Thanks to sites like eBay Motors, cars are trading hands over the internet all the time. But seeing a Ferrari FXX for sale online is a considerably rarer sight. The FXX, for those unacquainted, is the super-Enzo that Ferrari rolled out as a dynamic test bed for developing new components for use in future supercars. Only 30 were made, each sold to hand-picked clients from among the company's best customers for the $2 million privilege of being a client test driver for Maranello.

The owner in Yokohama, Japan, evidently opted not to re-ante for the FXX Evoluzione program, and is selling his FXX online in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The 15-day auction, being conducted by our reader Japarabia who tipped us off to the sale, is holding at 14 million UAE Dirhams (about $3.8 million) with less than a day to go.

(As a special bonus, we've got a five-minute in-cabin video of an FXX lapping Silverstone that's pure aural euphoria for exhaust-note junkies after the jump, courtesy of our friends at Winding Road.)

        not trolling but aren't the shift times in those new dual clutch setups faster than even the FXX?

        I'm not saying it's better or anything, just that I've heard the 'fast' Enzo shift times were bested by these new dual setups from VW etc.

        F1 cars don't use twin-clutches, they're banned. The Ferrari system shifts in ~60ms, compared to 8ms in the Volkswagen system.

        Did someone on the internet just admit that they don't know everything? This is the end of the world.

        No...no it's not a dual clutch system in the Ferrari. It's an automated manual gearbox with one clutch.

        You're right, and I feel like a complete ass now. Sorry!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh man....listen to how fast those shifts are.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Who do you think started using those "new double clutch systems" first? It's one of those things that came down from F1. So, no, the "new double clutch systems" don't best the FXX double clutch system, because it's also a double clutch system.

      Love the vid of manuma. I was watching the fxx's go round that day from the stands and my word they sounded insane. I wonder if the auction house do layaway....

      I went to the Palm Beach Supercar show on Saturday and they had an FXX there. They also had that specially designed Ferrari P4 done for some Sultan that had a totally different canopy. http://www.supercars.net/cars/3456.html

      There were also 2 Bugatti's, 5 MB SLR, 4 Ferrari Enzos, 5 Porche Carrera GTs, a Jaguar XJ220, dozens of 360s and 430s, a Spyker display, dozens of Gallardos and a few Murcielago, several Aston Martins, Jaguars, Porche Turbos, a 1991 Callaway TT Vette and probably 50 other awesome cars.

      Then, after we saw that we drove over to the Breakers where the Cavallion Classic was going on. Roughly 200 Ferraris from all years on display in the show or parked in the Valet lot.

      I've got a ton of pics.......it's like porn for car guys!!!

        If by sultan, you mean New Yorker James Glickenhaus, then yes.


        If you search around Ultimatecarpage.com, you'll read about the whole build process.

        No, I'm not name dropping, he actually does have an account under the name Napolis.
