In 1996, Ferrari introduced the 550 Maranello in a bid to revive their fabled line of grand tourers, and the 550 quickly proved to be an overwhelming success. Six years later, in 2002, they introduced the 575M Maranello, which debuted a number of updates designed to make an incredible car even more potent. Increasing the displacement of the V-12 by 250 cubic centimeters, to 5,748cc resulted in a healthy increase in power and torque, giving the 575M a top speed of 202 mph. The front end was slightly revised with newer headlights, a modified air intake and front spoiler, and the weight distribution was improved to 50/50. Buyers also had the opportunity to outfit their new car with an F1-style gearbox, which proved to be a very popular option. To help rein in the increased performance, the 575M was also fitted with larger brake discs. Inside, the interior was modernized and refreshed with an updated dashboard, trim, and steering wheel, amongst other minor improvements.
We are delighted to offer this left-hand drive 575M for public sale. Sold new to its first and only private owner in 2005 by Ferrari SPA Torino, this simply stunning V12 beast has remarkably covered just 3,299 kms since leaving Maranello in its striking Rosso Corsa finish with a deep red interior. Our vendor takes enormous pride in his cars and this example is no exception to the rule. 3,000 kms ticked by during the first 18 months of its life and the car was then taken straight to the Ferrari SPA Torino on 7th December 2007 for its first service. After that, this vehicle was stored for the next 8 years, under its original cover, and was then bought out for the next main dealer service in June 2015 when the odometer was reading just 3,295kms. Around 3,500 euros was spent at this particular service and the original service book, along with accompanying photos taken during the service, details the level of love and attention this desirable Ferrari has enjoyed.
This vehicle needs to be seen to be fully appreciated, and you could be forgiven if you thought it left the showroom yesterday. All its original tool kit and literature are present along with the EU registration papers and NOVA. This is truly a very special car and fitted with the F1 transmission, this 575M would be a worthy addition to any collection as a future collectible or thrilling weekend driver. Ferrari V12 motoring at its finest.
