Chassis No. ZFFBV55A220129435. Modena Yellow over black leather. 5748-cc, 515-hp V-12, 6-speed manual. Fiorano handling package, modular wheels, Tubi exhaust (original wheels and exhaust included). Scuderia shields, Daytona-style seats, tools, manuals.

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.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
