Most Extreme Ferrari Model Ever Presented: the 1050 HP FXX K
|   Monday, December 08, 2014
Ferrari has just unveiled the FXX K. This is a more efficient version of La Ferrari, but one that cannot be driven on public roads and will be offered to an exclusive group of customers.

Ferrari presented this model FXX K in a special event in Abu Dhabi. The letter K from its moniker is a reference to the KERS kinetic energy recovery system adopted for maximizing its track performance.

The model is a more efficient version of the fastest production model in Ferrari's offer and develops 1,050 hp.
The new creation of the Italians has a KERS hybrid system inspired by Formula 1 and has driving modes for running on the circuit in different regimes from qualification runs, depending on the type of competition in which it is used, to the absolute novelty Manual mode, which will allow the release of all its power by pressing a button.

On the wheel there is Manettino controller which adjusts the traction control system, the electronically controlled differential and the Racing Side Slip Angle Control system.

The HY-KERS system was made specifically for pure performance; the result is that the driver can control various function logics from the Manettino controller on the center console. It has 4 modes: Qualify, for max performance for a limited number of laps; Long Run for optimized performance; Manual Boost for instant maximum torque; Fast Charge for fast recharge of battery pack.

All these systems will help customers involved in Ferrari's XX program to supervise the limited range of FXX K models, under the Client-Test Driver application.
This program, developed in the past with other models FXX, is a quasi-mono-brand championship, ultra exclusive brand in which customers can to test new ideas and technologies that will arrive on the next series of brand cars in exchange for a fee. In other words, Ferrari FXX K is a laboratory on wheels for the brand's future technologies and will not get to compete in any tournament under FIA's watch, but will delight selected customers, picked by Ferrari representatives.

This statement is interesting when it comes from a brand almost synonymous with exclusivity, since they choose not to sell more than 7,000 units per year, and prefer to produce a car less than what they think they can sell just to preserve that exclusivity aura.

Because the FXX K will never run into a formal championship Ferrari was able to use extreme active aerodynamic elements, which can increase downforce by 50 percent in some cases. At a mechanical level, the car has an aspirated V12 engine rated at 860 hp, backed by a 190 hp electric motor. Together, the two engines make up a hybrid of 1,050 hp, and a torque of 900 Nm.

The engine displaces 6.2 liters and is significantly altered. Also, there is no limitation on the system's noise level. The model has tires with integrated sensors that monitor longitudinal, lateral and radial acceleration besides temperature and pressure of each tire individually. Data regarding dynamic performance, price and number of units to be produced has not been presented.
