Ferrari reveal the LA Ferrari FXX K, BMW offer the most expensive paint job and Volvo developing new engine technology.
One of the worlds most popular sports car manufacturers Ferrari have today revealed their brand new La Ferrari FXX K model which is about to become one of the most powerful sports cars that Ferrari have to offer. It has been confirmed by the mass manufacturer that this car will deliver a whopping 1,036 brake horse power output. With these kind of figures announced, it comes as no surprise that this car will only be offered on the track and not on public roads. The first La Ferrari model boasted an amazing 950bhp and was put on sale for a total cost of one million.
The FXX K will blow that out of the water though with a purchase price of around two million. All of this power is delivered via a 6.3 litre,V12 engine unit and Ferrari have confirmed that the car will only be made available to pre selected buyers and can only be used on special Ferrari track days. A top speed of 217 miles per hour has also gone on record. Nothing has been announced as to how many units of the vehicle will be produced but around the thirty area could be expected which was the same amount of the £2,000,000 Enzo FXX model.
