Thanks to its timeless styling and its naturally aspirated V12 engine, this 2002 Ferrari 575M is the type of car that will land you endless style points on the street or at various car meets.
At the time of writing, with 2 days left to bid on Bring a Trailer, the highest anybody has gone is $70,575 (we see what you did there, bidder), although it’s safe to say that number is going to go up later on. In fact, after poking around AutoTrader for other 575Ms, we didn’t find anything cheaper than $115,000, while most tend to go for anywhere between $125,000 and $170,000.
According to the ad, this car has 39,400 miles (63,408 km) on the clock, which for a normal car wouldn’t be that much at all, but for an Italian exotic is much more than the average, which could explain the lower-than-expected price.
The seller, however, says that the red on tan 575M looks just as it did when it left the factory and that it was never driven during the winter. Inside, it has power sports seats, Ferrari-branded mats and steering wheel-mounted paddles to operate the F1 six-speed semi-auto gearbox.
Power comes from a 5.7-liter V12 that sends 515 PS (508 HP) and 588 Nm (434 lb-ft) of torque to the rear wheels. On paper, a brand new 575M hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds and maxes out at 325 km/h (202 mph). Even after a decade and a half, that’s still serious firepower, so the winning bidder won’t feel short-changed at all.
