Maintains mechanical hybrid but taken to a new level, just as in aesthetics and technical solutions is a highly evolved car. If you’re still mulling over K, this comes from KERS.
This model will most coveted within Ferrari. Will be provided over the next two years to choicest brand customer although the price and units to be produced is unknown. Figures in this Ferrari FXX K are stunning. 1050 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque certainly not leave you indifferent. The V12 gasoline engine 6.2-liter produces 860 horses itself, to which must be added the electric motor 190.
To achieve this increase in power V12 engine has undergone some modifications . Thus, new camshafts mounted with mechanical tappets instead of water.

This front with flaps optimize the aerodynamic flow underneath the car, which is aided by pressure from the top thereof, where striking the rear wing party. There is also a drop-down rear spoiler. The rear diffuser bestial this joint effort so studied. With all these improvements include a downforce is achieved up to 50% higher.
All this display ends with a Pirelli slicks with sensors measuring forces longitudinal, lateral and radial, in addition to temperature and pressure. Thus, the traction control can work optimally. Systems such as electronic differential, traction control or ABS offer various settings, selectable by the driver from the steering wheel.
Inside the level of refinement is not the same as a LaFerrari. The steering wheel is similar, but with more controls and there is a center console with various control oriented towards the driver.
