A dealership in Dubai is selling a lightly used 2015 Ferrari FXX K for €3.6 million or the equivalent of about $4 million. That’s an insane amount of money for any car, but when you consider that another dealership in Florida is trying to unload a 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari (on which the FXX K is based) for $5 million, this starts to look like somewhat of a bargain. Of course, because the FXX K can only be used on racetracks, you might get a lot more use out of the LaFerrari.

Ferrari is completely sold out of FXX Ks, so this might be your last chance to buy one before Ferrari’s first official Corse Clienti for these amazing cars starts later this month at the Hungaroring, near Budapest. Ferrari recently completed the FXX K’s final test session at Imola, so this will be the first time “client-testers” — aka rich guys who bought both an FXX K and the privilege of participating in its two-year test program — will get a go behind the wheel of their track-only, hybrid supercars.

The FXX K is basically what happens when you put a LaFerrari on a steady diet of kale smoothies and send it to the gym for a few hours a day. Its 6.3-liter V-12 works in concert with a hair-trigger electric motor to produce 1,050 horsepower. Not only is it lighter than the LaFerrari, its active-aerodynamics package produces an incredible 1,190 pounds of downforce at 124 mph. Top speed is 217 mph and 0-60 takes just 2.8 seconds.

This particular FXX K is red with a black interior. Mileage isn’t listed, but because the Corse Clienti program hasn’t started yet, the current owner is unlikely to have ever driven or even seen the car.

Why it matters

Because they’re so rare and the XX program hasn’t been around for all that long (only the Enzo-based 2005 Ferrari FXX and 2009 Ferrari 599XX preceeded it), it’s hard to gauge if $4 million for an FXX K is a good investment, but I’m inclined to say probably not. Though, to be fair, you’ll probably have an above-average amount of fun in it. Pure Ferrari road cars have always held their value well, but past XX models haven’t sold for anywhere close to the asking price of this car. An FXX owned by Michael Schumacher (yes, that Michael Schumacher) sold in 2013 for $2.66 million.
