The world’s most exclusive Ferrari is heading to RM Auctions on May 12, and could be yours for an estimated price of $1.7 to $2.2 million.
Ferrari only produced 30 of its 860-hp FXX Evoluzione supercars and this particular example has only had one owner and has always been kept at the Ferrari factory’s Corse Clienti department. The 2006 FXX Evoluzione comes with a 6.3-liter V12 mated to a six-speed, paddle-shift F1-style transmission and is a must have for any die-hard Ferrari collector.
The second-generation Evoluzione is Ferrari’s most advanced GT car and weighs in at a scant 2,500 lbs. Combine that with 860-hp and you have a 0-60 mph time of just 2.8 seconds. Compared to the standard FXX, the Evoluzione model also sports a new rear diffuser and rear flaps, helping improve aerodynamic efficiency by 25 percent.
This car also features a stunning color combination of jet black with the infamous Italian ‘Tricolore’ on the front and rear of the car. The owner will also get a number of spare parts with the purchase.
You can watch a video on the Ferrari FXX Evoluzione below.
