The video captures the EVO version of the high-performance Ferrari FXX K during one of its track days at the Nurburgring.

The Ferrari FXX is one of the craziest Italian supercars in history. With its light and capable engine, it is one of the prancing horse company’s most exciting cars.

In the video, Automotive Mike filmed the Ferrari The FXX K EVO on track at Ferrari Racing Days. Although there is no lap time or top speed, the pure sound of the Ferrari track day car on dry and wet track on start, acceleration and downshifting is worth it .

Evoluzione means evolution in aerodynamics

The FXX-K Evo unveiled at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali in 2017 is a tougher version of the track-day FXX K based on the brand’s hybrid sports car – the road-legal LaFerrari. The Evoluzione is an aerodynamic package that, compared to the standard FXX K, produces more downforce. Ferrari states that the downforce produced by the Evo package is 23% higher than the standard FXX K and 75% higher than the road LaFerrari. The exact figures it produces are 640kg at 124mph and over 830kg at top speed.

According to Automotive Mike, the incredible 30% increase in downforce over the FXX K comes from the vortex generators located under the Evo’s body. The new rear configuration, including the wing, vanes and a few other tricks, produces an additional 10% increase in downforce. New rear arch design provides five percent more downforce. Finally, the automaker used its GT racing program and redesigned the front end, resulting in a 10% improvement over the regular FXX K.

Some additional Evo specs

Some of the FXX K Evo’s best features include a 6.3-liter V12 and an electric motor that produces 1,036 hp and over 664 lb-ft of torque. The V12 alone produces around 850 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque and the electric motor produces an additional 187 hp. Power figures are the same as the regular FXX K. The car is fitted with a seven-speed F1 dual-clutch gearbox. The rear wheels are 20 inches with 345 sections. The front wheels are 19 inches.

Ferrari doesn’t provide any precise data on the car’s performance or weight, but the automaker says it used Formula 1 experience and adopted lots of carbon fiber to make the car lighter despite the new wing. Compared to the FXX K, there is a weight reduction of 90 kg. As for the speed, Automotive Mike in the absence of precise data from the manufacturer assumes that it is between “very” and “fast”, something below 1 m 14 s displayed by FXX K on the test track deprived of Fiorano from the Ferrari.
