Ferrari unveiled for the first time a track-only version of its LaFerrari flagship, the FXX K. The unveiling took place at the Finali Mondiali event held at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina circuit. The event is Ferrari’s annual celebration of the end of the motorsport season and brings together all of its separate sporting divisions, including the XX program.
Ferrari’s new FXX K, where the K refers to the special kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) fitted to the car, is strictly built for the race track and cannot be registered for use on public roads. The powertrain used is similar to the one found in the LaFerrari, in that it features a naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V-12 paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and electric drive system. The engine alone is rated at 838 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque, and with the electric drive system peak output rises to 1,035 hp and torque is said to be more than 663 lb-ft. By comparison, the stock LaFerrari is rated at 950 hp and more than 660 lb-ft of torque, and McLaren’s rival to the FXX K, the P1 GTR, comes with 986 hp.
