When Luca di Montezemolo took office in 1991, a two-seat, front-engined V-12 coupe had been absent from the companys’ line-up since the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The decision was made to revive the format as a replacement for Ferraris mid-engine, flat-12 models. After 30 months of development, the Ferrari 550 Maranello was presented in July 1996 at the Nürburgring circuit in Germany. Pininfarina designed both the exterior and interior. The result was an improvement over the outgoing F512 M, as it boasted superior performance, a larger and more comfortable interior and a boot that could easily hold enough luggage to make it a grand tourer.
The car used a transaxle layout, with the 6-speed manual gearbox located at the back, in-line with the driven wheels. The model number refers to total engine displacement (5.5 litres) and the model name Maranello refers to the town where the Ferrari headquarters are located.
The engine is a 5.5 litre V12 with 4 valves per cylinder with dual overhead cams and variable length intake manifold. It produces 485 BHP at 7000 RPM and torque is 568.1 Nm at 5000 RPM. The body is an all aluminium construction to keep the weight down. The 550 Maranello can accelerate to 100 kp/h in an impressive 4.2 seconds, with a max top speed of 320 kilometers per hour (199mph).
The 5.5 L V12 engine won the ‘over 4 litre’ class of the International Engine of the Year award for 2000 and 2001.
EVO magazine awarded the Ferrari 550 Maranello the award ‘Best Sportscar of the 1990’s’.
In total Ferrari produced only 3083 cars.
A 2000, LHD car with just 3 owners and specified in the stunning and desirable special order colour with nero hide interior make this a special car. Accompanying the car is a complete set of owners hand books, including the service book, all stamped from Ferrari main dealer and Ferrari specialists, kept in the original leather wallet. New wheels and brand new tyres and an aftermarket sports exhaust system are fitted.
At 37,000 km in 2017 it had a major service at QV in Egham including cam belt service and engine mounts. It now has 38,028 km and has just been serviced.
I can ship it to you if that is required.
