Ferrari introduced the 550 Maranello as a flagship model of the Ferrari line in 1996. The 550 Maranello replaced a long product line of mid-engined Ferraris that began with the Berlinetta Boxer to the Testarossa. The 550 Maranello was designed or inspired to recapture Ferrari`s legendary front-engined GT sports cars from the 1960's and early 70's, most notably the 275GTB/4 and 365GTB/4 Daytona. The classic or traditional Ferrari V-12 with front  The Maranello is undeniable a beautiful and elegant design. The Pininfarina styling is both masculine and muscular without being overstated or a showy racer. The car is both comfortably balanced and fast with the 485hp Ferrari`s V-12 that transmits power through a traditional 6-speed manual transaxle. Ferrari only produced 3,531 550 Maranello between 1996 and 2001. 

This car first sold by Ferrari of Houston. Ordered in Nart Blu (dark blue metallic) exterior color with optional Scuderia Ferrari shield on fenders. Interior has dark blue leather upper dashboard and steering wheel, Cuoio darker tan leather seats and panels over dark blue. This four-owner 9,600-mile car has been well maintained by previous owners. Records show a major belt service performed by Ferrari of Beverly Hills on 8/2013 at 7,057 miles. Additional service records indicate new motor mounts, interior items were upgraded to address Ferrari's sticky surface issue. Recently four new Michelin Pilot Sport tires were installed to replace the good yet 10 year old aged tires.  

The NART blue paintwork is beautiful, largely free of wear with only a few light small marks. Not a real common color for the 550 Maranello. In great condition for the age of the vehicle. The paint is extremely lustrous. The glass is excellent, as well as the lights and other exterior trim. The wheels are in excellent condition. Recently replaced the aging tires with new Michelin Pilot Sport tire. 

The interior is in beautiful condition, with a like new look and finish. A great color combo and comfortable place to enjoy a long road trip. The dash is in excellent condition as well as the remain interior surface, with only very light normal/natural wear and aging. The carpets are excellent as well. Even the easily chipped door releases are unmarked. With Ferrari's unfortunate sticky surface issue on certain touchable items, it is very nice to have the updated clean and sticky free to touch surfaces. Overall a wonderful interior. 

The trunk and engine compartment are both in extremely clean condition. Inside of the trunk is the original factory 6-CD changer, original tire inflator, tool set, owners manual in leather holder, and factory car and seat covers. The underside is reflects the mileage.

This is an extraordinarily and appealing example of this attractive model. A timeless configuration, with a smooth running front engine V12, mated to the gated 6-speed transmission. It is no wonder that the 550 Maranello has emerged as a modern classic and seen as a future collectible. On the right kind of Ferrari to enjoy on road trips, special events or to have in a collection. Modern enough to be driven in comfort and easy to use, as well as classic in style and mechanical when driven.
