Ferrari premieres new FXX-K Evo

Ferrari premiered the new FXX-K Evo at the Finali Mondiali. The FXX-K Evo will be available as a limited-run model as well as an upgrade package for existing XX cars.

The cars developed since 2005 under the XX programme now epitomise Ferrari innovation and uncompromising performance. As with the Evo versions of the FXX and 599 XX, the Ferrari FXX-K Evo is filled with innovative concepts derived from Ferrari’s participation in motorsports: Formula 1, GT3, GTE and Challenge, the latter being the single-make championship bearing its name.

As with all XX cars, the FXX-K Evo is not homologated for road used and will only be used in the FXX dedicated competitive programme aimed purely at a small, highly-select group of Ferrari Clients: supercar enthusiasts eager to share the development of technologically-innovative content with the Ferrari technicians, through driving a closed-wheel laboratory car.

The new FXX-K  lighter than the previous FXX-K through the extensive use of carbon fibre, even with the addition of a twin-profile fixed rear wing . The twin-profile fixed wing works in synergy with the active rear spoiler. The two amplify each other, improving downforce coefficient by 23% which is the equivalent to a 75% increase on the road car, at 640kg at 200km/h, exceeding 830kg at the redline of the speedo.

The FXX-K Evo has new front brake air intakes and suspension specifically calibrated to the car’s new aerodynamic efficiency figures.

The Formula 1-inspired cabin has a conceptually-different steering wheel, with integrated gear-shifting paddles, designed to meet the high performance levels the FXX-K Evo achieves. The new steering wheel now also sports the KERS Manettino to improve both control of that system and overall ergonomics.

The rear video camera screen to the right of the driver has been replaced with a larger 6.5” version.

It also now displays data from a new telemetry system with clearer, more direct performance parameter and car status readouts. The driver can check the KERS status and the times being clocked by selecting from the various screen options available.

After undergoing around 5,000 km of development runs and 15,000 km of reliability test-drives, the FXX-K EVO will be a very active protagonist in the XX Programme in the 2018/2019 season which spans nine track outings in all between the start of March and the end of October. As is now traditional, the XX cars will also be taking part in the prestigious Finali Mondiali weekend which marks the end of each racing season.
