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 minimize 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 Ferrari 575 with the optional F1 gearbox is in stunning condition offered in Rosso Corsa Red with contrasting biscuit hide. Originally supplied to Malaysia this example has been bought to the UK with just one previous owner and upon arrival was inspected to be in the highest order. £14,000 was spent on the car with HR Owen Ferrari, which included full annual service, new cam and auxiliary belts, new cam cover gaskets, coils and spark plugs, injector seals and a banjo bolt, this was combined with all new fluids. We are informed underneath the car is completely corrosion free, much thanks to the Malaysian climate and incredibly low mileage. Benefitting from a Capristo exhaust system which compliments the 575 fantastically this extremely low mileage example is also offered, importantly, with the desirable Fiorano Handling Pack. The car is described by the vendor as being in fabulous condition bodily, mechanically and electrically, it has the original toolkit and has recently been treated to new front and rear brake discs and new Pirelli tyres all round – ready to enjoy!
This is a very well-priced, striking example of Ferrari's highly accomplished 575M F1 with Fiorano Handling Pack in excellent condition.
