Built in only 30 units, the FXX was Ferrari’s most advanced supercar, closely guarded by the Italian carmaker due to its state-of-the art technologies taken from F1, used to developed the next generation of Prancing Horses. And here’s one doing a drag race.
Customers who were paying roughly £2 million ($2,850,000) for it, were only allowed to race the vehicle on Ferrari-approved track days. But now that the hybridized FXX K has taken its place, FXX owners can finally enjoy the car as they please – since the contract with the Scuderia has – presumably – ended.
Even so, the FXX remains a ferociously capable racing car, which still can’t be used on the public streets – since Ferrari didn’t bother, in the first place, to make it road-legal – although this particular owner managed somehow to register the beast as a road-legal automobile.
But two taillights beneath the tailpipes doesn’t miraculously neuter the vehicle’s character, as it remains a genuine track-muncher, as it can be heard during the drag races at the V-Max Stealth event.
According to the video description, the FXX reached speeds of 200 mph (322 km/h) on the old military airport, while its 6.2-litre howling V12 – unrestricted by any noise-dampening solutions – was as loud as you’d expect it to be.
And if you’re wondering why the car has shown up wearing a suit of tape, it’s probably to protect it against stone chips and debris; because a protective transparent film was clearly too much for this exquisite rarity.
