Description

Introducing the Ferrari 550 Maranello: A Modern-Day Classic.

Step into automotive history with the Ferrari 550 Maranello, hailed as the modern-day Daytona. Unveiled at the iconic Nürburgring in 1996, this masterpiece marked the culmination of over two decades of Ferrari's legendary flat-12 mid-engined lineage. With a vision to create a more livable and drivable Ferrari, President Luca di Montezemolo sought to balance performance with comfort, departing from the often exhilarating yet demanding experience of mid-mounted Ferraris.

Under the bonnet, the Ferrari 550 Maranello boasts a formidable 5. 5-liter V12 engine, delivering a thrilling 485 horsepower. Paired with a manual 6-speed gearbox, it offers an unparalleled driving experience, blending power and precision in perfect harmony. Designed as a "softer" kind of GT, it gracefully inherits the legacy of its predecessor, the F512M, while carving its path as a true icon of its era.

Despite its refined demeanor, the Ferrari 550 Maranello proved its mettle on the track, with private teams utilizing it for GT and endurance racing, including prestigious events like the FIA GT and the 24-hour Le Mans. Prodrive also lent its expertise, further enhancing the car's performance capabilities.

Of the 3, 000 units produced, only 457 right-hand drive examples made their way to the UK, making this Ferrari 550 Maranello a rare find indeed.

We are thrilled to present this exceptional 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello, originally sold and supplied by Ferrari Edinburgh. Adorned in the exquisite Argento Nurburgring exterior, complemented by a luxurious Blue Leather interior and Blue Carpets, this example exudes timeless elegance and sophistication. Impeccably maintained with exceptional provenance and extensive history, it stands as a testament to Ferrari's enduring legacy and unparalleled craftsmanship.
