Engine Number: 61014

Odometer reading: 41,532 km

Please note that the Number plate V1KEN does not go with the car.

This Ferrari 550 Maranello is a two-seat grand tourer manufactured as a special edition in 2001 and is powered by a front engined V12. It shared its platform and 5,474cc engine with the 456 but was positioned as the company's high-end model. The car uses a transaxle layout with the six-speed manual gearbox located at the back, in-line with the driven wheels. It featured a luxurious and spacious interior and, unusually for a Ferrari, the boot could accommodate a set of golf clubs. The 550 has a tubular steel frame chassis with light, alluminium  bodywork. The Ferrari 550 has enjoyed a great amount of success on the racing circuits, often in collaboration with Prodrive. Ferrari sent a slightly 'souped-up' version to an oval test track in Columbus, Ohio and set three new world records as follows:

Covering 100 miles at an average speed of 190.2mph. Driving for one hour at an average speed of 184mph. Covering 100 kilometres at 188.9mph.

 To celebrate these records, Ferrari built 33 road cars to the exact specification of the record setting car. The differences over the standard car are the Fiorano handling pack, leather trimmed roll cage, suede covered steering wheel and carbon bucket seats with Daytona stitching and race harnesses. Other changes included the Scuderia wing shields, sports exhaust, brake calipers in Rosso, Bordeaux carpets and a WSR plaque.

This is thought to be the penultimate World Speed Record 550 manufactured by Ferrari and is the only one finished in Rosso with beige trim; the majority being painted in Grigio Titanio with Bordeaux interior. 

The car was imported from Italy, and can best be described as being in unmarked condition. The current owner has barely covered 2000 kilometers since his ownership. which formed one of his collections, speedometer reading 41,532 Km Since purchasing the vehicle in March 2015, having attended to the vehicle Various receipts for works carried out form part of the documented history of the car. 

Any inspection shall verify this Ferrari to be a stunning and clearly much loved example in every aspect; the familiar red coachwork being original and in excellent order. The interior is also  completely original and unblemished. 

This 550 is now registered in the UK and MoT'd to 20 April 2022 with no advisories. Due to the rarity of the Ferrari 550 World Speed Record Edition, this left-hand drive, low mileage example is most definitely one for the serious Ferrari collectors.
