Ferrari FXX-K

• The Ferrari FXX-K is a high performance limited production track day car manufactured by automobile manufacturer Ferrari in Maranello, Italy. Designed by Marco Fainello, Adrián Méndez and architect Samuel Rodriguez at Centro Stile Ferrari, the FXX-K is based on the street-legal LaFerrari. It succeeds Ferrari's previous developmental track day offerings, the FXX (and the FXX Evo) and the 599XX (along with the 599XX Evo). In 2016, the FXX-K was awarded the Compasso d'Oro industrial design award.

Design

• FXX-K was the brand’s first, limited-production, track day hybrid; the model is based on the LaFerrari, street-legal hybrid sports car. The K in the car’s name refers to the kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) which is used to maximize performance. Like the previous FXX and 599XX, the cars are kept and maintained by Ferrari and are available to the owners on track day events.

Performance

• The hybrid powerplant used in the FXX-K has a total power output of 1,050 PS (772 kW; 1,036 hp) and over 900 N⋅m (664 lb⋅ft), of which 860 PS (633 kW; 848 hp) are delivered by the V12 ICE and 190 PS (140 kW; 187 hp) by the electric motor. The V12 engine has been tuned for track use as well as the HY-KERS system. With a dry weight of 1,165 kg (2,568 lb), the FXX-K has extremely effective downforce generation of 540 kg (1,190 lb) at 200 km/h (124 mph).

Production

• Production of the FXX-K began in 2015 and continued until 2017 with a total of 42 units produced. Like the previous FXX and 599XX, the cars will be kept and maintained by Ferrari and will be available to the owners on track day events.
