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. The original colour scheme recorded on the warranty card was Giallo Modena (yellow) with a black leather interior. Imported into the UK in 2002, the car benefits from a scheduled service carried out in February 2018 when the cam belts and clutch were changed. We believe that the odometer was changed upon the car's importation into the UK (now showing some 20,800 miles). Accompanying service invoices suggest the car's mileage prior to its UK registration was in excess of 63,000 kilometres (approximately 39,000 miles), which would make the car's total mileage circa 60,000 miles. It is unknown when the car's colour was changed from Giallo Modena to the arguably much more attractive titanium grey metallic.

    Regarded my many as one of the last true classic Ferraris, this 550 Maranello is offered with all books and tools, a history file of receipts, and UK V5C registration document.
