Ferrari’s fortunes in Formula One, as of late, have not exactly been up to the Scuderia’s standards, but that could all change for 2015. They’ve got a cracking good driver in the form of Sebastian Vettel, perhaps you’ve heard of him, who we suspect is eager to showcase his four-time-consecutive-world-championship skills in a new car.
That show of speed will have to wait until the Australian Grand Prix. In the meantime, Vettel has been hooning around in Ferrari’s newest track-only menace – the 1,036 horsepower FXX K hypercar. If his direct quote, “Mamma mia! It goes like a rocket!” is any indication, it’s safe to say he had a good time. Take a look.
Aside from its epic performance on track, the FXX K is simply an astonishing sight to behold. Ferrari more or less took its already mind-melting LaFerrari hypercar, ripped all the unnecessary bits out, and transformed what was left into a track monster. As such, it’ll lap Ferrari’s 1.8 mile Fiorano test circuit a staggering five seconds faster than the LaFerrari. And would you listen to that noise!
Time will tell if Ferrari can turn around its performance on the F1 grid, but the Prancing Horse seems to be having a hell of a good time in its road and track-car divisions.
