Ferrari’s 575 Maranello was the first of the the company’s front-engined production cars capable of exceeding 200mph. Its predecessor was the 550 - the first front-engined Ferrari grand tourer since the Daytona. The larger 5.7-litre V12 produces around 533bhp, which means the 575 can sprint from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds. Three years after the launch of the coupe, Ferrari introduced the 575 Superamerica - a convertible version of the car with a revolutionary rotating glass roof. The glass was electrochromic, meaning that the tint could be adjusted electrically. Just 559 examples of the Superamerica were built, of which only 39 had a manual gearbox. The car offered here is a left-hand-drive model with the F1 semi-automatic transmission. It was specified from new with the GTC handling package, which includes firmer suspension, carbon ceramic brake discs and a tuned sports exhaust. It also has factory fitted extras such as - fire extinguisher, Hifi upgrade, Modular alloys, Electric Daytona seats with yellow stitching, scuderia wing shields and yellow rev counter. This is a low mileage car with only 15,000 miles showing. It is in excellent condition, so we recommend booking a viewing as s
When the Ferrari 360 was revealed at the 1999 Geneva motor show, it wowed the crowds with its svelte, sweeping bodylines. It was a far cry from the last two decades’ trends of sharp angles, pop-up headlights and open slats over the engine bay. In their place were curved wings; fixed headlights and a clear glass cover showcased the V8’s bright red plenum chambers. The Ferrari 360 was the company’s first production car with the chassis, body shell and even the suspension wishbones all constructed from aluminium. The 400hp V8, coupled with these lightweight aluminium components, gives the 360 a fantastic performance that was a substantial improvement over the F355. The gearbox was available with standard manual control or an upgraded and more sophisticated version of the “F1” system introduced on the F355 model.? One of the advances of the “F1” system was that, on sensing an input from the driver on either paddle, the throttle opening was adjusted accordingly to automatically smooth out the gear change. This particular Ferrari 360 Modena F1 is presented in the stunning Rosso Corsa. The interior features Nero hide and Nero carpet, electric seats, climate control, electric windows and h
The first all- aluminium front- engined Ferrari, with the engine fully behind the front axle, and the debut of the F1A semi-automatic gearbox. The Scaglietti introduced a variety of novel concepts to the Ferrari arsenal. Th e 612 Scaglietti’s engine is an evolution of that found in the two-seater 575M Maranello . Changes to the exhaust system, cylinder head inlets and manifolds give the car a 25hp boost over the 575M though, delivering a remarkable 540hp, with a top speed nudging 200mph. Ferrari’s 612 GT, which was named after the legendary Italian coachbuilder Sergio Scaglietti , was clothed in an all- aluminium bodyshell designed by Pininfarina . Revisiting one of the designer’s previous cars ; the scalloped side panels and teardrop headlights are inspired by the famous 375 MM Speciale #0456AM. Inside, the Scaglietti has luxurious accommodation for four people, trimmed in the best full-grain leather with contrasting aluminium accents for the switchgear, dashboard trim, drilled pedals and gearbox paddles. This particular 612 Scaglietti was delivered new to the UK in July 2005 and is presented in its original Grigio Silverstone paintwork with sumptuous Crema hide and Grigio Scuro c
The Ferrari 328 GTS and GTB had their worldwide debut at the 1985 Frankfurt motor show. Its styling is an obvious evolution of the Ferrari 308 series, with Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti softening his previous design so that it remained a popular choice with the Ferrari aficionados. Under the engine cover is the same transversely-mounted, fuel-injected V8 engine from the Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvole, with an increase in displacement to 3.2 litres. Performance, handling and road holding are a big step on from its predecessor, although it retains all the benefits of the Ferrari 308’s independent suspension and five-speed manual gearbox. Another significant difference over the Ferrari 308 is the use of galvanized steel, which greatly reduces rust problems compared to its forebear. In 1988, ABS became available on the Ferrari 328 series, and these later cars have a redesigned convex five-spoke alloy wheel to accommodate the system. While the 328 GTS was a runaway commercial success for Ferrari, the number of RHD cars built was less than 10% of the production run. Rarer still are these later cars, with fewer than 300 leaving the Ferrari factory in Maranello. This Ferrari 328 GTS, chass
