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.

Clearly visible modifications made to the car, the most notable being the full length rear wing, suggest we might be looking at a prototype for the FXX K’s Evolution Package upgrade. Customers will also benefit from at least six drive events to be held on certain Formula One tracks. The auto is powered by a 6.3 liter V-12 engine rated at 1,036 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Also based on a road-legal hybrid supercar, the P1 GTR comes in a similar package: an aerodynamically enhanced body with tons of added parts for increased downforce, plus a massive wing atop its rear end. $3.1 million. *** The HY-KERS system has been upgraded as well, with drivers having access to four different settings ***. This bad boy carried a 6-liter V-12 engine that put 700 horsepower to the pavement at 9,000 rpm. The aerodynamics were modification after one year of simulations and wind tunnel testing, with Ferrari claiming that the car now boasts downforce figures that are very close to GT3 and GTE cars. The FXX K and the P1 GTR might not meet on the track too often, but the latter is the closest thing to the FXX K customers can buy. Only 10 units were built in total, with the first two carrying the name “F40 LM” and the last eight carrying the “F40 Competizione” name. Ferrari has never released pricing for the FXX K, but word has it that the supercar retails from around Javascript must be enabled for the correct page display. More power and grip needs to be backed by increased stopping power, and these new brakes will make sure the FXX K is on its best behavior on all race tracks, no matter how tight or quick they are. On top of the base model’s production life, the FXX program continued for an additional two years under the “FXX Evoluzione” name.
