Ferrari has unveiled the LaFerrari based FXX K ahead of its debut during the Finali Mondiali event in Abu Dhabi.
First known during the development stage as LaFerrari XX, the FXX K will never be used in competition as it was “developed to be completely uncompromising, incorporating technological innovations that will guarantee an unprecedented driving experience to the exclusive group of Client-Test Drivers with whom the Prancing Horse will roll out a test programme over the coming two years”.
The K in its moniker is a reference to the KERS kinetic energy recovery system it adopts.
The powertrain carries over in large from the standard LaFerrari with the electric motor now delivering 187bhp (up from 160bhp) and the 6.3-litre V12 delivers now 848bhp (up from 789bhp) for a total output of 1,035bhp (up from the standard car’s 950bhp). The torque is down by 51 lb-ft at 664 lb-ft.
The optimized HY-KERS system has four different modes. The Qualify mode gives maximum performance within a limited number of laps, the Long Run mode optimizes performance consistency, the Manual Boost mode provides instant maximum torque delivery and the Fast Charge mode is suitable for a faster recharge of the car’s battery.
Visually the track-only FXX K features a new aerodynamic package that includes at the front two-part splitter with vertical fins along the flanks, new side skirts, new tail section with a mobile spoiler having small wing on each side and a giant diffuser.
As a result the car has 50 percent more downforce than the road going model.
Other goodies include Pirelli racing slicks, carbon-ceramic brake discs, recalibrated electronic differential, traction control, ABS and Racing SSC (Side Slip Angle Control).
Pricing and production details are not known, but it will be clearly more expensive and unique than the already sold out LaFerrari.
