Ferrari Enzo Gets FXX K Bits, Looks Spot On
With the mechanical enhancements, the LaFerrarialso got some serious body modifications, meant to allow the car in the FXX K configuration to generate an incredible amount of downforce: 540 kg (1,190 lb) at 200 kph (124 mph).
Unlike the FXX K, the Ferrari Enzowas made to travel the roads. Wearing the name of the company’s founder, the model would have probably deserved more time under the spotlight but ended up being made in about 400 units between 2002 and 2004.
Luckily, from time to time, digital designers remember the car, and bring it back to life in amazing or less so renderings. For what it’s worth, the one we have here, the work of Yasid Oozeearfrom yasiddesign, seems to fall into the first category. That’s because we’re dealing with an Enzo wearing the most in-your-face FXX K bits.
The front end, although maintaining the overall design of the Enzo, borrows several cues from the racer, including the position of the side mirrors. Viewed from the side, the digital car looks a lot sharper than in its stock form, although here too it retains most of the original Enzo look, save perhaps for the unique wheels fitted onto it. But it is at the rear where one of the biggest changes can be seen, as the Enzo was gifted with the twin small wings at each corner of the tail that made the FXX K all the craze back in its day.
As with most other works such as this, the Enzo FXX K will never see daylight in the real world. Yet this design goes to prove, once more, that all it takes is a little imagination to bring back into the spotlight, with a bang, the machines of yesteryear.

The Ferrari FXX is a high-performance track-only developmental prototype built by Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari. The FXX is based on the street-legal flagship Enzo Ferrari. Production of the FXX began in 2005.
The FXX uses some technology demonstrated on the Enzo Ferrari and combines it with new developments from Ferrari and its suppliers. However, the car is only a part of the overall FXX program. Customers pay GB£2 million, but are only allowed to drive the car on special track days which are approved by Ferrari. After they drive the car, the owners are entitled to be debriefed by Ferrari on the car's performance. Ferrari's sister company Maserati, has developed a similar car, the MC12 Versione Corsa for this purpose with the only difference being that the owners can keep the car in their custody. Lamborghini also allows their track-day car, the Essenza SCV12, to be kept by the custody of their customers. The FXX may be stored by owners wherever they please. The caveat behind the FXX is only that Ferrari technicians must look over the car "before the car hits the track in any event or private testing session."
The FXX, an evolution of the Enzo in essence, shares some components with the flagship car, but numerous significant developments are unique to the FXX.
The FXX's engine is based on Enzo's, but displacement has been increased to 6,262.45 cc (6.3 L; 382.2 cu in) from 5,998 cc (6.0 L; 366.0 cu in). Power output has been raised from the Enzo's 660 PS (485 kW; 651 hp) at 7,800 rpm, to 800 PS (588 kW; 789 hp) at 8,500 rpm.
The gearbox incorporates the latest developments from Ferrari's F1 program and has a shift time of under 100 milliseconds. The brake pads were also upgraded from the Enzo. It does, however, retain the Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite brake discs featured on the Enzo. The tyres are custom-developed 19 inch racing slicks.
The FXX has comprehensive data-monitoring and telemetry systems that not only allow the driver to assess their performance on the track, but also provide Ferrari technicians with valuable data to improve the car and future road-going Ferrari models.
Ferrari has built 30 cars in total, adding one special edition to the 29 cars that were originally planned. The original 29 cars have all been sold to pre-selected past Ferrari customers. The 30th car was retained by Ferrari S.p.A. and presented to Ferrari's F1 World Champion driver, Michael Schumacher, along with an Enzo Ferrari when he retired from Formula One racing at the end of 2006 as a token of appreciation for his achievements. Schumacher's FXX differs from others in having black paintwork without stripes, having red trimmed wheels, matte rather than chrome exhaust tips, and his personal logo stitched on the racing seats.
The owners of the FXX also participate in Ferrari's testing and brand development programs. The purpose of this particular program is to allow Ferrari's top customers exclusive access to its most up-to-date technology and to utilise their input in the development of future models.
The model was only sold in Europe. Units can be imported, but not owned, on any other continent. A more aggressive FXX Evoluzione package was introduced in 2009 and was reported to cost €1.5 million (excluding taxes) (US$2.1 million), including the car, the crew and the services provided by Ferrari.

