Ferrari has unveiled the extreme FXX K, a 1,035-hp prototype supercar based on the carbon fiber body of the company's first hybrid, the 1-million-euro LaFerrari.
Like the LaFerrari, the FXX K is a gasoline-electric hybrid with a 6.3-liter V-12 engine that supplies 848 hp combined with an electric motor that delivers an additional 187 hp for a total of 1035 hp (1050 cv) compared with LaFerrari's 950 hp.
Ferrari calls the FXX K a "laboratory car" and says it will be made available to an "exclusive group" of client test-drivers. The the FXX K's design was "unfettered by homologation and racing regulations" and it will never be used in competition, the company said.
The FXX K has a striking appearance with add-ons such as a twin-profile spoiler and a splitter up front, which improve aerodynamics. The moveable rear spoiler, which extends 60mm (2.4 inches) further than on the LaFerrari, is flanked by vertical fins topped by small wings. Downforce is up 50 percent in the "low drag" configuration and up 30 percent in the more aggressive configuration.
