Now We Know Why The World's Only Street Legal Ferrari FXX Is Covered In Tape

Video

It still sounds like absolute bliss.

We showed you this very same Ferrari FXX at a V-Max Stealth event last month. Aside from being the insane awesomeness that is the Ferrari FXX, it also looked kind of, well, weird. It was covered in tape. We'll get back to that in a moment. The FXX is powered by a 6.3-liter V12 with a total of 809 hp. Typically, owners (such as one-time owner Michael Schumacher) don’t even keep their FXXs at home. Instead, Ferrari stores them, driven by owners only on approved track days.

Owners also receive professional driving tips and detailed specs about their car’s performance on track. But, as it turns out, one owner managed to convert their FXX to make it road legal. It’s the only one of its kind in the world. So why's it covered in tape? The owner said it's to prevent stone chipping on the gritty runway. Makes sense.
