It all started with the LaFerrari. Ferrari introduced the street legal racing machine on March 5th, 2013, at the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS). I was there and I vividly remember standing in front of the car with my jaw dropped, totally amazed by this stunning vehicle.
Then at the end of 2014, Ferrari introduced the FXX-K as a response to McLaren’s P1 GTR. The FXX-K is based on the LaFerrari and is the successor to the FXX (Enzo based). The K in FXX-K stands for KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System). This directly references the electric motor in LaFerrari that provides an instant hit of extra power and torque, mirroring the set-up on modern Formula 1 cars. Without any doubt, I’m sure I wasn’t the only person who thought “That’s it. It can’t get better”.
But I was wrong. They managed to somehow ‘improve’ what I had seem at the GIMS and the later introduced FXX-K. Unveiled in Florence on October 28, 2017, the FXX-K Evo was displayed to the world during Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary celebration. Two years later, I am still fascinated by this beast and there is no doubt that this is a hypercar that belongs to every private Ferrari collection.
The Ferrari FXX-K Evo offers 23 percent more downforce than the FXX-K. Compared to the LaFerrari, it is more than 75 percent. The FXX-K Evo has a fixed wing with a “twin profile”, which is to work together with the active rear spoiler. The active rear spoiler itself receives a revised control logic. Inside, there is a new steering wheel and a screen enlarged to 6.5 inches that displays all telemetry data. The engine is the same 1,050 PS-V12 monster as in the FXX-K. Top-speed is reached with 350 km/h. (860 PS are coming from the F140 engine and 190 PS from the electrical engine.)
The FXX-K Evo was available in very limited numbers (Ferrari didn’t give an exact number, but it probably won’t be more than a handful). An upgrade kit for FXX-K owners is also available. As with all XX cars, the following also applies in this case: Road registration? Not really…the cars are too brutal for the streets.
As usual, the FXX-K Evo is only offered to the most loyal Ferrari customers, as all the rest of the XX cars (FXX, 599XX, FXX-K & FXX-K Evo), which are part of Ferrari’s “Corse Clienti” program. This means that the cars are maintained by Ferrari and the owners fly throughout the year to various race tracks around the world to take part in special driving events (9 events in total) organized by a separate department of the Italian manufacturer. One the one hand, it’s strange to buy a vehicle that you keep in the hands of the manufacturer. But on the other, a driving instructor and a race supervisor are not a stupid idea at 1050 PS coming from a 6.3 L naturally aspirated F140 V12 engine.
The FXX-K was around EUR 2.2 million, while the Evo-Kit to upgrade the FXX-K is around EUR 250,000. The price of the Ferrari FXX-K Evo is roughly set at EUR 3 million.
Not officially revealed but should have been around EUR 3 million. The current market price is obviously much higher. Contact us if you are interested in one. We have one ready for you.
40 FXX-K (all have the option to upgrade with the Evo-Kit) and a probable handful number of factory “born” FXXK-EVO’s.
When to drive:
Obviously, only during the track days of the XX program of Ferrari
What we love about the car:
The car has GT3 characteristics but Ferrari still makes it accessible to its best clients to drive such a racing machine and above all… to feel what it means to drive Ferarri. I can’t think of a better driving experience than that.
