For a sports car to be considered a grand tourer, it must have a few essential elements. These include a powerful engine mounted at the front, a comfortable interior and ride for long journeys, and power being sent to the rear wheels. In the past, Ferrari has gotten the grand tourer recipe just right with cars like the 275, Daytona, and the adored 550 Maranello. So, when it came time for Ferrari to come up with a successor to the 550, expectations were high with Ferrari lovers eager to see what Maranello had in store for their new model line. Rewind back to 2002 and at last, the wait was over with the brand new 575 hitting showroom floors. Although, aesthetically the 575 appeared identical to the 550 otherwise it was a completely different car.
The styling was left largely intact and to truly notice the changes you have to peel back its skin. Under the hood, the previous 5.5L V12 was replaced by a larger, more rambunctious 5.7L V12 which produced 503bhp and went 0-60mph in a touch over 4 seconds. The option to have a paddle shift F1 gearbox was added as well, a first for a road-going V12 model. The suspension was revised with adaptive dampers, which gave drivers the choice to make things sporty when they arrived at their favorite roads, or to keep things tame on their commute to work, which is really what a grand tourer is all about! In addition to the gearbox and suspension updates, the brakes were upgraded, as well as improved aerodynamics by way of redesigning all of the undertrays. The 575 was meant to be a road car that one could comfortably waft through the hills of Tuscany in and still have the ability to engage sport mode and access the performance of an amazing V12 power plant. All in all a total of 2,056 575M Maranellos left the factory, compared to modern Front engine V12 Ferrari production numbers, these 575Ms are quite rare, regardless of gearbox choice.
The 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello on offer, chassis #ZFFBV55A620127767, finished in Argento Nurburgring, is an excellent example with only 16,290 miles equipped with the F1 gearbox. Originally delivered to Spring Valley, NY the car traded hands only a few times before landing in Ohio, where it remained from 2015 to the present-day accumulating minimal miles. Although it was cared for properly, there were a few minor maintenance items we had attended to before bringing the car to market. We had the entire braking system gone through and checked, replaced fluids and hoses, as well as a flush of all other fluids throughout the car including the power steering and transmission fluids. Finally, the hood struts were replaced and 4 brand new Pirelli PZero Rossos were mounted, totaling the cost of its recent refreshing to a little over $5,000. The mechanical work, plus the professional detail job results in a wonderful driving experience as well as some wow-factor when approaching the car.
Included in the sale of this Ferrari are a clean carfax, service records, and original sales literature and manuals.
