Evaluation: Original | Sold new in Canada. Three-owner car showing 17,222
kilometers (10,701 miles). Has been exhibited at the Quail and won its class at the 2017 Cavallino Classic. One small, filled-in chip noted on the front bumper. Some shrinkage on the dash, the center console buttons are a little sticky, and the plastic surround on the door lock panel is sticky, too. Crease on the driver’s seat bolster. Passenger’s side headlight gasket is peeling off. Well-optioned, low miles, good color, and—most important—it has a manual gearbox. Located in California.
Bottom Line: RM had two 575Ms in this auction; the other, with 15,640 miles, got bid to $91,000 and failed to sell. The difference? It was an automatic. Although the 550 that preceded it was only available with a six-speed manual, the 575 marked the surprisingly rapid takeover of flappy paddles among Ferrari’s big GT cars. Manual versions are naturally much more desirable, but the premium for a 575 with a stick is even higher than it is for other Ferraris—in some cases about double the price of a paddle-shifted 575.
