Ferrari FXX-K Evo Is Maranello’s Latest Winged Beast

Needs more wing.

The ultimate pursuit of speed should never be limited by a lack of downforce to keep a car on the road.

Ferrari wanted to prove this point so they went ahead and created the Evo version of their LaFerrari-based FXX-K track car – a purpose-built racer that wasn’t exactly slow to begin with.

The result? More wings, less weight and enough aerodynamic aids to keep the car from taking off like a jet. The Maranello outfit’s latest hypercar debuted at the Finali Mondiali race in Tuscany and features a host of performance enhancements lifted directly from Formula 1, GT3 and the GTE racing series in order to make it go faster.

A closer look at the figures shows that the FXX-K Evo possess a 23 percent boost in downforce coefficient when compared to the standard FXX-K. This number is enhanced even more to the tune of 75 percent when compared to the LaFerrari road car. At maximum speed the re-worked aero can generate up to 830kg of down force.

Even the sleek lines of the LaFerrari’s active rear spoiler isn’t enough to keep the designers happy, who added a twin-profile fixed wing that connects to a central fin just like in Formula 1. Out back there’s more vents and diffusers designed to exhaust gases and air quickly.

Now for the bad news. The FXX-K Evo is designed for Ferrari’s private track sessions with customers only so there’ll likely be zero chance of spotting one on public roads. Add to that the strict guidelines stipulating “[Car] will not be used in competition outside its dedicated programme” and you have one serious unicorn that will only ever be seen by those who can afford it.

The FXX-K Evo is powered by a 773kW petrol-electric engine which produces 900Nm of torque send to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