The now-legendary Ferrari Testarossa series was launched with an astonishing showcase event at the Lido Club in Paris in October 1984, and the cars have been icons of Italian performance and passion ever since. In the 1992 model year, the Ferrari 512 TR was introduced as a substantially revised Testarossa, bringing with it a raft of changes and updates to improve the company’s flagship 12-cylinder supercar. It wasn’t simply a matter of modifying the engine to make the car faster; the 512 TR also boasted a revised exhaust system, a single-plate clutch to make gear changes slicker, bigger ventilated and cross-drilled brake discs, quicker steering and revisions to the shock absorbers to improve handling. Perhaps most significantly, the engine and gearbox assembly was mounted some 30mm lower in the 512 TR, dropping the centre of gravity to improve roadholding. In the Ferrari 512 TR, the 428hp produced by the fantastic flat-12 runs through a five-speed manual gearbox, and can propel the car up to 195mph. The performance is breathtaking. This particular Ferrari 512 TR is a truly immaculate example with just 24,200 miles on the odometer. It remains in its original factory colours of Ferra

Another significant difference over the Ferrari 308 is the use of galvanized steel, which greatly reduces rust problems compared to its forebear. The early models of the 328 have an edge as far as collectability goes, thanks to several interior details, as well as the elegant concave wheel design. In 1988, ABS became available, and these later cars have a redesigned convex wheel to accommodate the system. While the 328 GTS was a runaway commercial success for Ferrari. The car is presented in ultra rare White with tan hide and beige carpets. Thi
Launched in 1976 as more of an update to the 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer rather than an all-new model; the Ferrari 512 BB’s name didn’t follow previous Ferrari convention. Instead, it borrowed the format used for the Dino and GT4 at the time, referring to ‘5 litre , 12 cylinder’, rather than the individual cylinder capacity. The higher-torqued 5.0-litre Ferrari flat-12 made this Boxer more responsive and flexible than the 365 BB. A revised gearbox, with reduced pressure in the shift mechanism itself, made gear changes in the 512 BB slicker than in its predecessor, too. On the outside, wider rear arches accommodated the BB512’s wider nine-inch tyres , there was a more pronounced kink in the join between cabin and rear clip, and the Ferrari’s nose was revised with a shallow spoiler to reduce lift at very high speeds. NACA ducts ahead of the rear wheels were added to funnel air to the engine bay, and the three tail lights and exhaust pipes on each side of the 365 BB were swapped to two pairs of larger items for the 512. This particular Ferrari 512 BB is an original UK-supplied right-hand-drive car, delivered new to its first owner in July 1979. It was handed over at the Maltin Car Conces
With the exception of the limited-run F50, Enzo and LaFerrari, the Testarossa series (including the 512 TR and F512 M) is the last of the 12-cylinder mid-engined Ferraris. The car was launched with a stunning showcase event at the Lido Club in Paris in October 1984, and its classic status has seemed inevitable ever since. The 390bhp from the flat-12 runs through a five-speed manual gearbox, and can propel the car up to 180mph. This particular Ferrari Testarossa is a great example of an original left-hand-drive car in the highly desirable single-mirror (monospecchio) configuration. It was completed in Maranello in 1986. This Testarossa is finished in the iconic Ferrari red (Rosso Corsa) with cream (Crema) hide and beige carpets. The five-spoke knock-off magnesium alloy wheels are in superb condition. While originally delivered to the USA, this particular Ferrari has spent much of its life abroad.
