Ferrari introduced the 575M Maranello as a replacement for the 550 at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show. The features that made the 575 Maranello unique were all referred to in its name. The 575 indicated the fact that it’s effective displacement had been boosted from 5500 to 5750 cc which resulted in a subsequent increase in power and torque. In line with traditional Ferrari terminology, the M stood for “modified,” meaning that all round performance had been boosted. Apart from the work done on the engine, this was also the very first time that an F1-style gearbox had been used on road-going Ferrari V12 too. It was decided not to modify the beautifully sober and balanced styling of the 550 which had earned it instant classic status and which was actually perfectly in tune with Ferrari’s return to the high performance front-engined berlinetta scene.
The car we have on offer was first registered in 2002 and presented in grigio titanio with bordeaux leather interior and has only covered 6,311 miles by its 3 owners. This car is a stunning example and comes with the desirable `Fiorano` handling pack along with satellite navigation, scuderia shields high power Hifi with subwoofer and its original un-used UK battery charger. The car comes with its original complete toolkit and book pack in its original leather wallet along with a history file of invoices.
This is a great opportunity to purchase possibly one of the lowest mileage 575 Maranello's on the market today, a car that is a truly magnificent drive and an iconic looking Ferrari.
