2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta Pininfarina

  • Chassis no. ZFFZR52B000124202
  • Serial no. 224/448
  • Engine no. 62500


  • Less than 3,800 kilometres from new
  • Belt service by Joe Macari in 2015
  • Ferrari Classiche certified


The 224th of just 448 examples built, this Rosso Corsa over Nero 550 Barchetta Pininfarina was delivered new to Paris and spent the majority of its life in Monaco. Imported to the United Kingdom in 2015, it was recently awarded Ferrari Classiche certification, affirming that it remains today just as it did when it left the factory in 2001. Having travelled less than 3,800 kilometres over the course of its life, it presents accordingly for such low mileage.

Fully serviced by Joe Macari’s official Ferrari and Maserati service facility in London in mid-2015, the 550 Barchetta has only accumulated about 15 miles since then and remains ready to take to the open road. Furthermore, it is worth noting that the car is accompanied by all the proper factory accessories, including a set of books, tool kit, seat covers, and helmets. The car has also been fully certified by Ferrari Classiche as remaining today just as it was when it left the factory.

The spiritual successor to the iconic Daytona Spider, the 550 Barchetta returned the tradition of top-down, twelve-cylinder motoring to Maranello in splendid fashion. Proving not only to be both a modern day collectible and a wonderful car to drive and enjoy, this low-mileage Barchetta is ready for whatever its next owner has in store.





• Meno di 3.800 chilometri da nuova
• Cinghie motore sostituite da Joe Macari nel 2015
• Certificata Ferrari Classiche

La numero 224 dei soli 448 esemplari costruiti, questa 550 Barchetta Pininfarina, in Rosso Corsa su Nero, è stata consegnata nuova a Parigi e ha trascorso la maggior parte della sua vita nel Principato di Monaco. Importata nel Regno Unito nel 2015, ha recentemente ricevuto la sempre ambita certificazione di Ferrari Classiche che, in pratica, sancisce che la vettura rimane oggi esattamente come quando ha lasciato la fabbrica nel 2001. Guidata per meno di 3.800 chilometri nel corso di tutta la sua vita, si presenta di conseguenza con un aspetto assolutamente perfetto, consono ad un chilometraggio così basso.

Completamente tagliandata a metà 2015 dal centro di assistenza di Joe Macari, “service” ufficiale Ferrari e Maserati di Londra, la 550 Barchetta ha percorso solamente circa 15 miglia da allora e rimane pronta ad essere tranquillamente guidata e portata su strada aperta. Vale la pena notare, inoltre, che la macchina è corredata di tutti gli accessori di fabbrica previsti, tra cui la serie dei manuali, set attrezzi, coprisedili, e caschi. La vettura è stata certificata da Ferrari Classiche, attestando così che è rimasta fino ad oggi esattamente come quando ha lasciato la fabbrica.

Successore spirituale della mitica Daytona Spider, la 550 Barchetta ha restituito in modo splendido al mondo la tradizione dell'automobilismo a tetto aperto con un dodici cilindri di Maranello. Avendo gia ampiamente dimostrato di essere non solo un moderno oggetto da collezione ma anche una macchina meravigliosa da guidare e godere, questa Barchetta, con pochissimi chilometri all’attivo, è pronta per qualunque avventura il suo prossimo proprietario abbia in serbo per lei.
