    Competition is good! Come on P1 and 918! - Having said that this is the XX version by all accounts so...

    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    Keep wonder why they always run the XX version at the ring, is it because it's the only way they can post a faster time?

    Is the XX street legal? If not, the time is irrelevant.

    Agreed, I'm sure the "special Pirelli tires" are really "special Pirelli slicks"...

    All XX are non road legal. They are specialized track version, in other words, tuned track car. 

    But at least Ferrari reclaimed the non legal car lap time title from Zonda R, who was ahead of the 599XX

     

     


    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    I love it, the "non-legal" lap record....reminds me of Lance Armstrong and the Tour de France.


    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    Its a great strategy come on guys. You get the regular LaF for the road and then the XX for the track - perfect! blush

    If it's a race car, who cares? Isn't there a BMW Z4 race car that does a time close to that with way less power and no hybrid drivetrain?


    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    yep, XX times are completely irrelevant to the automotive world. Looks nice though broken heart

    There's no indication that this is an XX. Just speculation.

    That is indeed a no cost option for the "regular" LaFerrari. This car has no different aero appendages, wears road legal tyres, makes exactly the same sound as every other LaFerrari and last but not least, has license plates!!! Ergo, it is NOT an XX version.

    That's a paper license plate... It looks to be printed on two pieces of paper and stapled together!

    Obviously it is a provisional plate, showing the car's registration number. You don't just print random letters and numbers on a piece of cardboard and roam the roads!!! Keep in mind that this is a factory car and de Simone is behind the wheel on a german public road. It is self evident that it is road legal.

    There are possibilities to use a not road legal car (not TÜV approved) on public streets in Germany (rotes Kennzeichen / red number plates). Suppliers or manufacturer can use those plates for testing. A friend uses this way to use his old BMW racecar once or twice a year for a little Sunday morning ride (even crossing the border to Austria).

    I don’t know if this selfmade number plate is the Italian version of our “rotes Kennzeichen”.Smiley

    Those plates are not allowed at the Nürburgring on public days.

    That is the Italian "Targa Prova" , temporary number plate which allows manufacturers and/or dealers to drive the cars without registering them. I wonder whether it is valid out of Italy since theoretically  you should not drive more than 100 km out of the province where the plate has been released.


    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    Anyway, since the XX versions are not road legal, this car is clearly not an XX model. You can also hear its sound on the videos below. It makes the same sound as any other LaFerrari.

    And, as you can see from the part I've circled in red, this LF has the optional tow package installed, so it's certainly street legal if they are going to be hauling a trailer with it.

    .....is the trailer for spare parts???

    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    I don't think it's an XX either. Looks like a "normal" LaFerrari to me too.

     


    Re: LaFerrari XX did Nordschleife in 6:35

    I agree... This doesn't look any different from a normal LaFerrari. XX Ferraris are more extreme.

    Sport Auto magazine is stating that this has been the XX version on the Ring (articel in German only)
