Manual Unicorn Alert: One of 246 Ferrari 575M Maranellos Goes Under The Hammer

Manual V12 Ferraris will always be sought-after collector items, especially the later models like this 2002 575M, of which only 246 examples were made.

Finished in Nero Daytona over black leather, this Ferrari 575M is also fitted with the desirable Fiorano Handling Package that adds a stiffer suspension, different steering calibration and upgraded brake calipers.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 5.75-liter V12 engine with 508hp (515PS) and 434lb-ft (588Nm) of torque, which sent the 575M at 202mph. It was also the first time Ferrari offered the F1 paddle-shift transmission in a V12 model, which is why the manual cars are so rare.

The visual differences between the 550 and the 575M are limited to a larger hood scoop, redesigned front bumper and headlights, as well as new wheels. Cars fitted with the Fiorano Handling Package addressed most of the early criticisms, making the 575M more agile and generally exciting to drive, matching the ferocity of that V12.

Having a gated manual only adds to the experience if you ask us, especially when compared to the early F1 transmissions with the not-so-smooth gear changes.

The car has covered around 29,500 miles (47,475km) since new, with the current owner adding 1,500 of them over the last few years. Maintenance work includes new timing belts done last August, together with new engine and transmission oil along other bits.

This Ferrari 575M also comes with all the desired documentation, including a clean Carfax, the owner’s manuals, took kit and original car cover.

If you feel mesmerized already and have deep enough pockets, head over to Bring A Trailer and place your bid.
