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 very good Ferrari 575M F1, fitted with the semi-automatic gearbox, was supplied new in 2002 by Cornes Ferrari in Japan and imported to the United Kingdom in May 2017. Finished in Argento Nurburgring (Silver) with contrasting Bordeaux leather interior with Bordeaux carpets. The car is supplied with a very good options list including electric seats, red brake calipers, 19 inch five spoke alloy wheels, a Bordeaux carpet rear shelf, climate control and black dials. It has been very well maintained with a full service history and comes with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate, the original manuals, toolkit and bag. this lovely Ferrari 575M Maranello is a great car to look at and an even better one to drive.
