Timeless Classic - Ferrari's Refined, front-engined V12 Gran Tourer
Like the cars that made Ferrari famous in the 1950s and 1960s, the 550 Maranello is a GT meant for high-speed, cross-country travel, with all of the essential Ferrari pieces present and accounted for. Its style comes from Pininfarina; Scaglietti built the all-aluminum bodywork, and the 5.5-liter DOHC V-12 under the hood produces 479hp. The rear-mounted transaxle helps balance out this 3,726-pound car, and the six-speed manual features a classic gated shifter with a polished metal lever and knob. Conceived to be a classic from the start, Ferrari's discerning customers demanded not just out and out performance, but also drivability, luxury, and comfort.
A Turn-Key Example Ready to Drive and Enjoy!
Chassis number 108955 offered here, was completed in April 1997, wearing a very Daytona-esque livery of Giallo Modena over Black leather upholstery. The Ferrari was purchased new here in Houston, Texas before eventually taking residency in California and New Mexico, with just 2-owners from new. Luxuries include a full leather cabin, air conditioning, electric seats, windows and mirrors, matching drilled pedals, a beautifully designed dash, and Speedline Modular wheels. Displaying only 9,800 original miles, the 550 remains very original throughout, including upholstery, trim, glass and body paint (see depth chart). Both Carfax and Auto Check report a clean history and consistent mileage tracking.
The Maranello's most recent “Major Service” was commissioned in late summer 2016, comprising a complete timing belt service with new gaskets, seals and water pump rebuild, fuel system overhaul with new pumps/caps/lines, battery, alternator, fluids, filters, plugs and air conditioning recharge. It's accompanied by owner's manual, Ferrari floor mats, color matched protective front bra and mirror covers, along with leather bound tool case, tire inflator and emergency light.
Ferrari's 550M as the reborn Daytona, surely ranks among the upper echelon of modern Gran Tourers. With its low mileage, fresh service and unmistakably beautiful ensemble, enthusiasts and astute collectors alike are encouraged to take a closer look at this example. Now available for Worldwide purchase and delivery.
