With the LaFerrari-based FXX-K being confirmed for GT7, the Enzo-based FXX would also be a good partner to it and other "track day, sir?" cars.

Engine: 6262cc Ferrari Tipo F140 DA V12
Power: 789 BHP
Weight: 1155 kg/2550 lb

In 2005, Ferrari developed a non-street-legal, track-only model and announced a special program for customers of this car. This was the Ferrari FXX, and the FXX Program.

The FXX was based on the special model that was sold in limited numbers in 2002, the Enzo. The monocoque and body panels utilised carbon composites to reduce the weight down to 1155 kg, and aerodynamics were refined to give it 40% more downforce than the original Enzo. The latest technology at Ferrari was poured into its development.

Based on the 5998 cc V12, the displacement was increased to 6262 cc, producing 788 BHP and 70 kgfm torque. The shift speed of the paddle-shift transmission was almost equal to that of F1 machines, and the car was without a doubt the fastest machine ever to be sold to customers. With its electronic devices disabled, it was an extreme car that would even make professional racing drivers work for their money.

29 drivers that were approved by Ferrari to become owners of this car participated in the FXX program. The owners received professional tutelage to drive the FXX on circuits, and 39 different data points were collected to utilise in future super sportscar development. In essence, this meant FXX owners had the unique opportunity of participating in the creation of next-generation Ferrari cars as test drivers.

The base package price for the car and the program was announced to be 1.5 million Euros. This was a dream project only made possible by a company like Ferrari.
