Ferrari NV unveiled an open-top supercar that it billed as the closest thing to a Formula 1 racer ever built for the public market.

The carbon-fiber, 810-horsepower Monza will come in one-seat and two-seat versions, Ferrari’s marketing head, Nicola Boari, and chief designer Flavio Manzoni said Tuesday at the company’s headquarters in Maranello, Italy. Ferrari will manufacture fewer than 500 of the 12-cylinder machines, which will be capable of reaching 100 kilometers per hour in less than three seconds.
