Main dealer and Ferrari specialist service history
Ferrari’s 550 Maranello heralded a return to the company’s roots in the grandest fashion. A two-seat, front-engined V-12 coupé had been absent from the company’s line-up since the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The decision was made to revive the format as a replacement for Ferrari’s mid-engine, flat-12 models. The result was an improvement over the outgoing F512 M, as it boasted superior performance, a larger and more comfortable interior, and a boot that could easily hold enough luggage to make it a grand tourer.
This stunning Argento Nurburgring, manual 550 was supplied by Ferrari Colchester and first registered on the 16th April 1997. Specified in the stunning and desirable colour combination of Argento Nurburgring Metallic over Nero hide
Accompanying the car is a complete set of owners hand books, including the service book, all stamped from Ferrari main dealer and Ferrari specialists, kept in the original leather wallet. In addition there is a thorough written document specifying service history and ownership changes.
On the road, this 550 performs faultlessly. A front engine V12 with the manual gearbox ensures a special driving experience as one of the best grand tourers. Refined power makes driving this car intoxicating, wondering how you could ever put it down. Considering its well documented history, our Ferrari 550 is a fantastic opportunity for any serious Ferrari driver or enthusiast. Having just been treated to a major service, including belts change at Ferrari specialists the car is on the button and ready to use.
