Just after hosting the Belgian Grand Prix, Spa-Francorchamps also played host to the latest Ferrari Racing Days event where a multitude of the Italian marque’s track-only ‘XX’ models hit the famed circuit.
Despite fall raining during some of the day, many brand new Ferrari FXX K models hit the circuit and filled the surrounding forests with some truly extraordinary V12 sounds. The FXX K evidently produces a very different note to the Ferrari FXX and 599 XX and on up changes, spits flames like a true, unadulterated racing car.
The vehicle is based on the Ferrari LaFerrari and was unveiled in December 2014. It is said to cost around $3 million and its production will not exceed 40 units. The ‘K’ in the name stands for the KERS system that is used in the FXX K to maximize its power output.
The FXX K features the LaFerrari’s 6.3-litre V12 engine and an electric motor to produce a combined 1023 hp and over 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque. Apparently, the Ferrari FXX K can reach 0 to 100 km/h in around 2.5 seconds with a top-speed of 350 km/h. However, these numbers have not been confirmed by Ferrari as it closely guards the exact details of the XX prototypes as the latter borrow technology from the company’s F1 cars.
