1998 Ferrari 550 Automatic (one-off prototype RHD) £POA
We are delighted to offer this beautiful and unique one off RHD prototype of the Ferrari 550 Maranello built by the Ferrari factory and Pininfarina with 5 speed automatic gearbox with Tiptronic option (by Porsche).
Built as a special order for the Brunei Royal family who you probably know have a vast car collection with some of the rarest cars ever made and in many cases helping manufactures like Bentley, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, Mercedes Benz and many more in research and development into new models and enhancements to engines, Design and concepts for the future.
This stunning and only RHD 550 Maranello Automatic example in the world is finished in Red ( Rosso Corsa 322) with Black ( Nero) full leather, it has been part of a couple of very special car collections hence the very low mileage of 5,352 miles from new but has been loved and looked after very well and is presented in original condition that is exceptionality good, the car has Recently ( a month ago) benefited from a service including cam belts and new fuel pumps at a Ferrari main dealer, also coming with the car is it’s book pack, tool kit, car covers and the rare spot lamp that is powered by the cigar lighter, it will have a full health check service including a full detail inside and out, accompanying the car is also paperwork confirming its provenance from the Ferrari owners Club amongst others.
I have been lucky and honoured to have been dealing with some of the world’s finest cars mainly Ferrari’s over nearly three decades and have driven almost everything I have ever wanted to ( still not finished with that!) and the Ferrari 550 is a car that I’ve had lots of and never get bored of them and THIS particular 550 is no exception it’s drives beautifully and like a real automatic not like the 575 F1 that replaced it ( I love the 575 and know how to drive properly too!), it’s a smooth and seamless drive again a different car to the 456 GTA with a 4 speed gearbox ( again I like the 456 GTA ) thanks to the Porsche 5 speed gearbox.
This ultra-rare example is a credit to any car collection as it’s past shows, from a investment side it would be a fantastic opportunity but if I couldn’t keep it I would drive it and thoroughly enjoy it as it’s a very usable and unique car, we are only on this earth once!
