During the Ferrari World Finals at the Mugello circuit that hosted the world debut of the Ferrari F12tdf, all of the cars from the Italian marque’s XX programme hit the famed circuit. Now we have our first opportunity to hear them side-by-side and can finally say which one we think sounds the best.
Starting with the original Ferrari FXX, it was co-developed with Michael Schumacher and ultimately offered in range-toping Evoluzione guise. Its power comes from a naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 engine which as the following video shows, emits a howl not far off Formula One cars from the early 2000s.
Due to its similar albeit slightly smaller 6.0-liter V12, the 599XX and 599XX Evoluzione sound quite similar but don’t seem to be quite as loud as the FXX nor as high pitched.
As for the brand new Ferrari FXX K, it is by far the fastest of all thanks to its combination of a 6.3-liter V12 and an electric motor, resulting in over 1000 hp. While it sounds absolutely insane, it sounds somewhat muted compared to the 599XX and FXX.