The Ferrari F355 is often regarded as the transition point into the modern era of Ferrari road cars, employing Formula One-derived engine technology and advanced aerodynamics. Pininfarina's sleek F355 design for Ferrari won instant praise when it was revealed at the 1994 Geneva motor show - and its popularity has never waned. The Ferrari 355’s name is derived from its 3.5-litre V8 engine and five valves per cylinder- as denoted by the ‘ Cinquevalvole ’ inscription on the rocker covers. The conrods are titanium alloy, the clutch is housed in magnesium alloy, and the Bilstein shock absorbers use electronic sensors to provide active damping. In 1994, the Ferrari 355 was a technological tour de force. This particular car is a truly superb example of the Ferrari 355 GTS. It is presented in Giallo fly with Nero Hide, carbon sports seats in medium, with black carpets, Targa roof panel in body colour , 6 speed transmission, 18” Magnesium alloy wheels, air conditioning, Electro hydraulic suspension, electric door mirrors, electric windows, remote central locking, power steering, abs braking, and is offered for sale with a full service history file . Having covered only 15,900 miles from new
The Ferrari 308 GTB was the successor to the Dino 308 GT4. The engine, driveline, suspension, steering and brakes are shared with the GT4, but to style the car, Ferrari returned to Pininfarina rather than partner with Bertone again. The svelte lines penned by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina remain as alluring today as they were when first revealed in 1975. This particular 308 GTB was built in 1978, originally finished in Argento Auteuil over red Rosso hide. It was repainted in 1986 to its current red Rosso Corsa colour , and was retrimmed in Crema hide with red piping and red carpets. The car has electric windows, air-conditioning and 16-inch, Speedline split-rim alloy wheels. The file that accompanies this superb 308 GTB includes a substantial number of invoices and certificates to authenticate the car’s excellent condition and history, including records of an eight-year period of ownership with the renowned music producer, Pete Waterman. After spending the last four years in Australia, the car returned to the UK in August. It has driven less than 100 miles since its last annual service, and has a documented mileage of 51600 miles from new. Just like its GT4 forebear, the 308 G
The Ferrari 456 GT was revealed in 1992 at Garage Francorchamps in Belgium, and celebrated as the most powerful 2+2 in the world. It?was the first road car launched under the auspices of renowned former Ferrari president, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo . In di Montezemolo’s own words it was ‘a totally new kind of Ferrari in every sense of the word’. A completely new 5.5-litre Ferrari V12 engine was mated to a six-speed manual transmission, with a sop histicated suspension set-up and freshly designed switchgear. In 1996, the Ferrari 456 GT four-speed automatic was launched, followed in 1998 by the Ferrari 456M or ‘ Modificata ’. Updates to the engine management, interior and aerodynamics were added but performance was unchanged. Generous boot space and a spacious cabin make the Ferrari 456 an ideal family touring car. The interior features electrically adjustable seats, air-conditioning and electric windows. This Ferrari 456 GT is one of just 141 six-speed manual cars imported from Italy by Maranello Concessionaires and was first registered in May 1995. It is presented in the unusual and striking factory specification of silver Argento Nurburgring with blue hide (Connolly leather A4307
Every single mid-engined V8 Ferrari up to the new 488 GTB can be traced back to the 308 GT4. Bertone’s bold, angular car was the successor to Pininfarina’s svelte Ferrari Dino 246 GT, and with a transverse-mounted engine, the design allowed for a 2+2 seating layout. Ferrari’s Dino 308 GT4 is a wonderful car to drive, with a powerful and flexible 3.0-litre V8 and fully independent suspension, which allows for fast, relaxed and comfortable progress. The Ferrari was a smash hit with the motoring press at the time, with Motorsport magazine’s 1974 road test concluding: ‘This must be the car for which nearly every Dino 246GT owner has been waiting’. In Autosport magazine, John Bolster added, ‘It is delightful to drive and worthy of bearing that most famous name’. This particular Ferrari 308 GT4 is an outstanding example, finished in the rare combination of Verde Pino Metallizzato with the optional full leather interior in cream hide. The Ferrari was also ordered new with air-conditioning and a heated rear windscreen. The first owner of this 308 GT4 was the managing director of a London clothing company. He was adamant that he did not want a red Ferrari, so chose this superb green hue fro
