Ferrari has revealed its hotly anticipated and hugely enhanced track version of the new LaFerrari hypercar this week.
As with the Enzo-based FXX before it, the FXX K is what Ferrari terms a ‘laboratory car’, an ongoing and customer-inclusive program that contributes to the development of future models.
And, again like the FXX - and not unlike Frankenstein’s monster - the FXX K is significantly more insane than its donor body, churning out a huge 772kW.
But, unlike those two rivals, the FXX K cannot be registered for the road. As with the FXX and the 599XX, this extra-hot Ferrari cannot be registered for the road - and isn’t even allowed to be raced.
To make sure nobody tries any funny business, all FXX K cars are kept in Ferrari’s care, only ever to be rolled out at specific events for the company’s ‘Client Test Drivers’.
Helping the FXX K produce its huge numbers are modifications to the petrol-electric hybrid system’s V12 engine, gaining an extra 44kW through tweaks that include new camshafts and mechanical tappets.
There’s also revised intake manifolds, and the exhaust’s silencers have also been binned.
Ferrari’s HY-KERS energy recuperation system is again featured, modified for greater power and more on-track capability.
The most obvious changes however are to the LaFerrari’s sleek styling, enhanced to deliver a huge 50 percent improvement in ‘low drag’ downforce configuration, and a 30 percent improvement in the most aggressive setting.
Keen to get one? Ferrari isn’t saying what entry into the program is worth, but reports suggest upwards of US$3 million…
