http://digg.com/offbeat_news/Schumacher_to_present_the_new_Ferrari_FXX_Evoluzione_this_weekendReports are circulating in the Italian motoring press that Ferrari is preparing to show a significantly reworked FXX Evoluzione. The development car is reportedly being unveiled by none other than Michael Schumacher next weekend at the company's Mugello circuit in Italy in conjunction with the final stage of the Ferrari Challenge series. Also taking to the track will be an anticipated 34 retired F1 cars of various eras from the company's F1 Clienti program as well as the FXX program.

The FXX itself is, of course, an evolution of the Enzo supercar, which gives selected clients a chance to participate in the testing and development of new features and components for Ferrari road cars. It's essentially a rolling test bed, with new parts being tacked on all the time. The FXX Evoluzione, then, must be a significant step forward to warrant the new nomenclature, and sources suggest it will benefit from new aerodynamic elements, a new traction control system using applied experience from F1, and a power hike to 850 HP. Like the incremental modifications the FXX has undertaken to date as part of the ongoing program, the Evoluzione package is expected to be retrofitted to the existing cars.

      I'd be pretty pissed if I bought an original FXX.

      Oh wait, I'd be a billionaire. Nevermind.

      Wait, they're just now unveiling this car? I thought it had been already? Sexy car but far from necessary...

      I'll go pick up the everyday driver F430 Scuderia, if you want to call it an everyday track car.

        It's basically a test bed, it's already been released and this is an addition to it.

        Basically you get to pay however many millions it cost to have it sit in Ferrari's garage and get tested with new equipment. I wish I had enough money to buy a Ferrari and leave it in Italy.
