2002 Ferrari 575M Still Looks Gorgeous After All This Time

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.

    The most beautiful Ferrari of all time IMO, I really miss these elegant lines 🙁

    Just browsed this today. This car is the reason why I love the F12 Berlinetta. I see so much of this car in that.

    This is one of Ferrari’s design masterstrokes.

    If I ever purchased a Ferrari for the first time, this would definitely be it.

    I love this one.. I have a scale model of it.

    599 SA Aperta or 575 Superamerica!

    The body colored headlights didn’t age well.
    To be fair, there is no car with body colored headlights that aged well.

  • It looks well maintained and has all the amenities.

    I love 550 personally but I wouldn’t mind taking these too.

  • Vassilis

    Truly stunning.

  • Infinite1

    Love this car since I’ve seen it in Bad Boys 2

    • Gustavo Adriano

      My favorite color is that Silver model from BB and a drama movie with Nicolas Cage…

      • Infinite1

        That’s the exact color I like as well

    I like all the Ferraris from that era, but my fave has gotta be the 456M GT. It was a big grand tourer with a V12 (maybe the same one as in the Maranello?) and cool pop-up headlights. I think it was the last Ferrari to have pop-up lights if I’m correct.

    This is a hideous Ferrari. In fact, when you strip the badge away there’s not many truly great looking Ferrari’s. Of the modern era, the 355 is in another dimension to this long nosed Supra clone abomination, the 458 Italia is stunning from every angle (the 488 is not) and the F12 Berlinetta is a cracker.

    Beyond that, you need to go back to the 60’s. Ferrari could sell a prancing horse badged dog shit if they wanted to, and on the evidence of 575M, they do.
