Want to become a Ferrari test driver? Now you can, if you have E1.5 million to spare.
That's the price the Italian sports car maker is asking for its new FXX supercar, a high-performance version of the limited-edition Ferrari Enzo.
Don't expect to show up at a Ferrari showroom and ask for a test drive. The first of 20 FXX two-seat coupes will be delivered by the end of the year "after a careful client selection process," Ferrari says.
Buyers of the 6.2-liter, 800hp FXX will become test drivers in track events that Ferrari will organize over the next two years. The company's technicians will monitor clients' driving experiences to gather data for future models.
You won't be able to show off the car to your neighbors as the FXX is not homologated for road use. That means it can be driven on a racetrack only.
But you could find yourself driving alongside Michael Schumacher or other Team Ferrari members.
And since Bridgestone makes the FXX's 19-inch tires, there shouldn't be any safety concerns similar to those that marred the US Grand Prix earlier this month.
