During 1996 Ferrari launched their new flagship, the 550 Maranello the last Ferrari built exclusively with a manual gearbox. The heart and soul of a Ferrari starts with its engine, and the 550 Maranello’s 5.5 litre V12 engine produces 485bhp at 7000rpm, allowing this comfortable and elegant Grand Tourer to hit 60mph in 4.1 seconds and onto a top speed of 199mph. Ferrari discovered that a better balance could be achieved on their front engine cars through the use of a rear transaxle to deliver power through to the rear wheels. The driving experience is complemented by all-independent suspension incorporating dual-mode (normal/sport) damping and speed sensitive power-assisted steering.

The 550 was first introduced at the Nurburgring racing circuit in Germany during 1996, and was produced alongside cars such as the F355 and F50. The model name referred to the 5.5-litres total engine displacement and to the town of Maranello, being the home to Ferrari’s HQ and factory. The interior and exterior designs were both executed by Pininfarina. In 2002 the 550 was replaced by the 575M Maranello, not an all new model but a modified version with an improved 5.75L engine and generally F1 semi-automatic transmission as opposed to a traditional manual that in recent years seems to be the choice of the purist and collector.

Between 1996 and 2001 Ferrari produced 3,083 550 Maranello's, of which just 457 were UK Right Hand Drive examples. The car offered here is one of these rare UK models that was imported new to the UK and first registered on 5th June 2000 with Graypaul, Loughborough. In 2016 the current owner took the car to Meridien Modena giving them ‘carte blanche’ to go through the car and rectify anything that was needed. This incuded a full cambelt service, new shock absorbers and many other items that are detailed on the invoice that came to just over £13,000!

This example comes with a service history book, Owners Manual, Alarm and Hifi System Manuals, Ferrari Direct Line Services, Sales and Service Organisation Manual, V5C registration document, Original Tool Kit and Ferrari Puncture Canister.
