FLASH: This article is about the most extreme interpretation of the LaFerrari’s architecture, Wild!
In Y 2016 just after Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) introduced the FXX K, Enrico Galliera, Ferrari commercial director, explained the philosophy of the FXX K cars.
In its talks with the TopGear, Mr. Galliera said:
“Y’know, the philosophy of the company is that as soon as we introduce a new product, we then immediately start working on how we can improve it next time. So, even for the FXX K, we are thinking about potential evolutions, but we don’t have it yet. As soon as our technical development identify something that can make a big improvement, we will evaluate it, but at the moment we don’t have anything… We are now completing the final deliveries of FXXK, and once we finish build and delivery, then we will really start work on how to improve it.”
While we saw the evolution of the FXX K, Mr. Galliera’s comment tells us that nothing prevents Ferrari from updating the FXX K Evo.
In the past Ferrari picked up massive amounts of telemetry data from customers and racing drivers of the FXX K.
This data showed that, at high speed, the HyperSuper Car was not as planed and as composed as intended, eventually leading to the development of the FXX K Evo. It gained the latest aerodynamic trickery for maximum down-force.
That is why it has a sizable back wing, F1-styled central fin, and differently shaped bumpers. With such measures in place, the Ferrari FXX K Evo can produce more than 600 kilograms of downforce at 124 mph. That’s 25% more than the FXX K.
I tried to figure out any differences between the Ferrari FXX K Evo, and the version currently testing at the Nurburgring. I was not successful. There are not any differences.
This does not mean that Ferrari sent the car to lap the ’Ring a few times just for the sake of it.
The engineers at the Maranello are testing something: maybe a propulsion system, a transmission, or a new suspension setup. Whatever it is, Ferrari does not have to share any of it with us right away. But when and if it does, you will read about it in this column.
I know that my readers wants to see the fastest Ferrari lap the Nurburgring. While nothing is impossible in the world today, it is doubtful that this camouflaged FXX K Evo prepares for such a feat. It is more likely that Ferrari magicians seek further improvement on the performance of their most extreme car.
Some motorsport journalists speculate that Ferrari decided to develop the road-going version of the FXX K Evo.
Considering that the company did not want to hear anything about it in the past, this is unlikely now too. As there is just 1 road-legal Ferrari from the XX line of cars. It iss the Enzo-based FXX that went through the conversion.
So, if by some change of the Italian’s hearts, Ferrari works on a road-legal FXX K Evo, be advised that that it would be the quickest and the fastest Ferrari of all time.
Again, Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
Ferrari is the Aristocrat of the automotive sector.
HeffX-LTN overall technical outlook for RACE is Bullish across the board, and there is very little resistance here and none above 140.26. All of our Key indicators are Very Bullish in here.
Editors Note: Spy photographers at the Nurburgring have caught Ferrari testing the FXX K Evo. As no 1 expects the Maranello Outfit to create an even fiercer version of it, the wholly camouflaged FXX K Evo is a surprising sight. However, the whole ideology behind the Ferrari XX line of cars opens a whole world of possibilities. Created for specific customers that are a part of Ferrari’s Corse Clienti race program, the FXX K Evo cars are, more or less, a laboratory on wheels, and a test-bed for Ferrari’s latest technologies. A lot of the technology that Ferrari develops in its racing series (F1, GT3, or Challenge series) eventually glows to the FXX series of cars. It has been the same since Y 2004 when Ferrari introduced the 1st Enzo-based FXX.
