Okay, maybe not with it, but a car this powerful and sexy certainly deserves to be worshipped, and that’s the point I was trying to get across with the headline.
Ferrari just unveiled their ‘Ferrari FXX-K’ model, the brainchild of an elite research and development team focused on building a laboratory-based vehicle unfettered by the constraints of racing’s ruling body. The result of their work is easily the most badass Ferrari I’ve ever seen in my life.
FXX-K, the new research and development programme being embarked upon by Ferrari with a highly select group of Client-Test-drivers, will be unveiled next weekend during the Finali Mondiali at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.
The programme centres around a laboratory-car based on Maranello’s first hybrid, LaFerrari. The K in the new car’s moniker refers to the KERS kinetic energy recovery technology used to boost performance on the track. The FXX-K joins the non-competitive XX Programmes managed by the Corse Clienti Department in Maranello and thus far aimed at the owners of the exclusive FXXs and 599XXs.
Unfettered by homologation and racing regulations, the FXX K was developed to be completely uncompromising, incorporating technological innovations that will guarantee an unprecedented driving experience.
The car’s enormous potential can be summed up in a few short but telling figures: an overall power output of 1,050 cv of which 860 are punched out by the conventional V12 engine with the remaining 190 cv delivered by the electric motor, plus total maximum torque exceeding 900 Nm.
A focus on delivering maximum efficiency at every stage of every track lap has resulted in extensive but integrated work on the entire car body in terms of both active and passive aerodynamics.
But enough talking about the car, you just want to see it, right?
