The Ferrari FXX-K is a high performance limited production track-only race car built by automobile manufacturer Ferrari in Maranello, Italy and designed by architect Flavio Manzoni director of Centro Stile Ferrari. The FXX-K is based on the street-legal LaFerrari. Production of the FXX-K began in 2015.

Overview

The name 'FXX-K' is actually Ferrari’s research and development program based around a laboratory car which is based on Maranello’s first hybrid, the LaFerrari. The K in the new car’s name is referring to the kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) which is used to maximize performance. The FXX-K will not be used in competing and was developed to be completely uncompromising. It uses a range of modern innovations that will ensure maximum performance anywhere. A total of 40 units have been built.

Specifications

The FXX-K produces a total of 1035 horsepower, of which 848 are delivered by the V12 ICE and 187 hp by the electric motor, with a maximum torque of over 900 Nm. The V12 engine has been tuned for track use as well as the HY-KERS system. The FXX-K has extremely effective downforce generation and the result is a downforce of 540 kg (1,190 lb) at 360 km/h (220 mph).
