Front engined V12 Ferrari Grand Tourers have always been the stuff of legend since the days of the original 365 GTB/4 Daytona back in the early 1970s. This evolution has included the famous 456 model which was superseded in July 1996 by the Pininfarina designed 550 Maranello. Displacing 5,500 cc, and built in Maranello, the 478 bhp engine powered a rear wheel drive, front engined car, with a rear 'transaxle' layout. All of this, when combined with the tubular steel space frame chassis, aluminium body panels, and double wishbone suspension - made a superb drivers car! This particular 550 Maranello has an interesting past history having been formerly owned by the great Sir Geoff Hurst MBE, the living legend of football and hat-trick scorer when England last won the World Cup in 1966. His name appears on the V5C as the immediate previous owner. Finished in Argento Nurburgring with black leather Daytona style seats, and a full carbon interior trim, along with a leather headlining and silver-painted brake calipers. This UK supplied right-hand drive car has a full service history with both Ferrari main agents and Ferrari specialists and is currently being serviced by highly respected Ferrari specialists, Terry Keys Motorsport, based at Silverstone circuit. They can provide an independent report on the car prior to the Sale to any interested parties. It has covered just 36,600 miles from new and has a fresh MOT until late May 2017. The car comes with 2 sets of keys, full Ferrari leather bound book pack and service schedule, as well as a fitted red Ferrari cover. The car has been stored in a correct heated and dehumidified facility by our vendor for the last two years, covering less than 1,000 miles during that time. Now ready to be enjoyed once more, it is competitively guided and is a rare car with significant investment potential.
