EXTERIOR
Finished in a pristine coat of Grigio Alloy, the sculpted body of this mighty V12 GT presents in top order. A particularly strong colour for the halo V12 model, the paintwork is in pristine condition with a vibrant hue that sparkles beautifully after covering so few miles in its seventeen years.

The central hood scoop and two side exit grilles that adorn the flanks to allow heat dissipation are well designed features that nod to the classic V12 Ferrari’s of bygone days.

INTERIOR
The cabin of this 550 is beautifully appointed and has been exceptionally well looked after over the years. Pelle Nera leather covers the majority, beautifully stitched using only the finest hide, offering a luxurious contrast against the carbon backing of the bucket seats.

The interior space is further refined with an assortment of tech and luxury materials; the alcantara instrument surround, subtle chrome features around the air vents, dials and of course the centrepiece gated manual gear stick, carbon topped and further surrounded by carbon with the build plaque and designing signature attached.

The condition of the interior verifies the minimal use of the Barchetta, presenting as immaculately as it did the day it rolled out of the factory.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 5.5L V12 engine is a design masterpiece and was commended with a win in the “Over 4 litre” Class of International Engine of the Year award for both 2000 and 2001.

The mighty naturally aspirated engine is mated to the sublime 6 speed gated manual box which slots into every gear with a satisfying bolt action; there is no doubt that this GT will remain one of the last greats of analogue driving pleasure.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 550 speed line split rims have been thoroughly looked after as such they present in immaculate condition with no marks or scuffs.

Matching Pirelli P-Zero on all four corners show plenty of tread remaining. Brake calipers, discs and pads are all in fine health.

HISTORY FILE
This 550 Barchetta was first registered in Italy by Ferrari Motor Spa Modena in August 2001 where it’s lived the majority of it’s life. In late 2017 it was imported into the UK and sold to its only UK owner where the car has been kept in heated storage ever since.

The car comes with 11 service invoices, the most recent of is from August 2017 by Lancaster Colchester where the cambelts were changed at 885km.

As well as the comprehensive history file the car also come with a pair of extremely rare unused open face Ferrari helmets, the original tool kit, leather hand books and all books, spare keys, alarm fobs and all service invoices. Also present is a complete Ferrari Classiche folder for the vehicle.
