Footnotes

  • 'The Maranello needs no excuses: it is right-minded, a return to traditional values, albeit values and standards that tower high above those set by the Daytona when it shuffled off to extinction a quarter of a century ago.' – Car magazine.

    With the introduction of the 550 Maranello in 1997, Ferrari returned to its tradition of building front-engined V12 sports cars, resurrecting a line that had remained dormant since the demise of the 365GTB/4 'Daytona' in 1974. The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the 550 Maranello's 48-valve, 5.5-litre V12 developed 485bhp at 7,000rpm, some 100-or-so horsepower more than the Daytona's. Ferrari had discovered long ago that providing optimum balance in a front-engined sports car necessitated the use of a rear transaxle, and the Maranello's came with six speeds. The power train was housed in a tubular steel chassis, to which was attached aluminium coachwork, while the all-independent suspension incorporated dual-mode (normal/sports) damping, switch-selectable by the driver, which was complemented by speed-sensitive power-assisted steering.

    Styled by Pininfarina like its illustrious 'Daytona' predecessor, the 550 Maranello was similarly proportioned, adopting the classical combination of long bonnet, small cabin and truncated tail. The body's aerodynamics were developed in the wind tunnel, where hours of testing ensured that the minimum of drag was combined with constant downforce regardless of set up, an important consideration in a 200mph road car. Styling details such as the bonnet air scoop and hot air outlets behind the front wheelarches recalled the great competizione Ferraris of the past, in particular the immortal 250GTO, while the tail incorporated Ferrari's characteristic twin circular lights.

    In 2004, Evo magazine published a 'Greatest Driver's Cars' feature that pitted the 550 Maranello against the Porsche 911 GT3, Honda NSX-R and Pagani Zonda C12S. The Ferrari won. 'As with all great cars, there's no one facet that dominates the experience,' declared the respected British motoring journal. 'Yes, the engine is mighty, but the chassis is its equal. There's never been a supercar that's so exploitable and so rounded in its capabilities.'

    Left-hand drive chassis number '114351' was supplied new in Denmark (as confirmed by Ferrari UK) and later exported to Japan. First registered in the UK in May 2016, the Maranello was fully serviced and checked by Stratstone Ferrari, Manchester in June 2016, including a change of cam belts, etc. Details of previous services are on file.

    The car currently displays a total of circa 27,500 kilometres (approximately 17,000 miles) on the odometer and is described by the vendor as in generally good/excellent condition, with the interior's original plastic wrapping still intact. This highly desirable Ferrari Gran Turismo comes complete with its original tool kit, instruction manuals, and leather-bound Ferrari wallet, while accompanying paperwork consists of a factory data sheet, MoT to May 2018, a V5C registration document, and the aforementioned service history.
