We are pleased to offer 2000 USA model Ferrari 550 Maranello s/n 118482.

All parts to fit the “Fiorano” package were supplied by Michelotto, the official “Tuner” for the Ferrari Factory, in Padova, Italy and were installed by Wide World of Cars, the authorized Ferrari dealer for upstate New York. We offer a unique chance to own a 550 Maranello equipped with features never offered on a US Maranello and only fitted to two US model 550s, both sold and updated by World Wide when new and both since sold by us.

550 Maranello s/n 118482 shows very well and needs nothing thanks to its current major service. The Speedline wheels show no curbing and carry four new Michelin Pilot Sport 255/40/18 front and 295/35/18 rear tires. The sticky-switches are being done and the carbon fiber sills and seat sides show only very light wear and are in excellent condition. The glass and lamps are like new. The engine compartment and trunk are excellent, as would be expected of such a well-cared for and just serviced example. Ferrari 550 Maranello s/n 118482 is equally as clean underneath with no scrapes or scratches to the belly pans.

Introduced as the flagship of the Ferrari line in 1996, the 550 Maranello took Ferrari back to the glory days of the long-nose, short-tail front-engined Lusso, 275 and Daytona coupes. An indisputably elegant design with both masculine and muscular styling by Pininfarina. We believe the 550 Ferraris are unquestionably the best-buy in a user-friendly V-12 Ferrari. Thanks to speed-sensitive power steering the 550 is surprisingly light and easy to drive in traffic at low speeds or on the highway at high speeds. With effortless torque, they are pleasant to drive in traffic using only two or three of their six gears and utterly relaxed in 6th gear at America’s highway speeds. The climate control works well and the cockpit is luxurious and roomy. The trunk has more than adequate capacity for true Grand Touring. The Maranello recaptures the glory days of Ferrari’s legendary front-engined V-12 sports cars. The 550s offer staggering yet effortless performance from its 485 hp 5,474 cc V12, with a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds and top speed of 199 mph, just touching the magic 200 mph mark!

550 Maranello s/n 118482 is fitted with a Tubi exhaust that makes just the right sounds both at idle and through the RPM range. Complete with the owner’s leather carrying pouch, the six owner’s handbooks and the full set of Factory tools in their carrying case plus the spare-in-a-can. Still fitted with its original and great sounding factory-installed stereo system with 6-CD changer. Fully serviced, excellent paint, excellent body and a very nice black leather interior. The front carpets have been covered with protective plastic since new and so are in excellent condition. This 550 is finished in an elegant and desirable color combination. Only 37,535 well-documented miles. Well-equipped and needs nothing. A no-stories, no-excuses car with some unique features that is ready to be enjoyed and admired and driven. Priced very right at $149,500 or best offer.
