We are pleased to offer 1999 US model Ferrari 550 Maranello s/n 115139. From new in Blu Tour De France 522 with Navy Blue leather seats with White Piping, a Nero Leather headliner, Nero dash and Dark Blue carpets with Red Calipers. Fitted with a great sounding Tubi exhaust. One owner for the last ten years and complete back to the original warranty card showing its first owner in Lake Forest, Illinois. Also comes with the full set of eight total books and booklets, with, of course, the original warranty card showing Greg Berner, the salesman, Lake Forest Sports Cars, the selling dealer and the first owner; the leather carrying pouch for the books and the spare-in-a-can in its carrying case and bag.
This very attractive 6-speed 550 Maranello has been well enjoyed and driven, with 66,893 well documented miles, and has just been treated to a full cam belt service and comes with a no-questions CARFAX. The history is documented to the date first sold on the original warranty card, dated 05 March, 1999 and the first service on 22 Dec., 1999 at 2,189 miles with extensive service records from new.

In 2016 the front spoiler and hood were repainted by Magnum repair, Marietta, Georgia followed by a clear bra by Atlanta Protective Films, 645 Hembree Parkway, suite H, Roswell, GA. Thanks to the paint touchup and clear bra, the Blu Tour De France 522 paint is in excellent condition and the body is mirror straight and dent free with excellent panel gaps The black leather dash, glove box and center console surround are all in excellent condition, with no shrinkage on the leather dash or glove box. The engine compartment and trunk are very clean and nicely detailed, reflecting both the recent service and a cared for and well maintained Ferrari. 550 s/n 115139 sits on a good set of 255/40 ZR 18 front and 295/35 ZR rear Michelin Pilot Sport tires mounted on a very nice set of scuff and scratch-free 18″ wheels.

Introduced as the flagship of the Ferrari line in 1996, the 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 elegant and muscular styling by Pininfarina. We believe the 550 Ferraris are unquestionably the best-buy today in a user-friendly, 6-speed, 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 both 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 and are essentially bullet-proof in normal usage. 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!
