Ferrari’s uber-bonkers FXX-K Evo set for UK debut at January’s Autosport show

Written by: Neil

At the start of this month, we told you about the Ferrari FXX-K Evo – a car hellbent on making every other car on the road look like a pathetic snail, with all 1,036 of its brake horsepowers and sub-three-second 0-62mph sprint.

Good news, you’ll be able to see this phenomenal hunk of automotive brilliance in the metal when the FXX-K Evo appears at Autosport International, which takes place at the Birmingham NEC between January 11th-14th, 2018.

Its appearance at Autosport International will be the first time that an XX Programme car has attended an event outside of Italy, prior to its on-track debut.

Autosport Media UK editor-in-chief Andrew van de Burgt said: “The car is as close to stepping into some Formula One machinery and the show will be the perfect place to see it up close in the flesh. It is going to be a massive hit with petrolheads at the show.”

The main Ferrari feature at Autosport International will show off the cars available through Ferrari’s exclusive Corse Clienti client racing programme, such as the Challenge and GT cars, XX development cars and Formula One models.

A bit more about the FXX-K Evo

The FXX-K Evo, which is set to play a feature role in the 2018 Ferrari XX Programme, boasts a 6.3-litre V12 and electric power unit, producing 23 per cent more downforce than the standard FXX-K.

Compared to the regular FXX-K, the Evo has some extensive revisions to its aero package to help increase downforce and airflow, such as a twin-profile fixed wing on the tail, developed to work in seamless synergy with the active rear spoiler. The twin-profile rear wing is supported by two side fins as well as by a central fin.

Only 40 FXX-K Evos will ever be built and none of them will be allowed to drive on public roads, which makes it a very exclusive – and scary – track day toy.

Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, comments: “January can be a miserable month, but news of the FXX-K Evo coming to the UK means many in the Petrol News office are already wanting to get Christmas and New Year out of the way. We may have to book a coach up to the NEC for this one.”
