If the 1980s is remembered as the era that Ferrari would unveil some of the most famous mid-engined supercars to wear the Prancing Horse badge, the following decade would herald the revival and reinvention of its front-engine platform. The renaissance began in 1992, as the much-anticipated, four-seat 456 arrived to fill the void left by the 412—but the most exciting development was yet to come. Unveiled at an event at the Nürburgring circuit in July 1996, the 550 Maranello was presented as the company’s first V-12 powered two-seater with a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout since the lauded 365 GTB/4 "Daytona," which had bowed out 23 years earlier.
Introduced by Ferrari in 2002, the 575 Maranello was a much-improved version of its 550 predecessor, which itself, aa a classic front-engine/rear-wheel-drive grand tourer, has often been described as the modern Daytona. Upgrades included a renewed interior, bigger brakes, a larger and more powerful engine, improved aerodynamics, an adaptive suspension, and the efficient Magneti Marelli paddle-shift F1 transmission. With a stout 515 hp on tap, the 575 Maranello F1 sprints from zero to 60 mph in only 4.2 seconds, 150 mph in 22 seconds, and is capable of a top speed of 202 mph. Famous French journalist Paul Frère first drove the 575 Maranello on 1 July 2002 and admired the performance, the paddle-shift F1 gearbox, the all-alloy body panels, the driving position, and the car’s astounding agility on Ferrari’s Fiorano test circuit.
This beautiful 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello is finished in the attractive combination of Grigio Titanio over a Rosso interior and features the highly desirable six-speed gated manual transmission. Linked to a howling V-12 engine, this combination makes for an unforgettable driving experience.
First registered in the state of Massachusetts, the Ferrari has traveled just 17,469 miles in the past 20 years as shown on the odometer at the time of cataloging. Importantly, a series of invoices from the past six years account maintenance performed on the car. In 2017 a major service replaced the belts, filters, and fluids in addition to fitting new intake and valve cover gaskets. In 2022 Ferrari Scottsdale performed a service and the car received a new camshaft belt, drive belt, and the fluids were flushed and replaced. Lastly, the common “sticky dashboard switchgear” issue was also remedied.
One of the most attractive Ferraris of the modern era, this 575M Maranello distinguishes itself as a superb example with an attractive color combination and a highly sought-after manual transmission.
