he innovative FXX programme, based on the eponymous prototype
car and launched by Ferrari in June 2005, is being extended to 2008/2009.
The FXX, which is the most advanced GT ever created at Maranello, has been
updated with an evolution package aimed at further improving its handling and
performance. The package was developed as a result of Ferrari's collaboration
with its Client Test Drivers and with the invaluable support of Michael
Schumacher. The FXXs equipped with this package will also sport a new livery
in addition to new rear wing profiles.
The FXX is not homologated for road use and there are no plans to compete
with it either. In fact, the FXX prototype is designed exclusively for track driving
as part of a specific R&D programme agreed with a selected group of just over
20 clients involving 14 group test sessions and 14 private ones in the last two
years. Thanks to readings taken over the 16,500 kilometres of tests carried
out in 2006 and the 18,500 kilometres covered in 2007, the modifications
made to the car have focused on honing its aerodynamics, running gear and
electronics. Seven-times Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher also
joined the ranks of the client test drivers and gave the programme the benefit
of his vast experience on several occasions.
Maranello's engineers studied the wealth of information gained to develop a kit
which will cut the FXX's Fiorano lap time to under 1'16'' (previously it was
1'18''). The FXX's 6262 cc V12 engine can now punch out a massive 860 hp at
9500 rpm. Gearshifting takes just 60 ms, a drop of 20 ms on the previous time,
and the gear ratios have been adapted to make use of the extra 1000 rpm now
delivered by the engine.

The car's new traction control system, developed in close collaboration with
the GES Racing Division engineers, gives the driver a choice of no less than
nine different settings (plus the off position) which are selected using a switch
on the central tunnel. This means that the driver really can modify the car's
behaviour on the track from corner to corner, just as the Formula 1 drivers do
to maximise performance and reduce tyre wear. The FXX's traction control is
also now less invasive and more flexible, adapting more efficiently to the
individual driving style of each driver - a requirement pinpointed when this very
extreme car was being driven on the track by non-professional drivers.

The FXX's special 19" Bridgestone tyres now last longer too thanks to a new
car setup and new front suspension geometry, while the Brembo brakes, which
boast large Composite Ceramic Material (CCM) discs, are more efficient with
the result that the brake pads last twice as long. Thanks to the drivers'
feedback the Ferrari engineers have also developed new aerodynamic
solutions aimed at increasing downforce over the rear axle. The FXX now
sports a new rear diffuser, nolder and rear flaps which have combined to
increase aerodynamic efficiency by 25% overall. The active front spoiler
control system settings have been adjusted to take these modifications into
account too. New telemetry monitoring of the steering angle and brake pump
pressure will further boost the interaction between Client test drivers and the
company's engineers also. From next year onwards, it will be possible for
drivers to have two extra video cameras mounted on their car in addition the
existing rear-facing one. This will, of course, give the drivers excellent rear
visibility without having to impinge in any way on the car's aerodynamics.

The FXX evolution package includes participation in a series of track events
that Ferrari is organising at international circuits for 2008/2009. Six events are
planned for each year (two in North America, two in Europe and two in Asia). In
addition to these, the FXXs will also be participating, as per tradition, in the
prestigious end-of-season Ferrari World Finals.

As happened in 2006/2007, the cars will be backed up at each event by a
15-member official team made up of engineers, electronics experts and
mechanics capable of providing complete assistance to clients. Needless to
say, the latter will still be able to organise their own private individual track
sessions in their car as well.
FXX programme extended for further two years
thanks to new evolution kit developed with
assistance of Client Test-Drivers.
