A few days ago we saw a video of the LaFerrari XX prototype tearing up Monza. That footage showcased a version of the hybrid hyper car so brutally powerful, it broke its own suspension and nearly lost a wheel. Turns out that is what happens when you introduce an extra 100 horsepower to the LaFerrari’s chassis.
The standard, road-going version of the LaFerrari has a V12-KERs engine with around 950 horsepower. The hard-core, track-focused, Corse Clienti-special LaFerrari XX is reportedly getting an extra 100 hp, bringing the total to a massive 1,050 horsepower. That means this race car will have as much power as JMB Optimering’s tuned LaFerrari.
But it’s not just about the power. LaFerrari XX will also be lighter and benefit from revised aerodynamics. It gets wider fenders with fatter slick tires, racing suspension, and bigger spoilers and splitters. It’ll be an utter monster compared to the road car, which is itself a vicious animal.
Ferrari is also said to be developing a LaFerrari Spider, which if green-lighted, will be limited to just 50 units, each carrying a price tag of nearly $3 million. The XX version should also cost the same sort of money, but it’ll limited to 30 units.
