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.

Back in 2006, Ferrari introduced a whole new way for the rich to be separated from some of their cash, by building a track only version of the Enzo supercar. This new car was called the FXX and while initially only 29 were to be made, by the time production ended, 38 were built.

Now one of these $2-million track day specials is up for sale, and while it currently sits in Italy at Ferrari’s Corse Clienti department, the owner of this car (chassis no. 146359) is from Toronto, Canada.

According to this cars history, the owner Lorne Leibel drove the FXX in every single Corse Clienti event held around the world and will give its new owner a heart-stopping ride in the next event at Infineon Raceway in May.

This particular example was also given the Evo upgrade package which raised the power to 860 hp. To date it has covered 5000 kms (3105-miles) and while no sale price has been given, you can bet it’ll be worth more than most peoples houses.

Ferrari FXX Destroys Record on Top Gear Test Track

Michael Schumacher, aka The Stig, pilots Ferrari track car

Top Gear kicked off a new season in the U.K. with two big stunts. For starters, it revealed that The Stig is none other than Michael Schumacher.

More amazingly, however, the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion piloted his very own black Ferrari FXX  around the Top Gear test track completely obliterating the previous record held by the Gumpert Apollo. The Gumpert’s best lap was an incredible 1:17, while the 800hp 6.3-liter V12 FXX crossed the line in just 1:10. As it’s not street-legal, however, we wouldn’t exactly call this matchup a fair fight.
