Ferrari FXX K Tested On Fiorano: Video
YouTuber Shmee150 loves highly bolstered racing seats and high-octane gasoline. As part of his whirlwind European tour, this video showcases one day in the trek around Italy. Press play and you’ll find lots of automotive goodness, including a test drive in the 458 Speciale, a 2015 FXX K on track at Fiorano, and a bit of cruising in a McLaren 650S Spider.
It’s all pretty standard Shmee, with that characteristic passion and excitement. And who can blame him? Here he is witnessing firsthand some of the finest that Ferrari can offer smack dab in the middle of the prancing horse’s home turf.
Other notable automobiles include a white 458 GT3 and a yellow BMW M4. Before these exploits in Maranello, Shmee got behind the wheel of a flat-black Pagani Huayra to get a taste of the torque from that twin-turbo V-12. It’s enough to make any car enthusiast more than a little jealous.
In the world of high-end supercars, there is no “ultimate,” just a benchmark that hasn’t been broken yet. But when it comes to describing the FXX K, it’s hard not to dig into your bag of superlatives. That’s because this car is based on the LaFerrari, the fastest road-legal vehicle to ever wear the badge. Ferrari took those hyper-powered hybrid roots and used them to create an absolute track monster. It’s part of the Italian automaker’s “Client-Test Drivers” program, which sees wealthy wannabe hot shoes plunking down $3.1 million for the opportunity to take one of the 30 FXX Ks out for a spin at tracks and times of Ferrari’s choosing.
