Succeeding the Daytona

The Ferrari 550 Maranello was introduced in 1996, the upmarket front-engined V12 coupe of the kind not seen since the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. It shared its platform and 5.5 liter engine with the 2+2 456, but was positioned as the company’s highest-end model. The car used a transaxle layout, with the 6 speed manual gearbox located at the back, in line with the driven wheels. The model numbers refers to total engine displacement (5.5 litres) and the model name of Maranello refers to the town where the Ferrari headquarters are located. The 550 featured a luxurious and roomy interior. The trunk was tall and wide, though not very deep, and could accept a full set of golf clubs or standard overnight bags. 3,083 units were produced. The 550 line was replaced by the Modificata 575 M Maranello in 2002. The engine is a naturally aspirated V12 with four valves per cylinder, dual overhead cams and variable length intake manifold. It displaces 5,474 cc and produced 492 bhp at 7,000 RPM and 568 Nm at 5,000 RPM. The top speed is an incredible 320 KM/h.
