Ferrari's 550 Maranello was introduced as a replacement for the F512 M in 1996 and found much acclaim during its five years of production. It featured a 484bhp front-mounted naturally-aspirated 5.5 litre V12 engine driving the rear wheels through a transaxle - the six-speed manual gearbox being located at the rear for optimum weight distribution. Suspension was by double wishbone, coil springs and anti-roll bars all-round and the braking by ventilated discs front and rear. The Pininfarina designed all-alloy body was mounted on a tubular steel chassis. A pukka GT car out of the Daytona mould, it offered speeds of up to 199 mph coupled with the ability to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.3 seconds - the sort of performance figures that wouldn't have disgraced an F1 car once upon a time. With a luxurious and roomy interior and a boot that accommodated at least a set of overnight bags (or a full set of golf clubs), this was the perfect car for dashing through Europe - Monte Carlo one weekend, Rome the next. It was replaced in 2001 by the 575M Maranello. Though not intended for use in motorsport, the 550 Maranello was nevertheless adopted for racing by a number of privateer teams, to good effect. 2003 was arguably the year of best results, with Prodrive winning the GTS class in the Le Mans 24-hour race and finishing second in the GTS class of the American Le Mans Series, and Scuderia Italia winning the FIA GT championship.

Supplied new by Maranello Concessionaires of Egham to Peter Hookham Miller Esq on 11th May 1998 and first registered as ‘SHY 1’, chassis 112188 was finished in Nero Daytona Metallic and specified with such desirable options as: a quilted leather rear parcel shelf, Fiorano Handling Pack and Daytona seats (the latter trimmed in Nero with Bordeaux inserts). Serviced at 857, 5,996, 13,056, 13,809, 14,571, 14,941, 16,314, 18,688, 20,297, 20,568, 21,803, 22,246, 22,714, 22,875, 22,946, 23,024, 23,028, 23,052 and 23,070 miles by the likes of Maranello, Rardley Motors, Autofficina, SGM Performance, Dick Lovett, QV Motors and Ferrari Birmingham, the 550 was last treated to a cambelt change a few hundred miles ago in 2019. Previously upgraded with a Becker Grand Prix stereo system which allows Bluetooth connectivity, the Ferrari comes with its original unit should a new owner wish to reinstate it. A former cover car for Classic & Sports Car magazine (June 2001 issue), this pampered, low mileage 550 is due to be serviced again by Ferrari Birmingham ahead of the sale. Worthy of close inspection, ‘C12 SCA’ is accompanied by its original book pack and a comprehensive history file.
