Exclusive: LaFerrari XX debut confirmed for Abu Dhabi later this week

Article by Christian A., on December 1, 2014

Finali Mondiali 2014 a.k.a. the world’s biggest Ferrari event will be hosted for the first time in history away from European soil and brought to Abu Dhabi. The event will showcase over 250 exotic as well as limited series Ferraris and we will have a chance to see them from 3 to 6 December at the Yas Marina Circuit.

The Finali Mondiali weekend will conclude Ferrari’s racing year with the final races of the three Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli Series (Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific) as well as the grand finale on Saturday. What not many of you folks don’t know is that the LaFerrari XX will also make its debut in Abu Dhabi and our source confirmed the fact that the vehicle will be shown to special customers who are heading there.

We already know that the vehicle will arrive with 1050 hp, which makes it more powerful than the road-going version and also more powerful than the McLaren P1 GTR. Although some reports suggested that the LaFerrari XX will get a turbocharged V6 engine, the track-focused vehicle will arrive with the same powertrain as the road car, which means a V12 engine and an electric motor.

When it comes to design, expect to see a stripped-down interior, bucket seats, a rollcage, as well as an updated design and racing wheels and tires. Just like the other XX models from Ferrari, the LaFerrari XX production will be limited to around 30 units and each will carry a price tag of around $ 3.1 million or 2.5 million euros.

As expected, the LaFerrari XX is a car built for the racetrack and Ferrari wants to see these vehicles being driven at company’s Corse Clienti programme which includes 8 annual races around the world. We don’t have any details regarding the performances of the vehicle, but we expect it to be much faster than the Enzo-based FXX.

For those who don’t know, the Ferrari FXX managed to lap the Fiorano racetrack in 1 minute and 16 seconds when driven by Martino Lopez, back in 2007. As we said, we have no details regarding the performances of the vehicle but it will be much faster than the road-going version which is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 15 seconds.

The standard version uses a 6.3-liter V12 engine delivering 800 hp and 700 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm, while the electric motor develops an additional 120 kw (163 hp). The total output of the vehicle is 963 hp.
