THE FERRARI 550

'The 550 Barchetta Pininfarina was designed to recall the glories of successful road racers of the past, such as the 166MM, and thoroughbred front-engined 12-cylinder Ferrari roadsters of the caliber of the 250GT California and 365GTS/4 Daytona. Ferrari has always created very special runs of cars, and the 550 Barchetta Pininfarina was developed with the aim of being a unique Ferrari - one that deliberately seeks to be more provocative and less rational than the rest of the range.' - Ferrari.

The long association between Ferrari and Pininfarina has been responsible for the creation of some of the most sublime fusions of art and automotive technology, and to mark the world renowned Carrozzeria's 70th Anniversary in 2000, Ferrari supremo Luca di Montezemolo invited Sergio Pininfarina to submit designs for a front-engined roadster embodying the spirit of past Maranello classics. Choosing the 550 Maranello coupé as the basis, the maestro proposed a return to the traditional barchetta style. In Ferrari's own words: 'Functional and unadorned with a simple manual soft-top, the barchetta-style solution has enabled Ferrari's engineers to offset the additional weight gained by reinforcing the chassis and fitting rear roll bars. Consequently the 550 Barchetta Pininfarina weighs no more than the 500 Maranello.'

The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the Barchetta Pininfarina's 48-valve, 5.5-liter V12 is the same as that of the 550 Maranello. All main engine castings of this state-of-the-art power unit are in light alloy, the aluminum wet liners are Nikasil coated and the connecting rods are titanium alloy. The design of the inlet and exhaust systems is derived directly from that of Ferrari's Formula 1 engines, providing the optimum balance between volumetric and combustion efficiency. Variable intake geometry helps increase both torque and maximum power as its manufacturer explains: 'Ferrari's patented system incorporates a third plenum in the intake manifold which varies the fluid dynamic characteristics. Air is taken in via 12 electro-pneumatic throttle valves which are governed by the engine's CPU. This control ensures optimum performance at all engine speeds, guaranteeing excellent torque delivery throughout the rev range.' One expects nothing less from Ferrari.

Standard equipment included electric windows and door mirrors, air conditioning, remote alarm and central locking, and split-rim alloy wheels. The production run was limited to 448 cars, each individually numbered and carrying a plaque inside with its own serial number and Sergio Pininfarina's signature. The result was an instant classic, with production reserved for a handful of faithful Ferraristi.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Barchetta, number 169 of the 448 built, was delivered new in October of 2001. It is one of only 127 examples that were sold new to the United States and was handsomely outfitted from the factory. This Barchetta, finished in Giallo Modena, is among the very few fitted with the Fiorano Handling Pack (FHP), which is highly prized by collectors, along with specially ordered two-tone Giallo/Charcoal racing seats with yellow stitching, Charcoal alcantara instrument cluster trim, and carbon fiber center console trim.

Remaining with its first owner until the Spring of 2004, s/n 24147 came into the collection of its second keeper in September of 2004 with 2,351 miles on the clock. The car would remain in this collection for the next 12 years before entering the present owner's garage in the spring of 2016. Carefully maintained throughout its life, it had a complete service, including timing belts, alignment, and new tires, done by Competitzione & Sports Cars—Ferrari Specialist of Gaithersburg, Maryland in 2012 when 8,252 miles were on the car. More recently in the summer of 2016, thorough inspection of the car was completed that included an oil change, brake service (including fluid change and pad replacement), replacing the rear trunk struts, putting on a new shift knob and replacing or refinishing the sticky interior trim—a common problem in Ferraris of this era that has been since corrected in this example.

Showing under 10,000 miles from new, this uniquely trimmed and well optioned 550 Barchetta replete with a clean CARFAX and all its original books, tools, top, keys, and security clicker fobs. An aftermarket exhaust system is currently fitted, but the original exhaust is included as well. Rare colors, loads of desirable options, and carefully maintained—it is ready to head to its next, eager owner.
