The Ultimate Guide to the Ferrari FXX

FERRARI FXX – THE ULTIMATE TRACK-DAY ENZO

What if you could take a Ferrari Enzo and take it to the next level, removing all concessions that were made for the road-legal original? Turn it up to 11, so to speak. Well, that’s exactly what Ferrari decided to do in creating the FXX in 2005. This is the car that famously obliterated all others on the Top Gear Power Board when it came out. As some of you know, that all-black FXX was actually Michael Schumacher’s own car, driven by the legend himself (disguised as the Stig, of course). Clearly, the FXX is something special; a showcase for Ferrari’s most cutting-edge technology.

Let’s talk about some specs that set the FXX apart from its road-legal sibling, the Enzo. Of course, many of these technologies were taken from or inspired by Ferrari’s own F1 technology. To add some more horses to the stable, the dry-sump V12’s displacement was increased from 6 to 6.3 litres. Output jumped from 660 to an astounding 800 bhp. Also upgraded were the tires, brake pads, and the gearbox, which is capable of firing of shifts in under 100 milliseconds.

The spoiler arrangement is customizable to suit whichever track the car is being used on. These modifications were good enough to drop the 0 – 100 km/h figure to well under 3 seconds, compared to 3.6 seconds for the Enzo. Of course, the most important metric is the Fiorano lap time, which was nearly 4 seconds faster than the Enzo’s, at 1:18.

At £1 million apiece, only 30 were built. That might not sound like such an outrageous price these days, considering the enormous price people have paid for modern cars like the Bugatti Chiron and LaFerrari,  but consider that this asking price was roughly twice the rate Ferrari charged for the Enzo when it debuted in 2002. You also have to consider that those 30 buyers were not even allowed to bring their new Ferrari home. Instead, Ferrari keeps the cars on their property and invites owners to track days where the factory-maintained cars are brought out for some fun. As much fun as this must be for the owners, it also benefits Ferrari as they are given the opportunity to test their latest and greatest technology on some of their most influential customers before it is put into new models. The program ended up being such a success that a similar program was created for the LaFerrari with the FXX-K.
