At 124mph, the new Ferrari FXX K Evo produces 640kg of downforce. At the car’s “red-line speed”, it delivers 830kg. This is the essence of the most unhinged Ferrari to have been unleashed from Maranello. Downforce.
Last weekend, this extreme LaFerrari made its track debut at the Circuit of the Americas – a fine track – as part of Ferrari’s Racing Days. The FXX K Evo headlined over 100 Ferraris on circuit, delivering many, many exciting things.
Things like six Ferrari Challenge races, lapping sessions for Ferrari’s F1 programme (where clients buy old F1 cars and actually run them), and of course, the XX cars. Regular, road-going Ferraris were also in attendance. But all bowed at the might of the Evo.
Though the Evo’s V12 boasts no more power than a really-not-normal FXX K (1,036bhp), it features a fixed wing, and many fins and intakes, to bully the air surrounding the Evo into submission. We’re told that three of these FXX K Evo ‘packs’ were delivered to customers over the weekend.
Elsewhere, ten Ferrari F1 cars went on track, including the 1995 412 T2 and Alonso’s F138 from 2013. Take a look through this little gallery. And then imagine the noise an FXX K Evo makes at its “red-line speed”…
