Only a handful of Ferrari’s most prolific collectors can say they own one of the Italian car manufacturers’ ‘XX’ badged track cars. However, at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction in mid-August, that will change as a 2006 Ferrari FXX will be offered to the public.
Details about the FXX in question have yet to be announced by like all others, it is based around the road-going Ferrari Enzo and was the first model in Ferrari’s hardcore XX series which now also includes various 599XX and LaFerrari-based FXX-K models.
Ferrari only ever built 30 units of the original FXX, equipping each with a screaming 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V12 engine pumping out a remarkable 789 hp at 8500 rpm.
The car tipped the scales at a mere 2546 lbs (1155 kg) when new and during series 13 of Top Gear, was infamously driven by Michael Schumacher around the Top Gear Test Track, setting a blistering time of 1:10.7, roughly seven seconds faster than any other car which had previously lapped the Dunsfold Aerodrome circuit.
The FXX in question is painted in an eye-catching shade of red complete with white accents. Inside, there are a pair of racing bucket seats, loads of carbon fiber, a digital gauge cluster, and a steering wheel wrapped in alcantara.
Images provided of the car also show that it will be sold with a spare set of wheels and all the various tools and racing equipment which Ferrari provided from the factory. We presume the car’s next owner will also be permitted to join Ferrari’s exclusive XX Programme and have the opportunity to drive the race car at private events around the world.
