Nothing surprises us anymore when it comes to Ferrari. Its relentless pursuit of building some of the world’s most extreme supercars knows no bounds.

And after Autocar reported that there are plans to build an extreme version of its newest hypercar, the LaFerrari, it all seemed par for the course for the Italian automaker.

With the LaFerrari limited to just 499 units, Ferrari wants to build an even more exclusive version of the 963-horsepower hypercar. That’s what Flavio Manzoni, the LaFerrari’s chief designer, told Autocar. Could this possibly be the LaFerrari EVOXX that we spoke of back in March?

“When we were producing the original design proposals for LaFerrari,” said Manzoni, “there was one proposal that I thought was especially beautiful. So we decided to keep that one back for something truly special in the future.”

That "something truly special" appears to be this mystery hypercar that could pack well north of 1,000 horsepower. Talk about its exclusivity should be one of the most important details of this vehicle; Manzoni estimates that no more than 10 could be built with an estimated price tag of anywhere between £3 million ($4.67 million) and £5 million ($7.78 million).

When Ferrari finally unveiled the LaFerrari at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, we thought we’d seen everything. Turns out, we’re just scratching the surface of what the Italian automaker has planned for its new crown jewel.

That being said, the LaFerrari is a Prancing Horse with evil red eyes and equally evil intent. The design is absolutely breathtaking with the F1-inspired aerodynamics and delivers a drag coefficient of nearly 0.3.

More importantly, the LaFerrari packs an absolutely staggering powertrain comprised of a 6.3-liter V-12 engine with two electric motors. When working together, the electromechanical drivetrain produces a total of 963 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers translate to a 0-to-60 mph time of less than 3 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
