Although he had a disappointing Formula One season, finishing only fifth in the driver standings, Sebastian Vettel ended 2014 on a high note, signing a three-year deal with Scuderia Ferrari. The move not only fulfilled Vettel’s long-time dream to drive for the Italians, but also granted the German access to Maranello’s latest supercars, one of which is the bonkers FXX K.
If you’ve been following TopSpeed lately, you probably know Vettel hooned Ferrari’s new, track-only car around the Fiorano test course while answering questions from his fans. While the footage released from that stint wasn’t exactly exciting, Ferrari is now back with a two-minute video showing the German driver putting the FXX K through its paces the way he should have from the very beginning: fast and with a big grin on his face.
And I can’t blame him for having the time of his life. The FXX K is an ultra-rare supercar that very few people get to enjoy. Aside from the people involved in the project, only 30 lucky and filthy rich customers will get to drive this monster on select race tracks around the world. What’s more, they won’t even get to take their race-spec LaFerraris home, despite paying nearly $3 million for one, as these supercars are stored exclusively at Ferrari’s headquarters when not on the track — a stunt only an exclusive automaker such as Ferrari could get away with.
