Foreword by Amedeo Felisa, The book is written by Ferrari enthusiast Philip Bachman. It tells a detailed history of the FXX.

The book also gives the author's inside view of the exciting FXX Programme.

The FXX was introduced in 2005 as a track-only version of the popular Enzo. The FXX featured even more impressive performance than the Enzo. Just as importantly, the official FXX track events demonstrated Ferrari's initiative to draw customers close to the factory's R&D.

The book is an important addition to any Ferrari enthusiast's library because it is the most complete publication about the FXX. The book is a 2013 Independent Publisher Book Award recipient. The FXX holds a commanding position among modern sports cars. It is known as one of the world's most advanced, exclusive track-only supercars. As the result of Ferrari's continued development of the popular Enzo, the FXX's looks are enticing, and its performance is astonishing. Yet there is more to the story. The FXX was not merely built and sold. It was built, sold, and promoted through the Ferrari's Corse Clienti department.

The FXX Programme offered FXX owners the opportunity to draw close to Ferrari in a unique series of factory-organized track events. The events gained Ferrari valuable test data while cultivating a special lifestyle for participants. Ferrari FXX Inside Out depicts the passion behind the car and its track activities.

The book describes the history of the FXX, including design and development. The author also recounts an insider's perspective of the FXX Programme. Thus, half of the book's content discusses the FXX as a model, while the other half covers the history of the track activities.

The book is written and published by Philip Bachman, an active participant in the FXX Programme from 2006-2011. He serves as a Senior Judge for the Ferrari Club of America's concours d'elegance. Philip shares his memories of the FXX Programme in the book. He also describes the lifestyle surrounding the cars. Although not an official Ferrari publication, much of the book's content has been graciously contributed by Corse Clienti, the department of Ferrari behind the FXX Programme. The book is a collector-quality laminated hardcover.

The cover, text, and pictures are printed using full color processing. A multitude of images are included in the book, ranging from documentary photos to action shots. The book is printed and bound in the United States.
