I never heard about this - basically a racer based on the Enzo now that Maserati is no longer part of the company (I think that the MC12 was supposed to be the racer Enzo)?

Looks a tad com-gen, but mean at the same time. I'm suprised Fiat allowed such a model to compete with the MC12 (although with limited numbers, the market is expected to sell all models)
06-15-2005, 06:17 AM
this one looks so much like MC12... sooo, there won't be an F60? is that what many believe will be an F60?

The wealth of data and experience gathered in the course of this very special programme will be exceptionally important.<br>In fact, the feedback from these highly skilled, non-professional Client Test Drivers will be compared and supplemented with suggestions from Michael Schumacher, Rubens Barrichello and Ferraris professional in-house Test Drivers.<p>Every Client who signs up for the FXX project by purchasing one of the estimated 20 or so cars being built, will actually be joining Team Ferrari, and will have his driving experiences at the wheel of this new car monitored directly by the Prancing Horses technicians and specialists.<p>The FXX is the fruit of Ferraris know-how in building special limited-series sports cars combined with, of course, its racing experience. It will provide the basic framework on which the specifics of future extreme models will be worked out. The exceptionally powerful FXX delivers absolutely blistering performance on all fronts.<p>The FXX has not been homologated for road use and thus will not be a competition model. It will be used exclusively on the track as part of a specific ongoing research and development programme featuring this first ever group of Client Test Drivers.<p>The FXX is powered by an imposing <B>6,262 cc V12 engine that can punch out over 800 hp at 8,500 rpm</B>. Its gearbox is the result of the transfer of F1 strategies, delivering gear change times of under 100 ms. This is almost as fast as the F1 single-seaters, themselves the absolute pinnacle of current technological achievement.<p>The FXXs aerodynamic design is particularly innovative too as it has resulted in a shape that produces 40% higher downforce than ever achieved before. It is also possible to adjust the FXXs mobile spoiler configuration to suit the specific circuit.<p>Ferraris partnership with Bridgestone has resulted in the development of a specific 19 slick tyre for this particular model. Likewise Brembo has created a special brake cooling and pad system for the FXXs extra large Composite Ceramic Material disc brakes.<p>The Client Test Drivers will also be able to share their unique track experience with a passenger in fact a second seat is available.<p>What really sets the FXX apart, however, is the sophisticated telemetry system which will monitor and give feedback on 39 different vehicle dynamics parameters in real time. The system is also able to record other data as demanded by specific circumstances.<p>The information gathered will then be analysed by the Ferrari technicians working on the programme and discussed with the individual Client Drivers to ensure that the car is kept constantly updated.<p>The FXX package also includes participation in a series of track events to be organised by Ferrari on various international-level circuits over the coming two years. On these occasions, an official team of technicians will be on hand to provide any assistance and support required by the Client Test Driver.<p>In addition to these truly unique official events, Clients will also be able to take their cars out on the track independently during private sessions. Clients wishing to leave their car at Maranello will be glad to know that the vehicles will be transported directly by Ferrari to the various European circuits for the scheduled events.<p>Given the cars exceptional performance and the unique nature of the package, delivery of each FXX will also include an ad hoc driving course. The instructors will, of course, be professional drivers and the courses will take place at the Fiorano Circuit where Ferrari does its most important F1 single-seaters testing. <p>After the seat and the pedals have been individually tailored to each driver, there will be a traditional shakedown followed by a training session dedicated to test driving methodologies.<p>After a careful client order selection process, the first FXXs will be delivered by the end of this year. The initial testing of the definitive car is currently taking place at Fiorano. <B>The FXX and the relative package cost a total of 1.5 million euro (excluding taxes) and applications to join the programme are being evaluated by a special in-house committee</B>.<br></TD></TR></TABLE><BR><BR>

the Enzo was the F60 ..<br>ferrari even had the name F60 on there website but the .. poff .. the "word" F60 was gone from there site..<p>
06-15-2005, 08:24 AM
Please don't start this argument here as well. It's been talked to death already.
06-15-2005, 10:09 AM
No one will ever believe the other side on that argument, its useless. But this car is a quite interesting idea, it should allow Ferrari to fine tune their next generation of cars to suit their clientle a lot better. This could be a huge benefit to Ferrari and easily put them on top of the supercar pile.
06-15-2005, 11:46 AM
So Ferrari is finally showing us the engine that will power the next flagship. 800 hp sounds pretty good......now lets just hope the F60 (or whatever it will be called), will look better than the enzo.

