Cauley Ferrari of Detroit is thrilled to offer you this stunning 1997 Ferrari 550 Maranello in Nero over Tan leather interior with only 17,503 miles.

This is a 3 owner car that has been serviced exclusively by Cauley Ferrari since 2001.  All interior switches/buttons work and function as new.  All sticky buttons were addressed and refinished recently.  You will have a hard time finding a better condition 550 than the one we are offering.  The future owner will not have to do anything to the 550 except drive and enjoy. Give us a call at 248-538-9600, email at info@cauley.net, or stop by our showroom in West Bloomfield, to take a closer look at the timeless design of this gorgeous vehicle.

The 550 Maranello was quite a departure from the mid-engine 512 it replaced. Luca di Montezemolo, President of Ferrari at the time, decided he wanted Ferrari GT cars to go back to the traditional front engine grand touring layout that was incorporated in cars like the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Thus, the 550 was born.  All 550 Maranellos came with a 5.5 Liter naturally aspirated dual overhead cam V8 engine that produced 485 horsepower.  The 550's performance was incredible for the time and is still impressive today. 0-60 mph in around 4.2 seconds and top speed of 199 mph.  All 550 Maranellos came with a 6-speed manual transmission.  This differentiates it from its replacement the 575M which was available with either a F1 transmission or a manual transmission. Pininfarina designed both the exterior and interior of the 550.   Only slightly more than 3,000 550 Maranellos produced during its production cycle making it a relatively rare car.  In 2004, the famed British car magazine, EVO, conducted a "Greatest Drivers" Car showdown with the greatest cars from the previous ten years. The 550 Maranello won the showdown against some stiff competition. EVO said the following regarding the 550: "As with all great cars, there's no one facet that dominates the experience. Yes, the engine is mighty, but the chassis is its equal.  There's never been a supercar that's so exploitable and so rounded in its abilities."  The 550's relatively low production number, along with it only being offered with a manual transmission, and its exemplary performance makes it a great buy.
