Ride of the Week: FERRARI FXX-K

Just when you thought the Ferrari LaFerrari couldn’t get any better, the Italian auto maker unveiled the even more beastly Ferrari FXX-K.

Meant only for the tracks, this 2-door is sporting a 6.3-liter V12 engine that pumps out an Earth rattling 1,035 horsepower. The model is part of the brand’s ongoing track special series, which started with the Enzo-based Ferrari FXX and included our personal favorite – the Ferrari 599XX. The vehicle has been equipped with the same HY-KERS drivetrain system found in the LaFerrari, but has added new camshafts, the removal of the exhaust silencers, and improved intake manifolds for more power. Pirelli P-Zero Slik tires outfitted with embedded acceleration sensors reside on all 4 corners, and new aerodynamic features increase downforce by up to 50%, helping drivers stay glued to the track at high speeds. There are also four different driving modes to choose from including Qualify, Long Run, Fast Charge and Manual Boost. The vehicle is part of the brand’s “Client-Test Driver” program, which lets paying customers test out many of Ferrari’s new technologies. With that being said, you probably won’t be able to own one, but you could possibly end up driving one.
