It looks like the day has finally come: one of Ferrari’s ultra-exclusive Corse Clienti XX models is set for public sale by RM Auctions this February in Paris.
Widely believed to be pushing out nearly 800 horsepower through its Enzo-plus V12 engine, all of the typical street weight is stripped out.
A full carbon-fiber aero redesign nearly doubles downforce (and grip) versus the 599 road cars, and weight is a very private figure – assumed to be at least 800 pounds lighter than anything with a license plate.
Type approvals and imports will be tricky, as will emissions in places like California.
Pricing is not yet set, but the initial ticket for the XX program was priced in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
This racing makeover ensured real adrenaline from on-track battles in Corse Clienti races across the world. Imagine a starting grid of 12 or so XX racers, revving their engines for a start.
Behind every visor: a billionaire rival!
A good time, to be sure.
