Now that the road-going version of LaFerrari is launched and customer deliveries have begun, Ferrari is said to be working the next big thing, a track-spec version of the car as a successor to the Enzo FXX. Dubbed LaFerrari XX, the new Corse Clienti racing machine could boast a twin-turbo V6 instead of the V12 engine you find in the road car.
The Formula One-derived powertrain in LaFerrari XX will be assisted by a hybrid system in much the same way the standard LaFerrari gets HY-KERS system to achieve its brutal turn of speed and acceleration. Ferrari started using turbochargers again after 25 years with the new California, and it seems they like the results.
Ferrari admits that achieving the same amount of power as the V12-KERS system with the twin-turbo V6 will be difficult. After all, the petrol engine alone is 6.3 liter big and generates 800 horsepower on its own. The hybrid unit provides an additional 160 hp and works non-stop to complement the workings of the main motor.
Being a track car, LaFerrari XX will come with different suspension and electronic systems than the road car, plus revised aerodynamics and racing wheels and tires. As for the pricing, set aside a couple of millions if you fancy one.
