Now It’s Official; Ferrari Presents LaFerrari FXX K

Ferrari presents the track-focused LaFerrari… LaFerrari FXX K. Yeah, the name gained new consonants, as happen with Enzo (Ferrari FXX), but, besides of the ‘F’ a K also was added in the name referring to the KERS (kinetic energy recovery technology) used to boost performance on the track. The car developed by the XX programme was unveiled during the Finali Mondiali at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.

As already said, the LaFerrari FXX K boasts a total of 1050 hp, 860 hp comes from the naturally aspirated V12 engine and 190 hp delivered by the electric motor. which, together, they are able to put out a torque exceeding 900 Nm. Although there’s no data about performance yet, some reports say that the car will be able to sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds and exceed the top speed of the road-legal LaFerrari, which is over 350 km/h (217 mph).

To a better performance on track, Ferrari made dramatic changes on the exterior and modifications beneath the skin as well. The V12 has new camshafts, revised intake manifolds, a redesigned valve train as well as mechanical tappets. The exhaust system was replaced while the HY-KERS provides four different driving modes. These are Qualify Mode (maximum performance for a limited number of laps), Long Run (designed for longer stints on the track,), Manual Boost (provides maximum torque instantly) and Fast Charge (charges the car’s battery).

The exterior receives an insane visual to provide more aerodynamic and increase the downforce… it generates 500kg at 200km/h ( 1102.31lbs at 124 mph ). The LaFerrari FXX K is larger and wider than the regular model and presents a huge front spoiler as well as a new air splitter. The hood, headlight and taillight were redesigned. At the rear, you can find an enormous diffuser, new exhaust pipes besides of the side-fixed rear wing to help the standard active spoiler generate more downforce providing stability in fast corners and improving the performance.

Vehicle dynamics are further improved by the adoption of Pirelli slicks complete with sensors that monitor longitudinal, lateral and radial acceleration, as well as temperature and pressure. This ensures an accurate analysis of the interaction between the tyre and track surface, providing even more vital data to enable the traction control system to guarantee maximum performance.

Inside, the LaFerrari FXX K even boasts new race seats, instrument panel and steering wheel to give a total driving experience for that people able to have one.

The LaFerrari FXX K is limited in less than 40 units with a price of €2.5 million.
