Unveiled during the Finali Mondiali, the new Ferrari FXX-K Evo will be available both as an extremely limited-run model and as an upgrade package for the existing XX cars.
The new model benefits from an extensive package that applies innovative concepts derived from all of the various track categories in which Ferrari competes with its cars: the Formula 1, GT3, GTE and Challenge, the latter being the single-make championship bearing its name.
The FXX-K Evo is not homologated for road use and will not be used in competition outside its dedicated programme. The innovative carbon-fibre component crafting processes make the car lighter than the previous FXX-K despite introducing new elements such as the fixed rear wing. It also features an evolved aero package developed by Ferrari’s engineers and the Ferrari Style Centre’s designers. The by-pass vent from the rear wheel arch has been enlarged, hollowing out the volume behind the wheels. FXX-K Evo’s suspension was specifically calibrated to adapt it to its new aerodynamic efficiency figures.
Inside, a conceptually-different steering wheel is fitted with integrated gear-shifting paddles and 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.[justified_image_grid preset=8 ids=122886,122885 caption=off]
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.