Ferrari’s F430 Spider is perhaps the company’s ultimate useable convertible. It offers just as much excitement and agility as the Berlinetta, but with the added bonus of being exposed to the howl of its 483bhp mid-mounted 4.3-litre V8. The performance is simply breaktaking, with acceleration from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds and a maximum speed in excess of 195 mph. Ferrari’s F1 gearbox, as fitted to this example, was upgraded in the F430 with cutting-edge software to allow gear changes taking just 150 milliseconds per shift. Contemporary road tests by the motoring media remarked that the drop-top lost nothing to the closed car in terms of performance, so it is arguably the more desirable model. The F430 came with adjustable suspension as standard, which - along with the electronic differential and transmission settings - is controlled by the steering wheel-mounted Manettino switch. This F430 Spider is presented in lustrous black (Nero) paintwork with the superbly comfortable and supportive electrically-operated seats in full black leather. The exterior is highlighted by the bright red plenum chambers visible through the glass rear deck, 19-inch alloy wheels and the opt
When Ferrari set about evolving the fantastic 550 Maranello, the most significant change they made was to the engine displacement, as referenced by the new name: 575M Maranello. The 5.5-litre V12 was enlarged to 5.75 litres, producing a maximum 515hp - up 30hp on the 550. Top speed increased from 199mph in the 550 to 202mph in the 575. While the Ferrari 550 was only offered with a manual gearbox, the 575M could be specified with the F1 semi-automatic transmission. Equipped with this gearbox, the 575M is capable of 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds. Ferrari’s 550 and 575M Maranello were the company’s first two-seat Grand Tourers for more than 20 years - since 365 GTB/4 Daytona production wound up in 1973. They are now rightly regarded as wonderful modern classic Ferraris, combining beautiful styling and superb performance with sumptuous cabins. This particular Ferrari 575M Maranello is finished in Blu Tour de France with Crema hide, blue piping and stitching and blue carpets. Another exquisite detail of the interior is the beautiful rear luggage shelf of contrasting Blue hide. The 575M Maranello is becoming more sought after by the week, and this particular car has the best specification we’ve
The Ferrari 308 GTB was the successor to the Dino 308 GT4. Indeed, when the new Ferrari was first spotted testing in Italy, the ‘Prancing Horse’ magazine in the US called the 308 GTB ‘a very new Dino’. While the production car was Ferrari-badged from day one, it shared many of the Dino’s star qualities. The engine, driveline, suspension, steering and brakes are shared with the 308 GT4, but to style the car, Ferrari returned to Pininfarina rather than work with Bertone again. The svelte lines penned by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina remain as stunning today as they were when first revealed in 1975. In 1977, the Ferrari 308 GTS was introduced, which featured the added benefit of a black targa roof panel that could be easily removed and stowed in the cabin behind the seats. This particular Ferrari 308 GTS is an original right-hand-drive example, first registered in the UK in June 1979. It is presented in red (Rosso Corsa) over beige (Sabbia) hide with Corda carpets, and still has its original and correct shallow front spoiler. The factory specification included air-conditioning and wide wheels. The beautiful interior has outstanding patina with the all-original leather trim; its c
The Paris Motor Show in October 1984 saw the return of the glorious Testarossa as heir to the 512 BBi. Pininfarina’s design broke somewhat with tradition and was striking and innovative. The side intakes were larger than on the previous model and this constraint saw the introduction of the long side strakes that would become the Testarossa’s most recognisable feature. The evolution of the 12-cylinder boxer engine saw it equipped with four valves per cylinder: the most powerful engine mounted on a production sports car at the time of its launch. The Testarossa was a model that took its name from the company’s history, being derived from the successful 500 and 250 Testa Rossa series of sports racing cars from the late fifties. This particular Ferrari Testarossa is a great example of an original left-hand-drive car. It was completed in Maranello in 1987. This Testarossa is finished in the iconic Ferrari red (Rosso Corsa) with black (Nero) hide and black carpets. The five-spoke knock-off magnesium alloy wheels are in superb condition. There is a full service history that accompanies the car. The paint work is all factory original and will be fully serviced by Foskers before delivery.
