Witnessing in person what the Ferrari FXX can do is usually a pretty rare sight but if you want to up the ante even more then try to see in the metal a road-legal version of the model.
But the people that were lucky enough to attend the VMax Stealth event this past weekend were treated to this red example which roared its massive engine past 200 miles per hour (322 kilometers per hour) on a track. The show took place on an old military airport and the red street-legal FXX showcased its massive power by tipping the 200 mph (322 km/h) mark. Just crank the sound on the video embedded below to see how the monster’s 6.3-liter naturally aspirated engine performs a true soundtrack while revving up to 8, 500 rpm, when the maximum power of 820 horsepower (603 kilowatts) is obtained. There’s no sense in mentioning the insane sound carries like a blast wave for kilometers and we can say this is as enticing as hearing the screaming Formula One cars.
If you don’t remember well the FXX, here’s a pointer or two: it has been developed starting from the Enzo – Ferrari’s previous flagship hypercar – and has a bigger engine and a transmission derived directly from Ferrari’s Formula 1 program of that time. The updated brake system has carbon fiber-reinforced silicon carbide ceramic composite discs. By the way, with just 30 units made, Ferrari still has a saying in what owners do with it since the models are part of an entire program of the Italian manufacturer.
