Despite being road-legal, Edo’s FXX develops an extra 80hp (59kW) over standard model
Owners of the car are given the chance to drive it regularly on Ferrari’s Fiorano test track in Italy, where the carmaker’s own engineers compile useful data from the track sessions to help develop future models.
For this reason, the FXX was never intended to be driven on public roads. That was never going to stop Edo Competition’s founder Edo Karabegovic, who saw modifying the FXX as a challenge.
Straight out of the box, the FXX features a 800hp (598kW) 6.3L V12 engine, 19in forged alloy wheels shod with racing slicks, carbon-ceramic brakes and a gearbox that manages to shift gears in less than 100ms. The car is also so low that it is almost impossible to drive it on public roads.
To meet Germany’s TÜV regulations, the only changes needed were the addition of new brake pads, production car tires, an exhaust valve and a more restrictive catalytic converter. Surprisingly, Edo were able to squeeze an additional 80hp (59kW) from the high-strung engine with only some minor ECU mods.
