This is a proper Ferrari with a V12 engine and gated shifter.
There are many who feel the only true Ferraris have a potent V12 in the front and a gated shifter in the cabin. That’s exactly what you get with this 2002 Ferrari 575 Maranello being sold by Farland Classic Restoration. For its age, this car also has extremely low miles, which probably explains why it’s been so well-preserved all around.
Getting this car means daring to be a little different. Sure, the Titanium paint isn’t unprecedented in the Italian automaker’s history, but most people think of red when it comes to Ferraris. However, the color looks fantastic and has a rich luster, really flaunting the hood scoop, fender vents, and all the body curves. All four wheels are absent of curb rash or other damage, completing an impeccable exterior.
When a car has a mere 3,500 miles on the odometer, you wouldn’t expect the interior to look like it’s been used much. The Bordeaux cabin is essentially flawless, especially those Daytona seats. Other upgrades are present, including a leather headliner and rear shelf with luggage straps. Sitting on a field of bright yellow, the Ferrari emblem on the steering wheel stands out.
Housed under that long hood is a 5.7-liter V12 engine, putting 515-horsepower at your disposal. This is a car where you press down on the accelerator and it rockets forward with a ferocity, yet it can stick turns like a champion. Thankfully the original owner opted for the manual transmission instead of paddle shifters, making this car a blast to drive anywhere.
Two people have owned this Ferrari, and both have obviously taken excellent care of it, as evidenced by the included files from regular annual service visits. You could be owner number three, enjoying that raucous power and the rush of engagement a gated shifter provides. What’s more, all the original owner’s books, radio cards, spare keys/remotes, tire inflator, tool kit, and factory red nylon car cover in its bag are included.
If you want to get more details on this car or make an offer, contact Farland Classic Restoration. As you can probably tell from the name, this dealer does car restorations and has an excellent stock of vehicles, if you’re looking for something in particular.
