Launched in 1996, the 550 Maranello was the come-back of what made the success of the Ferrari Daytona receipe. Instant hit, Ferrari will sold over 3000 units of the staggering coupé. Based on the same platform and introduced at the 2000 Paris Motor Show to commemorate the birthday of legendary Ferrari coach builder Pininfarina, the Barchetta is the rarest road going version of the now iconic 550 !
Limited at 448 exemplars, this unique creation was a true « no-compromise » barchetta as it only come with a soft cloth top to protect the interior under 113kph. Delivered with matching helmets, the fantastic combination of open-top, V12 and manual gearbox is still one of the most looked after car of that era.
