Description

UK-supplied in right-hand drive, 17,500 miles, Fiorano handling pack, bespoke fitted luggageTastefully specified in a rare combination of Verde Zeltvig (dark green) with Tan Daytona seatsDetailed history folder. Original book pack, stamped service book, supporting invoices, spare keys, tools and MOTsStunning example of the fast and comfortable 575incorporating the latest F1 technology of the timeIn 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, the 575M Maranello appeared bringing with it a host of healthy updates adding additional potency to an already incredible car. Increasing the displacement of the V-12 by 250 cubic centimetres to 5748 cc, resulted in 508bhp and 434lb/ft of torque, 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and an advertised top speed of 202 mph. The front end was slightly revised with newer headlights, a redesigned air intake and front spoiler, and the weight distribution was improved to 50/50. Two six-speed transmissions were available a conventional manual gearbox and, for the first time on a Ferrari V12, Magneti Marellis semi-automatic (electro-hydraulic manual) F1 gearbox. Further mechanical improvements included bigger brakes and an adaptive suspension set-up (the four independent suspension units are also controlled by the gearbox, to minimise pitch throughout the 200-milliseconds gear shift time). Inside, the interior was modernised and refreshed with an updated dashboard, trim, and steering wheel. Only 158 575M's were delivered to the UK with the F1 gearbox, and 64 with the manual box making a UK- supplied example still rather an exclusive car to own.First registered on 25/07/2002, this 575M Maranello had been very tastefully specified with Verde Zeltvig paintwork (a dark metallic Green) with a Tan leather interior including Daytona seats. The specification also included the F1 paddle-shift gearbox, Fiorano handling package and, pleasingly, a matching set of bespoke 575 fitted luggage. The tool kit is also present with the spare wheel, spare keys, and the Ferrari book pack containing the service booklet stamped to date with the most recent service dated October 2018 at a Ferrari main agent. The history folder contains a wealth of supporting invoices and old MOTs corroborating the 17,500 miles displayed on the odometer.Today this example presents very well, the paintwork retains a deep gloss and the interior shows very little sign of wear, evidently a well-cared for car always stored correctly. The 575M Maranello offers a very useable 'modern-classic' Ferrari GT that is both powerful, elegant and comfortable. Mechanically the 575M has a reputation for excellent reliability when maintained correctly, so you wouldnt hesitate, given the opportunity, to book the tunnel, fill the bespoke luggage, turn the key, and aim for the south of France, enjoying the scenery whilst the locals enjoy the sight and sound of one of Maranellos finest GTs go howling through.
