As if the LaFerrari wasn’t perfect enough , Ferrari has decided to go a step further and bring out an ultra-track focused version of the LaFerrari. The Ferrari FXX K, much like the Enzo FXX is  part of Ferrari’s Research and Development program. The letter K stands for “KERS- kinetic energy recovery system” , which was developed so as to maximize track performance.The Hypercar will  make official debut at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi . The FXX K will only be available to a select few , who are handpicked to be a part of Ferrari driver development program.

So what has changed? Apart from the obvious beefy appearance , the car also gets quite a bit of performance upgrades . For starters this hypercar produces a good 87PS more power than the LaFerrari , at 1050Ps(1036 hp). Of this power 860PS (848hp) is provided by the 6.3 Liter naturally aspirated V8 ,and the rest by an electric motor inside.Transmission duties will be done by a 7-speed DCT
