Ferrari's new 1035-hp, 900-Nm FXX K (for KERS) hybrid is based on the 950-hp limited-edition LaFerrari hybrid supercar
though it will never be sold or raced in sanctioned competition. Completely unfettered by homologation and racing regulations, the FXX K is part of a new research and development programme similar to the 599XX and FXX programmes which essentially involve laboratory cars designed specifically for the track and reserved for a select group of exclusive Ferrari client test drivers.
In addition to recently showing off its brand new F12 Berlinetta
in Beijing, Ferrari brought along the latest version of its HY-KERS hybrid system. The system has been tweaked for a mid-rear engine layout.
Ferrari has announced at the Geneva Motor Show
that its California
model is set to become the first supercar to offer the fuel and emissions-saving "Stop&Start" engine system. This cuts fuel consumption by six percent and reduces carbon dioxide emissions to 280g/km - a figure Ferrari says is less than some family cars currently on the road. The company has also unveiled a concept hybrid - the HY-KERS based on its 599
GTB Fiorano model.
