Over the weekend at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, Ferrari officially introduced the Evo kit, previewed for the first time in November last year during the Finali Mondiali at Mugello, Italy. The new kit is fitted on three cars, while the first FXX K Evo native cars are expected later in the Corse Clienti season.
The most prominent feature of the new kit is improved aerodynamics, the result of over a year’s work in the wind tunnel. There is an increase in downforce, thanks to the use of a new twin-profile fixed wing. The two bumpers, front underbody and exhaust pipe have also been revised.
The design of the front brake air intakes has been modified in line with the increased performance of the Evo version of the FXX K, while all data from the new telemetry system are shown on the display inside the passenger compartment.
There’s also a new steering wheel, said to be easier to handle and even more suitable for intensive track use where there are quick turns required.
The cars of the XX Programmes starred at the first ever Ferrari Racing Days at the Circuit of the Americas, deploying a fearsome output of nearly 20,000 bhp between them. More than 100 Ferrari cars were on the track that hosts the Formula 1 US Grand Prix.
The Ferrari Racing Days are something that every car enthusiast, and especially Ferrari ones, must see at least once in lifetime. The paddock is typically filled with Prancing Horse cars, offering the chance to see up close some of the cars that have made the history of Formula 1, or to take a picture with the current range or even with a classic model.
