Google Executive Surprises His Wife With a $2.7M LaFerrari FXX K Hypercar

Getting birthday surprises is the coolest thing ever, and Google executive Benjamin Sloss is very good at making awesome surprises. 

Google exec Benjamin Sloss bought his wife a Ferrari FXX K for her birthday
Mr. Sloss is well into motoring culture. Apparently he owns among other vehicles a McLaren P1, a Ferrari LaFerrari and a bright yellow 599XX, which he bought at a fund rising auction in the wake of the Emilia earthquake disaster in 2012.

Mind you, his “racewife”, Christine, is no different from him when it comes to automobiles and that’s why Sloss arranged for a few laps around Fiorano in their 599XX to celebrate her birthday – or at least that’s what his spouse thought, as Benjamin surprized her with a mesmerizing Ferrari FXX-K.

The FXX-K has a similar livery as their “old” 599XX, and it looks rad. Don’t think for a second that its paint scheme resembles a bumblebee, because the overall “Giallo Modena” is complemented by dark blue accents.

Sporting a combined output of 1015 PS produced by a 6.3-litre V12 and an electric motor, the car is stupendously fast. But, apparently, that isn’t enough to scare the missus, who, according to Ferrari, killed it around the track:
"Christine found the FXX K incredibly communicative, responsive, and confidence inspiring, and extraordinarily fast. After just a few laps she was running 1’20”, with a passenger on board, very close to the Fiorano FXX K lap record!" 
So, it seems there’s a reason why Benjamin Sloss calls her 'racewife'. Anyway, built in only 30 examples and costing around $3 million, the FXX-K is the mother lode of all birthday presents. But now it's time to look at the pictures, watch the short movies and get envious you're not a millionaire.
