Introduced in 1996, the flagship Maranello replaced more than twenty years of twelve cylinder mid-engine cars that began with the Berlinetta Boxer and was continued by the three variants of the Testarossa. Designed to recall the glory days of Ferrari's legendary front-engine sports cars (notably the 275GTB and 365 GTB/4 Daytona), the Maranello was simultaneously contemporary and classic. The Pininfarina styling evoked all the grace, proportions, and muscularity of the great vintage Ferraris without succumbing to retro design idioms. Mechanically, the car was at the cutting edge, with a quad cam naturally aspirated 485 hp V12 engine and 6-speed manual transaxle, which endowed the car with a 199 mph top speed.
This specific car is finished in the elegant color combination grey "Grigio Titanio" over black leather interior. It was sold from new in 1997 in Spain, then 10 years after was bought by a Swedish collector and then brought to Monaco in 2018. The car has always been regularly maintained, it comes with books, tools and original service book.
