The Ferrari 575M Maranello is a two-seat, two door, grand tourer which was launched in 2002 and 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.
Originally registered by Testarossa Cars in Madrid, this lefthand drive Ferrari 575 is now UK registered and had a service including cambelts by Joe Macari on 6th February 2018 at 27,308km. Presenting in great condition throughout, the car is finished in the traditional colour combination of Rosso Corsa with tan interior. It comes supplied with the original service books together with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate plus a collection of invoices. This is a very well-priced, striking example from Ferrari's highly accomplished sports car stable.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
