The instant we read that one of the 30 Ferrari FXXs in the world was going up for sale, we unintentionally stretched the denim of our blue jeans. (And reminded ourselves to buy a Mega Millions ticket.) Can you blame us? Especially considering this example is outfitted with the Evoluzione package, which takes the Enzo-based track car and improves it by reducing drag, cutting the sequential manual transmission’s shift times down to 60 milliseconds and squeezing 850 horsepower (at 9,500 rpm!) out of the naturally aspirated 6.3 liter V12. This on top of the regular FXX’s vast improvements over the already boner-tastic Enzo. That’s right: the FXX Evoluzione is twice improved over the Enzo.
The car headed to auction formerly belonged to Benny Caiola, whose investments in Manhattan real estate gave him the means to afford no less than eight Ferraris at the time of his death last year, all of which are headed to auction on January 21st in Scottsdale, Arizona. (There’ll also be a Maserati MC12 and a Lamborghini Gallardo of Caiola’s up for grabs.) Gooding & Company, the auction house executing the sale, expects the FXX Evoluzione to go for around $2.5 million. If your first thought was, “That’s a ton of money,” watch the video below and see if you still feel the same.
