There is not an iota of the doubt to anyone that Ferrari practically changed the way Supercars was manufactured. It was one man's dream - Enzo Ferrari - to manufacturer not only a fast car like none other, but also a car that can stand out of the crowd. The dream that started in 1947 with 125 S is still going strong in the form of the latest product - the Ferrari FXX K Supercar.
Based on the famous Ferrari LaFerrari, the limited number Ferrari FXX K recently won the Red Dot Best of the Best Award for its design. To celebrate the success, the Italian Prancing Horse has released a video that shows how the car was designed. The video only provides the insights of how the car was designed without any voice over.
One can see the hard work done by the styling and engineering teams who had spent countless hours working on the car. Complementing the video, the company has also released some sketches revealing the potential designs that could have taken shape as the FXX K. The track-only non-road legal Supercar comes from the family of FXX, FXX Evo, 599XX and 599XX EVO.
Ferrari's chief designer Flavio Manzoni tasked his team at the Ferrari Styling Centre, not to fiddle much with the original LaFerrari's looks. All they had to do was ensure that every new styling component added was functional and every design change enhanced performance. Also, they had to "radically" modify the body panels in order to enhance the downforce without altering the car’s aesthetic.
Ferrari FXX K is powered by a 6.3-litre V12 engine sourced from the LaFerrari, but is tuned for added performance. The FXX K is capable of generating 1035ho of power and uses the same Kinetic Energy Recovery System as founded in F1 cars. While LaFerrari is a road-legal car, the FXX K is only meant to be pushed on the tracks.
