Just like the Ferrari 599XX and FXX before it, the new FXX K is restricted to the racetrack and Ferrari’s wealthiest and most enthusiastic owners. Consequently, it’s virtually impossible for anyone other than owners and Ferrari employees to drive the marque’s latest multi-million dollar track today.
Thankfully, NM2255 on YouTube recently had the opportunity to strap on some GoPros into an FXX K for some flying laps around the famed Imola racetrack in Italy. The FXX K in question is finished in a sensational shade of matte white and during the clip, the driver can be seen almost maxing out the hypercar on Imola’s long straight by reaching seventh hear on multiple occasions.
As we’ve learnt from previous videos of the FXX K, it produces a howl even the finest racing cars couldn’t dream of matching.
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.
