Footnotes

  • 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 365 GTB/4 'Daytona' in 1974. The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the Maranello's 5.5-litre V12 developed 485bhp, some 100-or-so horsepower more than the Daytona's, which was delivered to the road via a six-speed rear transaxle. 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, 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. 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 250 GTO.

    This particular 550 Maranello was delivered new to France via Ferrari concessionaire Charles Pozzi, and first owned by a Mr Christian Snider of Paris. Imported into the UK in 2002, the car benefits from a scheduled service carried out in February 2008 when the cam belts and clutch were changed. Described by the private vendor as in very good condition, it is offered with all books and tools, a history file of receipts, UK V5C registration document, and current MoT.

    Coupé Ferrari 550 Maranello 1998
    Carrossé par Pininfarina
    Châssis n° ZFFZR49B000111707

    •Livré neuf en France
    •Importé au Royaume-Uni en 2002
    •Entretien effectué en février 2018 (courroies de distribution et embrayage remplacés)
    •Muni de ses notices et de son outillage au complet

    Le lancement en 1997 de la 550 Maranello a marqué le retour de Ferrari à l'architecture à V12 avant, traditionnelle pour ses voitures de sport. C'était la résurgence d'une construction demeurée en sommeil depuis la disparition en 1974 de la 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Le cœur de toute Ferrari est son moteur ; le V12 de 5,5 litres de la Maranello développait 485 chevaux, soit environ 100 de plus que celui de la Daytona, qui étaient transmis à la route via une boîte-pont arrière à six rapports. Ce groupe motopropulseur se logeait dans un châssis tubulaire en acier auquel était fixée une carrosserie en aluminium. La suspension à quatre roues indépendantes était équipée d'amortisseurs bi-modes (normal et sport) et l'assistance de direction était asservie à la vitesse.

    Tout comme son illustre devancière la Daytona, la 550 Maranello avait été dessinée par Pininfarina en respectant les mêmes proportions, la classique association d'un capot long, d'un habitacle exigu et d'un arrière tronqué. L'écope sur le capot et les extracteurs d'air chaud à l'arrière des passages de roues avant faisaient partie des détails de style évoquant les grandes Ferrari de competizione du passé, en particulier l'immortelle 250 GTO.

    Cette 550 Maranello fut livrée neuve en France par Charles Pozzi, le concessionnaire Ferrari, à un certain M. Christian Snider, de Paris. Puis elle a été importée en 2002 au Royaume-Uni, où elle a bénéficié en février 2008 d'un entretien périodique lors duquel ont été remplacés l'embrayage et les courroies de distribution. Son vendeur, un particulier, la décrit comme étant en très bon état ; elle est proposée avec toutes ses notices et tout son outillage, un fichier historique de justificatifs, ses documents d'immatriculation V5C et son contrôle technique en cours.