It looks like a race-car that has been homologated for road use. Surprisingly, this looks to be a reskinned MC12, which in turn was based on the Enzo. The giveaway is the front overhang.

06-16-2005, 10:57 AM
Well I've registered specially for this thread. The Enzo prototype was called F60 and FX by the media. It's really very understandable that they would call it the F60 because all hypercars that Ferrari introduced in the last decades were cars produced to cellebrate yet another 10 years of Ferrari. The F50 came two years early (1995) to be the official "50 years of Ferrari car"but it still was. Logically the media assumed this was the F60. Jeremy Clarkson calls it the F60, but he's wrong. Anyway when the Enzo was launched, Ferrari told the media that this was actually the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari (as it is called officially). This FXX however is an 800bhp Enzo with a limited production of 20 which isn't produced for road OR the racetrack, but for a single purpouse: to involve Loyal Ferrari customers in teh testing of new technologies. Ferrari will treat this input as worthy as that of Michal Schumacher, Barrichello and all the official testdrivers. It's a chance for Customers to share their ideas about this technology from the FXX and Ferrari will use it for the designing of future GT cars. On the whole F60 item, I think Ferrari will launch an all new limited car in 2007 which they will call the F60. It's 5 years between Enzo's launch (2002) and the F60 (2007) and that's more than enough not to kill the Enzo's value.
06-16-2005, 07:45 PM
The FFX's rear spoiler look on the side end looks like F40 and F50. I love this design like enzo already. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/eek2.gif" BORDER="0">
06-20-2005, 01:13 AM
Jeez, enough on the whole "naming" debate! Not meaning to be harsh, it's just one of those discussions that goes nowhere, y'know? I think we give far too much credit to Ferrari for the "method" by which they name their cars anyway. They meet, they discuss, they bestow. No grand plan, to my eyes.<p>Anyway, I'm very surprised by this car. I didn't think they'd do a hi-po "reissue" of an existing, albeit discontinued, line. My own speculation on this thread was that this wasn't going to be made (I humbly repent). Just goes to show, anything can happen! <p>I'm with those questioning the styling though: The lights, nose, stripes and girthy tail look fugly. The MC12 seemed a little more elegant, even with that big honking butt.
06-20-2005, 07:24 AM
With an 800Hp engine and the weight of a normal enzo or even less, what's this thing going to do in numbers!?!?! (0-60, topspeed etc). I'm guessing 0-60 in 3,0 seconds and a topspeed of around 400 Km/h

I saw pictures of it in one of my car magazines, but I just viewed the link. The real question is, why is it yellow? Was it the first one made? The last? Was it done for a special driver?

06-26-2006, 01:25 PM
Doesn't seem to state why only one yellow one was made. I seriously doubt it's the pace car, since it also has numbers on it.<p>800bhp is a lot but having 29 of these crazy cars racing against each other could be a hoot. Will it be a full out series with a full calender of races for the FFX? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">

Woah, the silver enzo looks quite good, I don't recall seeing a silver enzo before.<p>I am guessing these are track only, like the other ferrari series, since I recall you could buy a 360 challange and then race it, this was on some 5th gear episode I believe. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/1zhelp.gif" BORDER="0">

Maybe these are pics from the driving school you have to go to when you buy the car to learn how to drive it? all those other colors are really amazing. i love the white especially. makes it look much cleaner and sportier. also the black versions of the regular wheels really do something for the car.
so this is the "super enzo" production car

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.<p>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.<p>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.<p>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.<p>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.<p>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.<p>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.</TD></TR></TABLE>
