Mythbuster: Ferrari XX Owners Can Take Their Cars Home After All

We’ve all heard talk that the lucky few members of Ferrari’s XX Programme can’t actually take their cars home with them, the Italian marque instead forcing them to keep them at the factory. Not true.

Google executive Benjamin Sloss, who, along with his wife, owns a Ferrari 599XX Evoluzione and a Ferrari FXXK, recently debunked the myth on Instagram saying that XX owners can keep their cars anywhere they like. He also said that owners can enter their vehicle’s into track days which haven’t been organized by Ferrari.

On the back of the news, Road & Track got in contact with Ferrari who confirmed via email that XX owners are free to have their cars at home.

“The majority of the cars are stored in Maranello in the Corse Clienti department, but customers are free to have them at home. It is mandatory, however, to have a full review of the car by the Ferrari crew team before the car hits the track in any event or private testing session. Anytime the car is taken to the track, for an official Ferrari event or personal test session, there is always a mechanic and technician. He’ll do the full check up when the car arrives at that said track.”

That’s one myth busted, then. Let’s see, what else is out there…

I read on the internet that Ferrari XX cars can't be taken home between races. Let me set the record straight: That is a myth. We can take both our XX cars anywhere we like, enter them in track days, or just keep them in our garage and rub them with a diaper. The same is true for other XX owners. Myth debunked. And now back the pics. PS: great photo of our 599XX EVO by @itzkirb … taken in our driveway ?A photo posted by Ben (@yonly65) on Sep 1, 2016 at 7:24am PDT
