Lot 112

2003 Ferrari 575 Maranello

  • Chassis no. ZFFBT55C000133227
  • Engine no. 76733

£160,000 - £200,000

Documents: UK V5

  • One of just 69 right-hand-drive, manual-transmission 575 Maranellos
  • Fitted with the desirable Fiorano Handling Package
  • Just 58,000 miles from new
  • One of Ferrari’s greatest modern grand tourers

Beautifully finished and specified from the factory, this 575 Maranello was originally delivered to the UK and is one of only 69 ever made in rare right-hand-drive specification paired with the desirable six-speed manual transmission. It is clear to see that this car was ordered with driving experience in mind, as its first owner wisely ordered his new Ferrari with the Fiorano Handling Package.

Finished in Blu Tour de France over a Sabbia interior, this example also features a special order Blu Scuro leather dashboard, steering wheel and seat piping, as well as Blu Scuro carpets and stitching in light blue, and Scuderia shields and brake callipers in Rosso.

Currently with its fourth owner, the car has remained in the UK from new and has been maintained by Ferrari specialists Carrs of Exeter since 2009, and Greypaul Nottingham prior to that. In 2012, the 575 took a trip to its native Italy where it was driven in the Ferrari Tribute to the Mille Miglia, and classified as finishing 48th out of 130 entrants. It is accompanied by a comprehensive history file, which includes numerous service invoices, as well as its original purchase invoice, both keys, owner’s manuals and tool kit.

Furthermore, it is important to note that the car has been outfitted with a Becker Ferrari radio with satellite navigation and Bluetooth, as well as an iPod and iPhone connection concealed in the ashtray, which remains fully reversible. A Becker head unit controls and displays track selection in the dashboard.

Truly a brilliant specification, this 575 Maranello seems to have all that a UK enthusiast would want from a 575 Maranello. A right-hand-drive, manual-transmission example in a seldom seen colour scheme, outfitted with the Fiorano Handling Package by the factory, this is a 575 Maranello that will leave its new owner wanting for nothing.
