Ferrari FXX was the ultimate track day experience, with owners taking active roles in the ongoing development of the Ferrari FXX.
The Ferrari FXX is a high performance race car and prototype built by automobile manufacturer Ferrari in Maranello, Italy. The FXX is based on the street-legal Enzo. Production of the FXX began in 2005.
The engine is based on a the Enzos engine and has been bored out to 6.2 litres, developing over 800bhp and probably closer to 900bhp. Michael Schumacher was given a black Ferrari FXX. All the owners of these cars were previous Ferrari owners. They took part in an ongoing development programme where new technology and fine tunning of the FXX progressed.
The Ferrari FXX took part in an episode of Top Gear and was the quickest car around the circuit, but was subsequently banned from the leader board due to it not being street legal and running on slicks.
