Default Ferrari reveals 1021bhp LaFerrari FXX K






Quote:
This is the new Ferrari FXX K, a harder, track-focused version of LaFerrari with more power, race-inspired styling and even more tech.
Headline figures include a power output of 1021bhp. It’ll be seen in action from next year, although it will only be available to an elite group of owner-drivers who will be entered into Ferrari’s XX driver development programme.

The FXX K name refers to the car's KERS kinetic energy recovery system, which works in conjunction with the standard car's 6.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine to produce a total system output of 1021bhp and more than 664lb ft of torque. That's 71bhp more than the standard LaFerrari, with 835bhp coming from the V12 engine and 188bhp from the electric motor.

Ferrari hasn't revealed any performance data for the McLaren P1 GTR rival, but expect improvements on the LaFerrari's 0-62mph sprint time of less than three seconds, as well as its 217mph-plus top speed. As with LaFerrari, drive is channeled through a seven-speed paddle-shift dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The FXX K measures 194mm longer and 59mm wider than the LaFerrari, at 4896mm and 2051mm respectively, but shares the same height of 1116mm as well as its 2650mm wheelbase. There's no word on whether Ferrari has dropped any weight from the LaFerrari, which tips the scales at around 1345kg.

Stylistically, the FXX K looks like a race-inspired evolution of LaFerrari's shape. A new twin-profile spoiler and large splitter – which is 30mm lower than on LaFerrari and includes a central gap to channel air flow– can be seen at the front. This works in conjunction with the larger side sills running down the flanks of the car to stop air gathering underneath.
At the rear, a large, twin-pronged permanent spoiler features alongside a secondary mobile spoiler which can extend on the move. The distinctive shape of the rear is designed to boost downforce, and is helped by the new rear diffuser.

Ferrari says this has helped improve downforce by 50 per cent compared to LaFerrari, resulting in the FXX K producing 540kg of downforce at 124mph.
Inside, the FXX K does away with many of the luxuries of LaFerrari, although it keeps a digitised instrument cluster.

The FXX K sits on special slick Pirelli P-Zero tyres, which incorporate sensors to measure acceleration, temperature and pressure. Carbon-ceramic brakes, manufactured by Brembo, also feature. The car's traction control, Side Slip Angle Control and electronic differential have been specially calibrated to suit the performance rubber, while drivers can control ABS settings via the steering wheel.

Whereas the standard LaFerrari featured a double wishbone suspension set-up front and rear, the FXX K instead adopts a multi-link rear set-up.
Key changes made to the LaFerrari's V12 engine include new camshafts, a modified valve train, redesigned intake manifolds, and the use of mechanical rather than hydraulic tappets. The car's exhaust system has also been modified.

Similarly, the HY-KERS system has been upgraded, giving drivers the option of controlling power with four different modes with the 'Manettino' controller.

Qualify mode provides maximum power for a short number of laps, while Long Run optimises performance for longer stints. Manual Boost mode delivers instant maximum torque, while Fast Charge mode can be used to recharge the car's battery.

The Maranello-based firm says as the FXX K isn't homologated, it will "never" be used in competition. In a statement, Ferrari said the car was developed "to be completely uncompromising, incorporating technological innovations that will guarantee an unprecedented driving experience".
The FXX K’s main rival is McLaren’s P1 GTR, which made its debut at the Pebble Beach concours earlier this year. It will go on sale next summer and is powered by a 986bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine working as part of a hybrid powertrain. The P1 GTR will only be offered to existing P1 owners at a cost of £1.98 million.

Ferrari hasn't revealed how much it will charge potential owners to take part in its driver programme, which it hopes to roll out over the next two years, though expect a significant increase on the standard car's £1.15 million price tag.

It's also likely that only existing LaFerrari owners will be eligible to buy the FXX K. Previous entries in Ferrari's exclusive owner-driver programme include the Enzo-based FXX, which is powered by an 848bhp 6.2-litre V12 engine, and the 720bhp 599XX.

That will be a $199,000 option and just wasn't ready for the photo shoot.

I'm starting to get HP desensitized. It's no longer amazing to see these figures, but I do wonder where physics will cap what these cars are capable of.

Seven and a half minutes of Italian symphonic beauty; I tip my hat to the composer.

Torquemada - appreciate the video, and that rather than starting a new thread, you dug up and continued the existing one.

That symphony is exactly the reason that formula E is as exciting as watching cars rust.

Sound is 50% of racing excitement.

Okay so the 24 or so Formula E drivers do not care. Piss on them. It is a spectator sport. I do not give two ****s about the drivers. I care about the spectators. It is suppose to be fun and thrilling. Watch a race on TV with no volume. Same principle.

I'm tired of it too. The antis are hell bent on being children and have been, in every single discussion of the topic for years. It's a political tactic (Republican) and it doesn't work here, you know on a car forum. Go run for fuk'n office and have a go there.

Going to have to go with watching the brakes turn red hot in a split second is probably my favorite part.
