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 has been part of a predominant Orange County collection and this matching numbers car features the6-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.

This modern classic has had a recent service including Tune-Up, replacements of all fluids, new plugs, timing, new battery, oil change, radiator flush, and tire and brake inspection. The car has a salvage title. With only 14K miles this is a true Ferrari daily driver that can be driven casually or taken to the track and provide an incredible driving experience.

Read all of the posts on this beautiful car and it really deserves more love here. This a one of the best Ferrari’s out there for it looks, sounds, and overall reliability. I am a BMW lover but this takes my breath away.

I looked very hard at this car and it is beautiful. We were close to making a deal but I ended up buying something else. I can attest that it looks much better in person than the photos and the seller is very up front on this car. Someone can make a great deal on it and prices are continuing to go up on these.

Yes, if anyone needs to store the car that is not a problem. We also have a preferred relationship with Plycar Shipping if needed. We are getting closer to the reserve so good luck to all of the bidders.

Yes, these are truly one of the best looking older Ferrari’s out there. Not a buyer but keep watching the video and listening to the sound of the 12 cyl motor. BTW, if you have not heard what these sound like with a modified exhaust, check this video out, absolutely insane. https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a32176012/550-maranello-custom-headers-sound/

Ok everyone, let’s try this again. The last buyer went dark on me so I am assuming he will not finalize the deal. Good luck and someone will be getting a very nice “driver” quality example.

Ok folks here is a bit more color on the car. Thanks for someone doing a bit more due diligence they got to the bottom of the history of this car. It was not a electrical issue on the car but a transport incident whereby something fell on the car damaging the top and rear glass. It was totaled by the insurance company and bought in 2002 and repaired by a group in Arizona. It was not driven much from 02-14 and then sold to a collector who has owned it for the past 6 years. Within the past 1000… Read more »

Unfortunately, I have not been able to reach the original owner. The prior owner has confirmed his original statement that it was an electrical issue which resulted in taking the car back and as such the salvage title but I do not have anything that confirms this. As previously said a PPI can be done post auction to confirm the car is as it should be. Nothing to hide here.

enesset, I took this car in trade from the Seller on another car I had. That said, the PO is selling a number of the Ferrari’s on this site and has a full time mechanic that works on his collection which are primarily Ferrari’s or Lamborghini’s. He has been the person that has serviced the car and as such “no receipts”. He has offered himself to speak with buyers directly, if interested. With the overall lack of history on this car I am willing to have someone do a PPI, at their expense, post auction and if the PPI comes… Read more »

The reason the recent invoice is important is simple things like collapsed motor mounts (not uncommon at all) is about a $2k line item.

If this car needs a full service, degreeing of the cams with timing/cam-belt change, water pump, etc that can be $3,500-$5k

etc etc etc

Seller — let me understand correctly.

We can bid and if there are any material mechanicals unearthed from the PPI we can choose to NOT close on the purchase. That’s a major positive.

In the posting it talks about recent service, am I missing seeing a copy of the documents?

I had been reluctant here because I just did a PPI on a 550 and the needs were not major but the “needs” list totaled over $20k.

All, I have had a couple of people look and inspect the car locally but not a PPI. I am also trying to track down one of the prior owners to discuss the title issue. That said, I am prepared to have a post auction PPI done and if there are any mechanical or other issues identified, either repair or terminate and refund deposit. It is a beautiful car that drives amazing so I don’t have any worries.

I know its been several days, but thanks for confirming the red fob. Not having it is not the end of the world but its PITA to get a new red one made from the guys in Wisconsin and I think it’s around $1k.

I love this color combo but given what I learned on another clean 550 recently during a PPI, I am not buying without one.

I’m going to continue watching this one.
