Firmly placed in Ferrari's history as one of their finest big GTs, the 550 Maranello's combination of its stylish Pininfarina lines and front-mounted 12-cylinder engine meant this car had the potential to become an instant classic, following in the footsteps of its forebear, the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. With modern styling cues, a 5.5-litre V12 engine producing around 485bhp and a reported top speed of 199mph, the 550 Maranello was a serious motor car. A less frenetic power delivery, the six-speed manual box and excellent weight distribution were all factors in the 550 becoming the perfect Grand Tourer.
Offered here is a 1998, left-hand drive, Ferrari 550 Maranello supplied new in Rosso with beige interior. We understand that it has been subject to a full restoration at some stage and now showing a, believed genuine, 30,000km on the odometer, this front-engined V12 manual Ferrari is the ultimate Grand Tourer.
