The introduction of the 550 Maranello in 1996 proved to be a huge hit with Ferrari enthusiasts both old and new alike. Reviving the company’s fabled line of two-seater, front-engined V-12 grand tourers, the 550 Maranello proved that Ferrari was still in touch with its past and willing to push its performance into the 21st century.
Launched in 2002, the uprated 575M would continue to hold the legacy the 550 cemented. The new model featured an enlarged V-12 by 250 cc, which brought a healthy increase in both power and torque, resulting in a top speed of 202 mph. Revised headlights were fitted along with a restyled air intake in the front, as well as a new front spoiler and larger brake discs. Weight distribution was further improved to offer a near-perfect 50/50 balance. Lastly, the interior was modernized with an updated dashboard and trim. Unlike the 550, buyers of the 575 Maranello could choose between Ferrari’s F1-style transmission or a traditional, gated six-speed manual.
This 575M Maranello, showing just under 9,700 miles on the odometer, is a highly attractive example. The Ferrari is finished in a handsome Argento Nürburgring over a two-tone black-and-tan interior. Further, the car sports Scuderia shields along the front fenders, while red brake calipers neatly hide behind the superb three-piece modular wheels. Moving to the high-quality interior, the predominantly tan leather trim is accompanied by Daytona-style seats fitted with black inserts. Finally, the 575M is equipped with the popular six-speed F1 transmission, operated by soft brush cladding paddles, pleasant to the touch.
Furthermore, the Ferrari is accompanied by its owner’s manuals, factory literature, tool kit, emergency tire inflator, and service receipt binder. While the car is sporty in nature, it is perfectly suitable for grand touring of all distances. Most important, the 575M is among Ferrari’s last true analog supercars and therefore would be an excellent addition to any collection.
