When the Ferrari 550 Maranello debuted in 1996 it was met with jubilation by enthusiasts and the motoring press alike. For the previous two decades Ferraris commitment to the mid-mounted flat-twelve layout remained steadfast yet some fans longed for a return of the V12 engine to its traditional location ahead of the driver. The wish finally came true with the unveiling of the gorgeous 550 Maranello. It was the first two-seat twelve-cylinder Ferrari sports car since the 1973 Daytona to have its engine sitting up front. Tradition aside the 550 was a thoroughly modern sports car under the skin. Its 65-degree V12 had four valves per cylinder and variable-length intake with an output of 478 horsepower. The tubular spaceframe chassis wore beautiful and aerodynamically efficient bodywork and there was all the latest in electronic tech to keep the car pointed straight. Just over 3000 were produced between 1996 and 2002 and the 550 remains a perennial favorite among Tifosias one of the most revered drivers cars of the period and one of the last Ferraris purposely designed with a V12 and manual gearbox combination.It is with pleasure that we offer this outstanding 2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello in the iconic colors of Rosso Corsa over Tan leather. This car has covered just 4375 miles from new and is presented in impeccable order inside and out offered with extensive service records window sticker and factory tools/accessories. Despite the design being more than 20 years old the Pininfarina styling has aged remarkably well displaying a marvelous balance of muscle and grace in the compact proportions and neat detailing. Build quality improved vastly for 550 production as evident in this prime example. The factory Rosso Corsa paint is superb from stem to stern highlighted by unmarked black trim on the sills and bumpers and the aerodynamic underbody panels are excellent.
