FXX-K Ferrari kinetic-hybrid runs 1036bhp - track-only

Ferrari's research and development program vehicle FXX-K was made based on the company's first hybrid, and it's being shown off this week as a "completely uncompromising" design. They suggest that this vehicle is "unfettered by homologation requirements and regulations" as it will never be used in competition. Because of this, a super-exclusive group of "Client-Test-Driver" will be working in a special test program over the next couple of years. And it'll come in red, of course, with bright stripes and the number 10 across its sides, so you know it's a beast.

This is the Ferarri FXX-K. The K stands for KERS kinetic energy recovery, a system "used to maximize performance on the track." At the bottom of this article, you'll see a short video presented by Ferrari on HY-KERS, the precursor to this FXX-K's system.
