Original ownership of the $2.1 million FXX model was by invitation only, and Ferrari had planned on a production run of just 29 units until Michael Schumacher announced his (initial) retirement from Formula One racing. As a tribute to its star driver, Ferrari built FXX number 30 as a gift to Michael Schumacher.
The FXX Evoluzione is the updated version of the FXX, benefiting from enhanced aerodynamics, more horsepower (850 versus 800 on the FXX) and a paddle-shifted transmission with quicker gear changes. The car has a theoretical top speed of 249 miles per hour, and can run from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds.
Ferrari’s Corse Clienti program gives FXX owners the ability to drive their cars on some of the finest racetracks in the world, including Italy’s Monza circuit, captured in the video above. Next up is Laguna Seca on May 20, followed by Paul Ricard in June, Spa in July and Silverstone in September.
If you can’t get enough of the FXX engine note, this video is for you. Put it to full screen, crank up the volume, sit back and enjoy.
