A very well-kept secret in our car culture, the Ferrari FXX sports a small hatchback version of the V10 engine, which sits on the front axle of the car.
That engine was one of the key ingredients of the Ferrari GT40, and the same holds true for the Ferrari 458 Italia.
However, the new FXX is the first production FXX with a completely new engine.
In fact, the only major difference between the two models is that the Ferrari has a small 4.0L twin-turbo V12 instead of a 2.5L inline-six, but it’s still a 545-hp powerplant.
What’s really different about the new Ferrari is that it’s a turbocharged V10 that’s tuned for torque, which means it’s lighter and more efficient than its V12-based sibling.
The engine also uses a new, lighter engine-generating unit, and it’s capable of up to 540 horsepower.
In terms of power, the car also has a new electric power steering system, which has a total of seven gears, including three “d” gears.
There’s also a six-speed automatic gearbox, as well as an electronic differential that can automatically shift the front wheels and rear tires to keep the car in a straight line.
Ferrari says that the FXX has the lowest operating speed of any of its production cars, with a maximum speed of just under 300 kilometers per hour.
It also has one of those “sport-tuned” brakes that work just like a regular brake, with only a few small adjustments for traction control.
And, of course, there’s an electric motor that produces 365 horsepower.
But, as a supercar, the Fxx has been an incredibly important component of the Italian luxury brand.
Ferrari has been building its own FXX since the late 1960s, but the company only announced the car back in 2008, so we haven’t been able to see the car since.
Ferrari hasn’t announced any details about the car, but we have a few images to give you.
For starters, the two-door FXX will be the first Ferrari to use the brand’s signature red paint, which will be replaced by the blue-and-white color scheme of the 458 Italian.
Also, the rear of the FXXX will be updated to be more like the 458’s, and Ferrari says it’ll have a sportier stance and a bigger roofline.
And for those who can’t wait to get their hands on the car before its debut, Ferrari says there will be an initial launch for buyers on March 30, and then an extended rollout throughout the year.
