Ferrari debuted the extreme FXX-K Evoluzione track-only hypercar – the most expensive model on the market for the whooping £3million. This far exceeds the price tag of Bugatti – the current title holder of the world’s most expensive car.
Named FXX-K Evo, the new model is based on the £1million road-legal LaFerrari – and is the ultimate Top Trumps model. It is just as powerful as Ferrari’s current Formula One car. Its 6.3-litre V12 engine uses the same petrol-electric Kinetic Energy Recovery System – also known as KERS – that F1 machines have been fitted with in recent years.
The combination of two power sources generates a staggering 1,036bhp. Coupled with the new extreme looks, the FXX-K Evo is a real head-turner. Its sharpened and flared piece of bodywork boasts a win-profile rear spoiler, two side wings and a central fin to produce incredible levels of pin-it-to-the-road grip.
In addition to updated aerodynamics, a whopping 640kg of downforce at a speed of 124mph is generated. In its current configuration, the FXX-K Evo is deemed far too extreme to be fitted with number plates, restricting owners to only using it in competition events or driving days at race circuits.
What’s even more, Ferrari hand-picks the owners of the FXX range, and the new model will initially be offered only to existing FXX-K customers who want to upgrade from their current 1,000bhp-hypercar.
£3million may seem a bit extreme for a car that can’t even be driven off the track, but millionaires and billionaires are already showing interest in upgrading on the non-Evoluzione model – of which around 40 were made – or choose one of the handful of all-new models that will be built to Evo specification. Owners will be able to work in tandem with Ferrari’s design team to customize the interior for a truly unique driving experience.
