$100,000 - $125,000
Introduced by Ferrari in 2002, the 575 Maranello was a much-improved version of its 550 predecessor, which itself, a classic front-engine/rear-wheel-drive grand tourer, has often been described as the modern Daytona. Upgrades included a renewed interior, bigger brakes, a larger and more powerful engine, improved aerodynamics, an adaptive suspension, and the efficient Magneti Marelli paddle-shift F1 transmission. With a stout 515 hp on tap, the 575 Maranello F1 sprints from zero to 60 mph in only 4.2 seconds, 150 mph in 22 seconds, and is capable of a top speed of 202 mph. Famous French journalist Paul Frère first drove the 575 Maranello on 1 July 2002 and admired the performance, the paddle-shift F1 gearbox, the all-alloy body panels, the driving position, and the car’s astounding agility on Ferrari’s Fiorano test circuit.
This Maranello is in superb condition and features carbon-fiber cabin trim, an updated Alpine audio and navigation system, silver brake calipers, Scuderia fender shields, and a sumptuous two-tone tan leather interior. Sold new by Ferrari of Orange County in Costa Mesa to California resident John Statts in 2002, this 575 F1 Maranello was also serviced by the same dealership from 2002-2006. Statts later moved to Georgia, taking the car with him where maintenance work was continued by Ferrari of Atlanta. According to invoices on file, a full engine service was completed at 10,045 miles in 2007, including new timing chest gears, pulley, four bearings, and timing belts, as well as a water pump rebuild. Sometime thereafter, the gorgeous and rare, Rosso Barchetta Maranello was sold to the Robert Ianucci Collection. The current owner recently had Ferrari Fort Lauderdale complete an engine-out service in May 2020, ensuring the car is ready for its next owner.
One of the most attractive Ferraris ever designed, this 575M is a fully serviced, low-mileage example and unquestionably the most stylish ride for dinner in the city or a weekend drive to the shore.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0120.
