The Ferrari 550 Maranello was Ferrari’s answer to those who wanted a front-engine V12 model that outperformed the mid-engine sports cars. The front-engine models were also far more practical than the mid-engine styled sports cars with larger trunks which had the ability to fit golf clubs in the rear. Suspension and traction control technological advances during this period resulted in the 550’s ability to achieve handling that rivaled the mid-engine models. Another advance for this vehicle was covered headlight units that gave the car a homogenous line whether the lights were on or off. Power is derived from a 5.5L V12 paired to a manual 6-speed transmission putting out 485HP. This example is finished in a beautiful Azurro metallic with a cream-colored leather interior and blue piping.
This particular example was been part of a predominant Orange County collection and this matching numbers car features the 6-speed manual transmission. According to the manufacturer the 550 Maranello had a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph), and could accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds. The beautiful Azurro exterior and Crema interior make the perfect combination. It was acquired after a shipping incident that ended up in a salvage title. The previous owner made the repairs to the top and right rear and it looks and drive as any 550 should. Although the previous owner completed a major service less than 1,000 miles ago prior to the new owner pick up we will have our Ferrari shop go through and make sure all items are up to date.
If you are looking for a beautiful 550 that can be driven and for a fraction of the current 550 pricing this might be the car to look at.
Please note that the car had sold in a prior auction but the buyer could not finance because of the title so if you are bidding please be prepared to finalize without financing. Thank you and good luck.
