The Ferrari 575M Maranello is a two seat, two door, grand tourer which was launched in 2002, it is essentially an updated 550 Maranello featuring minor styling changes from Pininfarina. The 575M was replaced by the 599 GTB in the first half of 2006. Updates from the 550, included a renewed interior, but with substantial improvements mechanically, including bigger brake discs, a larger and more powerful engine, improved weight distribution, refined aerodynamics and fluid dynamics along with an adaptive suspension set-up (the four independent suspensions are also controlled by the gearbox, to minimise pitch throughout the 200 milliseconds shift time). Two six-speed transmissions were available, a conventional manual gearbox and for the first time on a Ferrari V12, Magneti Marelli's semi-automatic (Electrohydraulic manual) 'F1' gearbox. The 575 model number refers to total engine displacement in litres, whilst the 'M' is an abbreviation of modificato ('modified').
This fabulous example of this desirable and rare model is presented in Verde (dark green metallic) with tan leather interior including the unmarked Daytona seats and matching Ferrari bespoke luggage. This particular car has the expensive and rare Fiorano handling pack which enhances the performance of this 5.7 litre V12 motor car. This wonderful Italian sports grand tourer comes with the semi-automatic F1 gearbox, Ferrari toolkit and matching spare wheel. Its original Ferrari leather wallet contains the usual service book which is fully stamped, with the last stamp being by Meridien Modena Ltd on 21st September 2017 with mileage recorded then at 16,670 miles. As well as two sets of keys, the car also comes with a comprehensive history file containing MoT test certificates dating back to 2007 and invoices from various Ferrari dealerships/specialists. This gleaming and elegant Italian thoroughbred, must surely be one of the finest available today.
