Being the successor to our most recent Ferrari post, the Testarossa, the 550M had a lot to live up to! The 550M became the first Ferrari to sport a front engine, rear drive layout in 23 years, the previous car was the 365 Daytona!With an all new 5.5ltr V12 upfront the 550 name was born and Ferrari had made a modern GT car again!
Finished in the heritage of Giallo Modena, this is a special colour on any Ferrari, and we think this particular 550M takes this hue to a new level! Just look at the way it bends and jets around the 550 shape! Another iconic Ferrari! A truly "modern" classic!
Nearly a decade after release in 2004, @officialevomagazine ran a ‘Greatest Drivers’ Car’ showdown with the greatest cars from the previous ten years, including the Porsche 911 GT3, the Honda NSX-R and the Pagani Zonda C12S. The 550 Maranello won that challenge. The magazine stated that ‘As with all great cars, there’s no one facet that dominates the experience’. ‘Yes the engine is mighty, but the chassis is its equal. There's never been a supercar that's so exploitable and so rounded in its abilities'.
This left hand drive 550M has been used to cover many miles throughout Europe and Britain and required some light TLC from our world-class technicians. Matte black window surrounds re-finished due to some fading, front bumper stone chips and a nice restoration of the paintwork via @rupesusa fantastic polishing range. Finished off with one of our favourite products for rich colours @carprouk Elixir quick detailer.
Whether it's one of Maranello's beautiful creations, Sant'Agata's wild bulls, Stuttgart's finest machinery, a family workhorse or a humble city car, each car is treated to the same level of devotion and care whilst with us.
Q45: What’s the most embarrassing mistake you’ve ever made?
A: Fuji 2007 [when Seb crashed into the back of future team mate Mark Webber, eliminating both men from the race]. And after that comes the incident with Lewis in 2017 when I hit his car when I was angry.
