Ferrari has unveiled its new supercar under the XX program called the FXX-K Evo. Like its predecessors, this will be a track-only vehicle and will have an extremely limited-run which will be available for a select group of clients.
The FXX-K Evo has a similar silhouette to its previous model with the more obvious difference of an upgraded aero package. Compared to the latter, this one features 2 winglets upfront, larger rear air ducts, and a huge fixed rear wing that can produce 640 kg worth of downforce at 200 km/h.
Speaking of its speed, Ferrari has kept mum about its top speed and 0 – 100 km/h time. But its 1,035 hp 6.2L V12 engine—aided by a 187 hp electric motor—means that the FXX-K Evo has the guns to keep up with the fastest supercars available in the market today.
Ferrari also boasts that the FXX-K Evo shed some weight thanks to the brand’s carbon-fiber components from its Formula 1 (F1) program. Although they didn’t mention by how much, the previous model weighed at just 1,165 kg. To put that in perspective, the FXX-K Evo could weigh as much as the Mazda MX-5 give or take a few kilos.
Inside is a no frills cockpit designed to improve overall ergonomics. This is highlighted by an F1 inspired steering wheel with all the knobs, including the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) button, to customize engine and vehicle characteristics. Meanwhile, a large 6.5-inch LCD screen displays important telemetry data including lap times and KERS status.
