The Model –Just five years after the release of the very successful 550-Maranello, Ferrari brought out the 575M in 2002. As with its predecessor, it was a grand tourer that was brilliantly executed and ideal for an extended trip with plenty of room for the driver plus passenger and plenty of storage space in the luggage compartment, or if needed on the rear package tray. Beckoning back to Ferrari’s roots the 575M was powered by a twelve-cylinder engine placed up front with drive wheels to the rear, which had been inherited from the 550M. For the 575M, vehicle dynamics were refined with every detail on the underbody dedicated to down-force, and for the first time, the F1 style paddle shifting for the six-speed automatic. Redesigned air-intakes up front contributed to better fluid-dynamic effectiveness including a new front spoiler, all helping to keep the 575M glued to the ground at high speed. Little things such as the Xenon headlights being standard equipment. When test as a new car, 0-to-60 times were in the 4.3 second range, and passenger comfort was paramount in the design with ease of entry and exit. One of the 575M’s high points is the excellent air-conditioning system which can keep even the hottest drivers cool, calm and collected.
The Car – This spectacular example of the 575M-F1 Maranello coupe left the factory in Blu Pozzi and features a stunning leather interior done in red including the headliner, with the dash and door panels accented with black and brushed aluminum trim accents. Reported to be on of a very limited number of 575M’s shipped to the USA in this color and trim combination, it is in immaculate condition showing just over 10,200 original miles. Under the hood and on the chassis, the proper red accents are found in the engine compartment as well as on the unique disc brake calipers. Luxury appointments abound on this well-maintained example. It features functioning air-conditioning with the factory alloy wheels riding on Pirelli P-Zero tires. If the sounds coming from the fabulous engine aren’t melodic enough for you, there is the factory stereo system with six speakers placed for acoustic perfection and both front fenders carry the bright yellow Scuderia Ferrari badges. Recently treated to a full service including water pumps, fluids, belts and PPI inspection. Turn-key, ready to enjoy, ready to become a legend with you at the wheel, this is a rare opportunity for greatness.
