ferrari hasn't said which legendary car from the automaker's past inspired the new Icona and its name is still being kept a secret. However, it's widely believed to be a modern-day interpretation of the Ferrari 330 P4 Le Mans race car from the 1960s.

Prototypes based on the LaFerrari Aperta have been spied with a bespoke rear spoiler, wider fenders, and repositioned side mirrors inspired by the 330 P4. Instead of the LaFerrari's hybrid setup, the new Icona will reportedly be powered by the 812 Competizione's 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12. It could be even rarer and more expensive than the Monza, with rumors suggesting it will be limited to around 300 units and cost over $2.5 million. We won't have to speculate much longer because Ferrari's new Icona project will debut in just a few weeks.

New Ferrari Purosangue SUV Spied in Maranello With Production Body Panels

If Enzo Ferrari were still with us here today, Il Commendatore would throw a fit over the number of doors of the Purosangue. The man who founded and headed the Prancing Horse until his death in 1988 wouldn’t be amused by the wagon-esque side view either, but when you think about it, Ferrari couldn’t raise the ride height to Porsche Cayenne levels of ground clearance because that would’ve spoiled the handling.
