Ferrari Announces Customer Race Days at Barcelona

For those of us privileged to own a Ferrari Formula 1 or XX car, Barcelona is the place to be. This weekend, factory drivers and F1 team members will invade the historic track along with the complete lineup of the XX series. For a quick refresher, the original FXX is a racing version of the 2004 Ferrari Enzo that offers 789 horsepower with a featherweight of only 2,546 lbs. It was surpassed by the FXX Evo, which reduced drag while offering 848 horsepower.

599XX

Next was the 2010 Ferrari 599XX. Based on the 2011 Ferrari 599 GTO, it is the only XX series car to have a V12 up front, so many consider it the grand finale of Ferrari’s traditional race cars. Two massive fans in the trunk kept the car glued to the track while it sent 720 horsepower to the ground. Downforce was measured at 1,389 lbs at 186 mph, and it reaches 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. Further development yielded the 599XX Evo, which offered 730 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque along with losing 77 lbs in weight. It was the first XX car to have active aerodynamics.

FXX-K

The latest XX cars are loosely based on the 2015 LaFerrari. Since the hypercar uses the KERS system to store energy, the FXX-K offers 1,036 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. It weighs 2,568 lbs and has 1,190 lbs of downforce. Like the others, improvements were made to add 23% more downforce and remove 198 lbs from the chassis. This became the FXX-K Evo, the meanest machine Maranello has ever built. Owners who participate in these events can opt to share telemetry with Ferrari, as the data is used to build their next generation of hypercars.
