The German driver test-drives the new laboratory car at Fiorano
Maranello, 13 February – One thing is certain: Sebastian Vettel had some serious fun behind the wheel of the FXX K at Fiorano. The look on his face and his delighted exclamations (“Mamma mia! It goes like a rocket!”) in this video say it all. Vettel took the wheel of the FXX K for a photo shoot for the next issue of The Official Ferrari Magazine. The four-times World Champion, of course, will be driving the SF15-T in the upcoming Formula 1 World Championship season.
Having spoken with engineer Marco Fainello and test-driver Raffaele de Simone, both of whom worked on the development of the new laboratory car, Vettel started lapping, quickly looking very much at home despite this being his first time in the FXX K. The German really pushed the car to the limit, only easing off for a single lap to let the brakes cool a little before upping the speed ante still further.
In the end, Sebastian declared himself more than satisfied with his experience with the car’s 1,000-plus horses. You’ll find all the details of the day in the Ferrari Magazine. But in the meantime, enjoy the video…
Ferrari’s new FXX K research and development programme receives its world premiere at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. The new Ferrari FXX K laboratory-car is based on Maranello’s first hybrid model and will grace the world’s tracks from next year onwards. The K in Ferrari FXX K’s moniker is a reference to the “KERS” kinetic energy recovery system it adopts in maximising its track performance.

Unfettered by homologation and racing regulations, the Ferrari FXX K will never be used in competition. It was, in fact, developed to be completely uncompromising, incorporating technological innovations that will guarantee an unprecedented driving experience to the exclusive group of Ferrari FXX K Client-Test Drivers with whom the Prancing Horse will roll out a Ferrari FXX K test programme over the coming two years.

The Ferrari FXX K’s enormous potential is attested to by two significant figures: a total power output of 1050 cv (860 cv delivered by its conventional V12 engine and 190 by its electric motor) and maximum torque in excess of 900 Nm.

The Ferrari FXX K’s 6262 cc V12 features new camshafts and a modified valve train with mechanical rather than hydraulic tappets. The intake manifolds have been redesigned and given a special type of polishing treatment. The exhaust system has been modified as its silencers have been eliminated.

The HY-KERS system has been evolved specifically for pure performance with the result that the driver can control the function logics from the specific 4-setting Manettino on the centre console: Qualify, for maximum performance within a limited number of laps; Long Run to optimise performance consistency; Manual Boost for instant maximum torque delivery; and Fast Charge, for a fast recharge of the car’s battery.

A focus on delivering maximum efficiency at every stage of every Ferrari FXX K track lap has resulted in extensive but integrated work on the entire car body in terms of both active and passive aerodynamics.

The front of the Ferrari FXX K is dominated by a twin-profile spoiler and a larger splitter, which is 30 mm lower, with a gap in its centre. This design is an application of the concepts developed to improve aero balance in the GT category of the WEC, which Ferrari has won for three consecutive years. Two pairs of vertical elements, an endplate and, externally, a dive plane, together with vertical fins channel the air towards the car’s flanks, generating a longitudinal vortex that creates a localised depression. This in turn sucks the wake from the Ferrari FXX K wheels to the outside of the aerodynamic underbody. Along with the side skirts that extend out from the sills, the vortex helps isolate the airflow from the underbody to boost its efficiency.

The solutions on the rear of the Ferrari FXX K are highly sophisticated, too. The tail section is now higher and the mobile spoiler extends further for a total increase in extension of 60mm when fully deployed. A vertical fin and a small wing each side of the tail act as guide vanes in the low drag configuration and boost the spoiler’s efficiency in the high downforce one. This system also creates considerable downforce at the rear of the Ferrari FXX K,
