Rule Number 1, Never Use A Track Car For A Rally Event

Watch this inglorious bastered nee gentleman racer try to master the Ferrari FXX at the Targa Newfoundland Rally, an annual 2,200-kilometre (1,400 mi) long road rally held over a seven-day period in September in Canada, Ehh!

The Ferrari FXX is based on the Enzo but has been developed into an exotic Frankenstein track-racer by Ferrari for exclusive customers, ehh!

The Enzo’s V12 displacement was increased to 6,262 cc (6.3 L; 382.1 cu in) from 5,998 cc (6.0 L; 366.0 cu in). That means an increase of horsepower from the Enzo’s 670 PS (492.8 kW; 660.8 hp), to the FXX’s 820 PS (603 kW; 809 hp) at 8,500 rpm.

All that FXX power translates into a 0-62mph time of 3 second and a top speed of 227mph, ehh!  Only 30 FXX’s were ever made, between 2005-2007, each costing a cool £2m GBP, this was due to FXX using  a lot of race derived technology. The FXX was designed to show Ferrari’s motor sport prowess, to the extreme.
