The Ferrari FXX K (AKA the track-only LaFerrari) has finally made its debut.
Heck, I have a hunch customers won’t even be allowed to take the FXX K home over night, which speaks volumes about what the Prancing Horse badge stands for nowadays. Behind the lightweight, ten-spoke rims, which are also brand-new, lurk larger, carbon-ceramic brake discs and race-spec Brembo calipers. The horsepower increase is possible due to a host of upgraded, race-bred internals, including new camshafts, a revised valvetrain with mechanical tappets, and redesigned intake manifolds. Also, the car has been described as the "most extreme production-derived car in Ferrari’s history" as it will deliver no less than 1,050 HP - or 100 HP more than the standard LaFerrari. The laboratory-car is based on Maranello’s first hybrid model and will grace the world’s tracks from next year onwards. While the street-legal LaFerrari needs 2.8 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standing start, the more powerful engine of the FXX K and its reduced curb weight should enable it to achieve the same sprint in about 2.6 clicks. I understand that I can unsubscribe at any time. Although Ferrari has yet to release performance specs for the FXX K, the most powerful Prancing Horse ever developed is likely to be the quickest as well. 1950 A RED MILLE MIGLIA. Speaking of tires, the FXX K rides on Pirelli racing slicks that feature sensors that monitor longitudinal, lateral and radial acceleration, as well as temperature and pressure. *** The hybrid drivetrain has been upgraded to deliver 1,036 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque ***. As if the power wasn’t enough, the aerodynamics of the car were tuned to produce 617 to 1,389 pounds of downforce, depending on your speed. The Ferrari FXX K is fast with a zero to 60 MPH time of 2.4 seconds. The rear diffuser also looks different and is sporting some extended sections.
