Ferrari FXX details:
The Ferrari FXX is not homologated for road use and there are no plans to compete with it either. In fact, the Ferrari FXX prototype is developed exclusively for track driving as part of a specific R&d programme agreed with a selected group of just over 20 clients involving 14 group test sessions and 14 private ones in the last two years. due to readings taken over the 16500, kilometres of tests carried out in 2006 and the 18500, kilometres covered in 2007, the modifications made to the vehicle have focused on honing its aerodynamics, running gear and controls. Seven-times Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher also joined the ranks of the client reviewers and gave the programme the benefit of his vast experience on several occasions.
Maranello's developers studied the wealth of data gained to develop a kit which will cut the Ferrari Fxx's Fiorano lap time to under 1'16'' (previously it was 1'18''). The Ferrari Fxx's 6262 cc V12 motor can now punch out a massive 860 hp at 9500 rpm. Gearshifting takes just 60 ms, a drop of 20 ms on the previous time, and the gear ratios have been adapted to make use of the extra 1000 rpm now provided by the motor.
