Chassis no. ZFFBV55A250141041. Grigio Titanio over beige leather. 5748-cc, 515hp V-12, 6-speed manual, Fiorano Handling Package, Daytona-style seats, Scuderia shields, 19-inch modular wheels, air conditioning, Becker CD stereo, leather upholstered luggage shelf, books, tools, window sticker copy documented, Assembly No. 58737.

Evaluation: Showing 9067 miles but they show. Upholstery is lightly burnished and creased. Engine compartment is clean and in showroom condition, but the right sill and splitter are scratched. Some stone chips on the nose. Scraped wheel rims. Sticky interior switches. A desirable car but showing its age and some use.

Bottom Line: While a comparable 575M Maranello with the paddle shifter and low (but not negligible) miles is a $100,000 car the 6-speed (one of 246 built, so not exactly hen’s teeth rare) doubles the price as reflected here. The low miles (about 600/year) raises some questions about just how enjoyable the 6-speed is to drive, or is it just being bought for show?

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.
