Google executive Benjamin Sloss has gifted his wife, Christine, a Ferrari FXX K as a birthday present. Sloss already owns a Ferrari 599XX, which he acquired at an auction to raise funds in the wake of the 2012 Emilia earthquake disaster. Apart from that, his garage also consists of a Ferrari LaFerrari, a 458 Speciale, a Volcano Red McLaren 12C Spider, a Ford Raptor and a McLaren P1.
Sloss had taken his wife to the Fiorano racetrack in Italy for a track day with the 599XX on her birthday. Little did she know, that there she would be presented with a FXX K in the same yellow livery seen on Sloss’ other Ferraris. It was first revealed in December 2014 that Sloss will be getting the FXX K.
The latter is part of Ferrari’s ‘XX Project’, which includes track-legal prototypes produced in limited numbers and maintained by the Italian automaker. Based on the LaFerrari, it is said that the FXX K can reach 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds with a top-speed of 350 km/h. It costs around $3 million and less than 40 examples of the hypercar will be produced by the Italian company. Under the hood, the FXX K features the LaFerrari’s 6.3-litre V12 engine and an electric motor. When the two work in unison, the FXX K produces 1023 hp and over 900 Nm of torque.
