2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello

  • Chassis no. ZFFBT55B000128466

Documents: German Fahrzeugbrief


  • Just 11,779 km from new
  • Stunning Argento Nürburgring over Blu Scuro
  • A truly exceptional grand tourer, fitted with Ferrari’s F-1 style transmission


At first glance, it would take a connoisseur to distinguish between the Ferrari 575M and its predecessor, the 550 Maranello. However, under the elegant Pininfarina bodywork, differences were significant. Changes included enlargement of the engine from 5.5 to 5.75 litres and the additional option of a six-speed F1-style transmission – a first for a V-12 Ferrari. The resulting increase in power and peak torque to 508 bhp and 434 foot-pounds brought a top speed in excess of 200 mph, after a sprint to 60 mph to just 4.1 seconds.

Nearly every element of the 550 was improved for the 575. New active dampers were fitted to improve handling; the body aerodynamics were tweaked to reduce drag; the headlamps were redesigned to feature xenon projector lenses for low beam; and even the cockpit and instrument binnacle were thoroughly modernized, all in the pursuit of creating the ultimate GT berlinetta.

Delivered new to Italy in 2002, it was tastefully ordered in Argento Nürburgring, complimented by Blu Scuro leather interior and navy blue carpets. Its current owner acquired the car in March 2012, when it had covered 7,100 km, and it has since covered a further 4,700 km, now showing just 11,779 km. The car has always been serviced according to schedule, and a comprehensive appraisal was carried out in December 2015 at 11,586 km, which found it to be in good condition mechanically and aesthetically throughout.





• Seulement 11 779 km d'origine
• Superbe couleur "Argento Nürburgring" sur "Blu Scuro"
• Grande routière vraiment exceptionnelle, équipée de la transmission Ferrari F1

A première vue, il fallait être un connaisseur pour distinguer la Ferrari 570 M de sa devancière, la 550 Maranello. Cependant, sous l'élégante carrosserie Pininfarina, les différences étaient importantes. Les changements incluaient un moteur de plus grosse cylindrée, qui passait de 5,5 litres à 5,75 litres, et l'option d'une boîte six rapports style F1, une première pour une Ferrari V12. L'augmentation de puissance et de couple qui en résultait, 508 ch et 73 m.kg respectivement, permettait une vitesse de pointe de plus de 320 km/h, avec une accélération jusqu'à 100 km/h en 4,1 s.

Presque tous les éléments de la 550 étaient améliorés sur la 575. De nouveaux amortisseurs actifs étaient installés pour améliorer la tenue de route ; l'aérodynamique était modifiée pour une meilleure pénétration dans l'air ; les phares étaient adaptés pour recevoir des lampes xénon pour les feux de croisement ; même l'habitacle et le tableau de bord étaient considérablement modernisés, tout cela dans le but de créer la meilleure berlinette GT possible.

Livrée neuve en Italie en 2002, cette voiture a été commandée dans la belle teinte "Argento Nürburgring", avec à l'intérieur une sellerie en cuir "Blu Scuro" et des moquettes bleu marine. Son actuel propriétaire a fait l'acquisition de la voiture en mars 2012 alors qu'elle avait couvert 7 100 km. Depuis, elle en a parcouru 4 700 km de plus, ce qui porte le kilométrage total à 11 779 km seulement. La voiture a toujours bénéficié d'un entretien conforme aux préconisations ; une révision complète, effectuée en décembre 2015 à 11 586 km, a permis de constater que la voiture était, à tous points de vue, en bon état mécanique et esthétique.
