1999 FERRARI 550 MARANELLO
- Fantastic color combination
- Perfectly restored in detail
- Originally delivered in Germany
- Extensive documentation available
The Ferrari 550 Maranello was introduced in 1996 as the replacement for the Ferrari 512M / Testarossa series. Where the 512M was equipped with a flat 12 cylinder mid-engine, the 550 Maranello has a front-mounted V12 engine. This made the 550 Maranello easier to use and more versatile than the Testarossa series. The undeniably timeless lines with the long classic bonnet and short stern make the Maranello a special appearance. Many a head will be turned when this car passes.
The large V12 makes every ride an unforgettable experience. It is not for nothing that this engine was declared "International Engine of the Year" in the category of more than 4.0 liters in both the year 2000 and the year 2001. When the gas is depressed, the 5.5 liter V12 comes alive with a roar. The 485 Italian race horses are eager to let the car accelerate. With the utmost precision, you as a driver can place the gearshift in the right gear of the six-speed manual transmission. In only 4.4 seconds, 100 km / hour is reached. Without fear, you can accelerate to the staggering top speed of 320 km / h. The car also remains stable at high speed. The perfect weight balance of the car makes every winding course a real pleasure. The only drawback is that a sporty driver will have to replace the wide rear tires earlier. The enormous power of 485 hp leaves little of the rubber on the tires.
About this specific copy
This beautiful 550 Maranello is executed in the beautiful color Canna di Fucile with a classic Rosso interior. This car was originally delivered in Germany. There the car is always dealer maintained according to the Ferrari standard. The documentation is present. In 2004 the car came in a collection, was put away and it has not been driven for a long time.
An employee from Ferrari Netherlands came to the track in 2015 in Germany. It makes every fancier extremely sad to see a car that has not been driving for years. The test of time had struck and as a result of years of stagnation, gaskets and rubbers had dried up. But a connoisseur sees the potential in the car. So only one option was possible: import the car to the Netherlands and fully technically renovate it there. This has therefore been done extensively at Kroymans Hilversum, where neither effort nor expense has been spared. Not only the engine, but also the gearbox was completely overhauled. And the interior was also brought back to new condition, with even a "sticky no more" treatment of all plastic parts. In addition, a Tubi sports exhaust was installed. Really every part has been viewed and the car is with the highest quality standard reduced to the particularly good condition in which the car is now; really a top spec. The complete documentation of the restoration is of course present at the car.
