Evaluation: Represented as one of approximately 246 6-speed examples built and just 80 for the US market. Showing 10,000 miles. Some minor small stone chipping on the nose and headlight covers. A few small scratches on the mirrors as well but mostly good paint. Good, lightly worn interior. Straightforward, carefully owned modern Ferrari in classic colors, and the open gate 6-speed between the seats is what really makes it a standout.
Bottom line: Stick-shift Ferraris got rarer and rarer over the course of the 2000s until Maranello finally phased out the classic open-gate 6-speed in 2012. Late model 6-speed Ferraris are a proven commodity on the collector car market, and in the 575’s case a car with a clutch pedal can sell for over twice as much as one with paddles. That’s exactly what happened here, as automatic 575s typically sell for well under $200K.
