How about a screaming Ferrari V-12 to liven up your afternoon? Youtube user 19Bozzy92 captured a gaggle of Maranello's FXX Evoluzione track specials making some righteous sounds during a meet-up at Monza.
The Evoluzione, of course, is an upgraded version of the FXX, itself a track-only version of the Enzo sold to 30 lucky customers, but maintained by the factory through the Corse Clienti program and transported to venues of the owner's choice. Under the Batmobile-like bodywork is a 6.3-liter V-12, which produces 860 horsepower and is mated to an automated F1 gearbox.
Despite being eclipsed by the LaFerrari, the FXX Evoluzione continues to command a price as extreme as its performance. One sold for $2.1 million at a 2011 Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, while another turned up at a Florida dealer with a $2.2 million pricetag. Michael Schumacher's personal FXX was put up for sale last year with a $2.67 million asking price.
It's easy to get lost in the numbers, which is why it's great to see (and hear) the FXX Evoluzione doing what it was designed to do: Go around a track, fast. The cars in this video don't disappoint.
The sight of a mid-engined Ferrari streaking around a curve, and the screech of its engine do as good a job as any of explaining why someone would spend over $1 million on a car that can't even be driven to the local mall.
