"The Maranello needs no excuses: it is right-minded, a return to traditional values, albeit values and standards that tower high above those set by the Daytona when it shuffled off to extinction a quarter of a century ago." – Car magazine.
With the introduction of the 550 Maranello in 1997, Ferrari returned to its tradition of building front-engined V12 sports cars, resurrecting a line that had remained dormant since the demise of the 365GTB/4 'Daytona' in 1974. The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the 550 Maranello's 48-valve, 5.5-litre V12 developed 485 bhp at 7.000rpm, some 100-or-so horsepower more than the Daytona's. Ferrari had discovered long ago that providing optimum balance in a front-engined sports car necessitated the use of a rear transaxle, and the Maranello's came with six speeds. The power train was housed in a tubular steel chassis, to which was attached aluminium coachwork, while the all-independent suspension incorporated dual-mode (normal/sports) damping, switch-selectable by the driver, which was complemented by speed-sensitive power-assisted steering.
Styled by Pininfarina like its illustrious 'Daytona' predecessor, the 550 Maranello was similarly proportioned, adopting the classical combination of long bonnet, small cabin and truncated tail. The body's aerodynamics were developed in the wind tunnel, where hours of testing ensured that the minimum of drag was combined with constant downforce regardless of set up, an important consideration in a 200 mph road car. Styling details such as the bonnet air scoop and hot air outlets behind the front wheelarches recalled the great competizione Ferraris of the past, in particular the immortal 250 GTO, while the tail incorporated Ferrari's characteristic twin circular lights. Interior highlights included perforated aluminium pedals, a polished aluminium gear lever, embossed shields to the headrests, and Daytona-style leather trim.
Ferrari built 3.083 550 Maranellos from 1996 through 2001.
Built to European specification, this Ferrari 550 Maranello has the non-catalyst version of the naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 485 bhp. This example is in remarkably well-preserved condition, both inside and out, having covered only 6.400 kms from new. As one would expect, the beige leather upholstery and light brown mats are in fresh condition, while the Rosso Corsa paintwork has no noticeable flaws. Rare and desirable options include 'Prancing Horse' shields to the front wings, five-spoke wheels, red brake callipers, and a half roll-cage trimmed in beige leather, matching the rest of the interior.
Rare in having seen such limited use, this generously equipped example of one of the most exciting driver's cars of its era comes complete with its Schedoni leather folder containing all books and instruction manuals.
The car has been recently checked in Ferrari, the report says the car was repainted and the front bumper was changed in the past, but the mileage was confirmed from the service records in the Ferrari system. The car will be transfered to France for minor repairs needed from the Ferrari report:
1) replacing the engine intake gasket
2) repair of power steering oil leak
3) repair of a malfunctioning airbag
