This 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello shows just over 34k miles and is a European-market car finished in Nurburgring Silver over blue leather. Imported to the US in 2000, this example spent its life in Florida and California until it was acquired two years ago by the current owner. It is powered by a 5.5-liter V12 paired to a gated 6-speed manual and was capable of nearly 200 mph when new according to Ferrari. Offered by the seller on behalf of its current owner, it is described as stock aside from a headlight upgrade and silicone coolant hoses. Documentation is included for a recent major service that included a new timing belt and water pump, while additional maintenance is detailed below. This Ferrari 550 is now being offered with a clean Carfax report along with a clear Oklahoma title. Pininfarina-designed aluminum body panels wear Nurburgring Silver paint, while stock 18″ magnesium alloy five-spokes are mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport rubber from 2008.

Records indicate a small repair to the lower front valance in 2003, and a chip is mentioned in the front lip. Factory headlamps have reportedly been upgraded to HID units. Bolstered sport seats are powered on both sides and wear deep blue leather that matches that on the dash and A-pillars. Occasional marks are visible in the center console and stitched trim around the instrument binnacle. A driver’s seat switch was replaced in late 2016, and typical sticky interior parts have reportedly been dealt with. he factory steering wheel is also covered in matching blue, while gear changes are carried out via a traditional gated shifter. Jaeger gauges include a 220 mph speedometer and a tach incorporating a redline north of 7,500 rpm. Just over 34k miles are indicated on the analog odometer, 1,200 of which have been added by the current owner. A factory CD player is retained in the center console.

The front-mounted V12 is a normally-aspirated 5.5-liter unit with 48 valves and a variable-length intake. The engine was said to produce 478 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 419 lb-ft of torque when new, which could propel the car to 60 mph in just over four seconds. Production 550s were equipped with a rear-mounted 6-speed manual transaxle and limited-slip differential. Two major services have taken place, the most recent of which included a timing belt and water pump three months and fewer than 300 miles ago. A variety of gaskets, hoses, belts, and hardware have also been replaced along with a new thermostat and spark plugs. Coolant hoses beneath the intake manifold have been upgraded to silicone in lieu of the often-troublesome stock items. The seller is aware of no current issues, and further service has reportedly been comprised mostly of oil changes, the last of which occurred in November 2016.

The Carfax report shows the car was imported to the US shortly after production in October 2000 and declared to meet US highway safety specifications that November. The report appears to show three owners from new and indicates passing of several California emissions tests. No accidents, thefts, or other issues are shown through the last reported date of September 2011. The sale includes owner’s manuals in their factory leather pouch along with some service records, though the original tool kit is missing. The car is currently in storage, and the seller will answer questions to the best of his ability.

At the time of writing it has sold at a price of $ 98,000
