Ferrari says the auto packs innovative concepts derived from Formula 1, GT3, GTE, and Challenge series in which the automaker competes. This is the FXX K Evo, which joins previous XX cars that spawned Evo version like the FXX and 599.
The FXX-K EVO's insane headline numbers are 847bhp at 9,200rpm from a V12 engine that is complemented by an electric motor producing 187bhp for an incredible 1,034bhp combined figure. Owner cars will be rolled out as part of the XX program in 2018/19, spanning nine racetracks between March and October.
The Evo pack adds extra downforce to make 23 per cent more than the standard FXX-K thanks to a fixed rear wing that works with the adaptive aerodynamic system.
But the hypercar can not be legally driven on public roads and is not homologated to compete in any current racing series, reports Jalopnik. All of the changes made to the exterior have aerodynamic influences arrive after more than a year of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations - the downforce figures are now close to racers from the GT3 and GTE championships. Downforce at 200 km/h is 640kg and can reach over 830kg at top speed.
Most obviously improving downforce is the twin-profile fixed wing which has been developed to amplify the downforce produced by the active rear spoiler.
Something you can't see is a set of vortex generators on the undertray, which increase ground effect, and there are also new front brake cooling intakes which perform better without increasing drag. Further Formula 1 know-how appears in the cabin, with F1-derived gear-shift paddles found on the all-new steering wheel.
New additions the car's complex bodywork include revised front and rear bumpers, reports Autocar, along with a host of "turning vanes" positioned on the front wheel arches.
