LaFerrari FXX K Evoluzione rumoured

Ferrari has hinted it'll be developing an even faster version of the LaFerrari FXX K, called the Evoluzione

Ferrari’s track only LaFerrari FXX K could get even faster if rumours of a future Evoluzione model are true. Just weeks after its track debut in Abu Dhabi, Ferrari has hinted that the 1034bhp FXX K could lighten its 1165kg dry weight to become an even more potent track racer. 

When we asked Ferrari test driver Marc Gené if the FXX K could produce more power across its lifespan, he confirmed it was unlikely given that the 6.2-litre V12 – which produces 847bhp alone – was close to its absolute limit. He also suggested that the electric motor would need significant upgrades to bring substantial power increases, so the only way to really improve performance would be in weight loss.

'I couldn’t believe that something so powerful was so drivable,' Gene explained. 'I’ve only experienced something like that in F1 and LMP1; the LaFerrari FXX K is on that level, honestly. For this reason, it would be very difficult to develop an FXX K Evo.'

That’s why an FXX K Evoluzione would focus its development in shedding weight, with improvements to aerodynamics and electronic stability control helping to further reduce laptimes. The FXX K in its current state is already 5sec a lap faster than the road LaFerrari around Fiorano, so anything faster would push it into the realms of Ferrari’s single seaters…

The previous generation car, the Enzo-based FXX, received improvements in Evoluzione spec, so these rumours for an FXX K version seem quite plausible. We couldn’t expect to see an FXX K Evoluzione for many years, however, but given that Ferrari’s halo cars arrive little more than once a decade, there’s more than enough time to develop it.