The Ferrari FXX program continued until 2009 (2007-2009), with the FXX Evoluzione. The FXX Evoluzione was improved from the standard FXX by continually adjusting specifics to generate more power and quicker gear changes, along with reducing the car's aerodynamic drag. The V12 engine under the Evoluzione kit generates 860 PS (633 kW; 848 hp) at 9,500 rpm and enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds. Certain changes were made to the gearbox in order to reduce the shift time to 60 milliseconds per shift, a reduction of 20 milliseconds over the original FXX. The car also underwent aerodynamic changes and improvements to the traction control system were made in order to make the car more responsive around the track.
Up until today, I had no idea you could make a Ferrari FXX street legal, anywhere. But it turns out there are at least two such vehicles in the world, including the one pictured above, which is claimed to be the only street-legal version of the hotter FXX Evoluzione in existence. For just $12.5 million, it's yours to keep.
To get it roadworthy in the UK, the original owner sent this car back to Ferrari, where it was fitted with softer suspension with a slightly higher ride height. A front-axle lifter, brake lights, turn signals, handbrake, and headlights were all added to let this thing legally wear a license plate and drive on public roads.
Supercar dealer Amari, where the car is listed, says this FXX Evoluzione was first registered in the UK in 2015. But given the vast differences in regional street-legal requirements, we wouldn't assume that means you could register it anywhere else.
Currently, this FXX Evoluzione is wearing street tires, but it's still mostly comprised of the stuff that made the original track-only configuration so exciting. Its naturally-aspirated 6.3-liter V12 produces nearly 900 hp at 9500 rpm, and it accelerates from 0-60 in a claimed 2.8 seconds, with carbon ceramic brakes to help haul it down from a nearly 250-mph top speed.
This car also comes with all of its original factory parts in boxes, in case you want to convert it back to track-only spec. It's only been driven 1300 miles since new—low miles for a street car, but a sizable number for something that was originally meant for the track only.
While the dealer calls this the world's only street-legal FXX, a quick internet search turned up this example modified by Edo Competition to be road-legal in Germany. Edo Competition also turned a wrecked Enzo street car into a road-legal FXX tribute, dubbed the ZXX.
This FXX is, obviously, incredibly expensive, but it's more special (and rare) than any standard Enzo. And you know for certain you'll never run into someone driving a car identical to yours.

What do you buy for the car collector who has everything? In this case, the world’s only street-legal Ferrari Enzo FXX. It’s up for sale in the U.K. with an asking price of £9,999,999 (or about $12 million).
This particular Enzo is one of just 38 examples that came from the factory new in 2008, but wasn’t registered as road legal until 2015. The conversion was done by Ferrari directly, and even comes with all the original components – meaning the new buyer could convert it back into a pure track car if they feel so inclined.
In the transformation from track car to road car, Ferrari wanted to make sure it was a bit friendlier for the street. A softer suspension was fitted with an adjustable ride height, ensuring it can conquer any speed bump in its path. Turn signals and brake lights were also added, as were things like a handbrake, street tires, a horn, and main beam headlights.
Thankfully, the 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V12 remains, producing 850 horsepower (633 kilowatts) with a top speed of somewhere around 247 miles per hour (397 kilometers per hour). All that power is paired to a six-speed sequential racing gearbox, allowing it to race to 60 mph (96 kmh) in just 2.5 seconds, and to ensure stopping power, the original carbon ceramic brakes remain.
Even though it's now almost ten years old, the car has driven jut 1,300 miles (2,092 kilometers) since new, and wears its original Rosso Corsa red exterior with white accenting stripes and FXX logos aplenty. Inside, the cabin is pretty sparse. You’ll find a pair of black cloth seats, an Alcantara steering wheel, a custom rear-view mirror… and not much else among the many carbon fiber fixtures.

Ferrari produced only 29 of these cars for their Corse Clienti Programme between 2007 and 2008. Selected customers were invited to buy the cars. The customers had to pay £2,500,000 for the privilege of owning the car but they were not allowed to take delivery. The cars were kept at the Ferrari Test Track for telemetry to help develop the LaFerrari and FXX-K. For £10,000 per session clients were invited to come and watch them. A few of the 29 were developed into FXX Evoluzione specification for a further cost of £1,000,000, this is such an example.
In 2012 the programme ended and the cars were released to their owners.
This example was sent back to Ferrari to be converted to UK Road Legal specification to become the only one of its type in the world.

Michael Schumacher selling Ferrari FXX and Enzo
Garage Zenith, world-famous supercar dealer, has announced a few months ago the sale of two very special Ferraris, which both used to belong to Formula 1 superstar and seven-time F1 championship winner Michael Schumacher. This is all about a Ferrari FXX and an Enzo.
The two supercars were especially built for Schumacher, with customizations based on his preferences. Moreover, they were finished during his stay at Ferrari. In terms of ride, the Enzo has done 5,280 miles so far, or around 8,500 km, and boasts with some famous signatures under its bonnet, like the one of Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo.
The FXX on the other hand has only been driven for a meager 559 miles, or approximately 900 km, and it’s the only Ferrari FXX in the world to have been painted under a black scheme. The car has even featured in a Top Gear episode from 2009, when Michael himself drove it on their test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome.
What’s more interesting is that Michael hasn’t had to pay a penny for the cars, since they were gifted to him by Ferrari, as tokens of appreciation for his achievements and his efforts while at Ferrari. In terms of costs, you can’t call them bargains – the FXX can be yours for around $2.67 million, while the Enzo can be had for $1.47 million.
