The new Ferrari FXX-K Evo is the third car to be confirmed for the main feature at the Autosport International Show which takes place at the NEC Birmingham, from 11-14 January 2018.
The Ferrari FXX-K Evo made its world premiere at Finali Mondiali at Mugello last month and this will be the first time that an XX Programme car has been at an event outside of Italy, prior to its on-track debut.
The FXX-K Evo uses more carbon fibre than its predecessor but still develops more than 1000bhp from its 6.3-litre V12 powerplant. It has undergone some extensive revisions to its aero package to help increase airflow and downforce – which is now over 830kg at top speed – a 23 per cent improvement compared to the FXX-K. This is thanks in part to a twin-profile fixed wing on the tail - supported by two side fins and a central fin - which works in tandem with the active rear spoiler. Updates to the design of the rear bumpers and underbody have also boosted downforce efficiency.
Ferrari’s FXX-K Evo is aimed at a select group of enthusiast clients who are keen to share data and work closely with Ferrari technicians by driving a closed-wheel laboratory car. This latest model marks an evolution of the XX Programme which was launched in 2005 with cars developed specifically to play an active role in research and development.
The main Ferrari feature at Autosport International will showcase the range of cars available through Ferrari’s client racing programme, Corse Clienti, from Challenge car to GT car, through the XX development cars to Formula One.
Autosport Media UK Editor-in-Chief, Andrew van de Burgt, said: “The first time the Ferrari FXX-K Evo will be seen outside of Italy is at the NEC, Birmingham in January at Autosport International. 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!”
