German tuner DMC has been responsible for creating some of the most mental aftermarket programs we’ve seen in the past few years.
But the render it did for the Ferrari LaFerrari just took the insanity to a whole new level. There are some programs that certainly fits this definition, but none of them were done on the LaFerrari, the Prancing Horse’s crown jewel supercar that the company has described as its fastest and most powerful supercar it has ever built.
The result is the LaFerrari FXXR, a heavily-modified take on the LaFerrari that’s just too mean for words.
DMC made no mention of mechanical mods, with exception of a race-inspired exhaust, so we assume this LaFerrari retains the hybrid system that combines a 6.3-liter, V-12 engine with two electric motors. The exhaust system may drive the LaFerrari up a little rfom the stock 963 horsepower and more than 663 pound-feet of torque.
There’s no word on whether DMC is going to go ahead and build this program, but for just sheer lunacy, we’re hoping and praying that the tuning company goes ahead with this.
The world needs it, fellas.

Notice that DMC took the liberty of putting in aerodynamic components that not only added to the visual appeal of the supercar, but also enhanced its performance and handling capabilities. Up front, the vertical center fin in the bumper and the lower horizontal fin are now gone. In their place, DMC installed a pair of carbon-fiber air intakes angled into a V-shape, a tactic it used to extend the line of the large central air vent on the front hood and make it more aesthetically profound.
Improving downforce was also an important aspect of the FXXR, and DMC accomplished this by adding clear carbon-fiber canards on the corners of the front bumper. Those are joined by a smaller air intake that can be found in the center of the bumper, flanked by more intakes next to headlights.
This new setup also has outer intakes inside the large bumper that have been angled differently, allowing more air to come into the car. Handling was also an important quality that DMC paid attention to. Vertical fins on the side of the front bumper helps keep the supercar stabilized at high speeds. There’s also an additional air intake in the sides that allows the brake discs to continuously be kept cooled down.
At the rear, the massive clear carbon-fiber rear wing is hard to ignore. The red taillights are gone, too, replaced by smoked, black-finished units while the exhaust system doesn’t have the chrome tips anymore. In their place, DMC opted for four matte black variants.

Back in the Sixties you had the beautiful 250 GTO … one was recently sold for $52,000,000 in fact, after that several more ‘specials’ have left the factory doors at Maranello like the 288 GTO, the F40 which also had a lightweight LM edition. Later on the Enzo was turned into the FXX track day car while the 599 GTO evolved into the 599 XX for track use … and then the F70 comes along … called the LaFerrari by the factory, featuring a very innovative design … and upward opening doors tilting forward … remember the McLaren F1 doors?
So how do you improve perfection … easy, you take the Ferrari pedigree of GTO, XX and FXX and translate that onto a bright red LaFerrari … and you end up with a LaFerrari FXXR by DMC, without changing the basic DNA of the car DMC managed to make this Ferrari look a lot more aggressive compared to factory specs while retaining the animal like beauty found on the original.
Up front the color coded vertical center fin in the bumper is gone, so is the lower, horizontal fin in the same color … in come two carbon fiber air intakes angled at a V-shape that extends the line of the large central air vent on the front hood … right in the middle of the lower section the Prancing Horse proudly finds its home. The outer intakes inside this large bumper are angled differently to draw even more air in, naturally the side of the front bumper now features vertical fins to stabilize the LaFerrari FXXR at high speed while an additional intake carved in the sides of this unit help to keep the disc brakes cooled down.
The corners of the front bumper receive clear carbon fiber ‘canards’ that increase down force at speed while a smaller air intake is sculpted right in the center of the bumper, joining additional intakes next to the headlights, which remain standard to avoid certification issues keeping this car street legal … if that would be a pre-requisite.
Next to the stylish headlights that run high into the fenders we also have extra vents … you can never have enough cooling on a car like the LaFerrari FXXR by DMC, that is why just in front of the windshield two more intakes are perfectly molded into the hood … which on this car receives black details to get that really mean look when the car pulls up behind you on the highway … I guess one flash of the high beams will be enough to get those slower cars in front of you to move over in fear … increasing the heart rate of the driver you are bound to pass stupendously fast … with a thundering sound being emitted from the race inspired exhaust…
If they are quick enough they will just have enough time to admire the massive, clear carbon fiber rear wing, which is fully adjustable naturally, sitting on top of an almost completely blacked out rear section of the LaFerrari FXXR by DMC. The original red taillights are replaced by smoked, black finished units, just like the new exhaust system that no longer shows bright chrome tips but instead four matte black ‘mouths’ breathe fire now … add a clear carbon fiber lower diffuser wi
