Vintage Ferrari 550 Maranello Auction Draws Enthusiasts at Bring A Trailer.

An exquisite 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello with only 18,000 miles will be auctioned off with no reserve on Bring A Trailer, creating a buzz among classic car enthusiasts. This iconic vehicle has a well-documented history in California and Arizona since 2002 and has undergone meticulous servicing to ensure it is in prime condition for its next owner.

Recently, the Ferrari received comprehensive maintenance that included a belt service, fluid exchanges, and the replacement of the battery, spark plugs, front control arm bushings, and fuel pumps and filters. The car is a stunning example of Italian automotive excellence, finished in the classic Rosso Corsa with a luxurious tan leather interior. The 550 Maranello is powered by a robust 5.5-liter V12 engine paired with a six-speed manual transaxle, offering an exhilarating driving experience.

The Ferrari is equipped with several high-end features, such as a Tubi-Style exhaust system, a limited-slip differential, and 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires from 2022 and 2023. The vehicle also boasts fog lights, Scuderia Ferrari fender shields, power-adjustable seats, a gated shifter, and automatic climate control, ensuring both performance and comfort for the driver.

Inside, the cabin is adorned with power-adjustable tan leather seats, drilled aluminum pedals, and a remote six-disc CD changer. The air conditioning system, repaired in June 2021, and other amenities like electric windows and rear luggage straps, add to the car's appeal. The leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel fronts a Jaeger gauge cluster that includes a 220-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 7,600-rpm redline, emphasizing the car's performance capabilities.

The 550 Maranello’s powerful V12 engine, featuring 48 valves and Bosch Motronic engine management, delivers an impressive 478 horsepower and 419 lb-ft of torque. With the recent belt service and additional work including a coolant flush and oil change, the Ferrari is in excellent mechanical condition.

This 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello, with its pristine condition and classic appeal, is offered with the owner’s manual, service records, a battery tender, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona title. The auction on Bring A Trailer presents a unique opportunity for collectors to acquire a piece of automotive history without reserve.
