Ferraris 550 Maranello heralded a return to the companys roots in the grandest fashion. A two-seat, front-engined V-12 coupé had been absent from the companys line-up since the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. The decision was made to revive the format as a replacement for Ferraris mid-engine, flat-12 models. The result was an improvement over the outgoing F512 M, as it boasted superior performance, a larger and more comfortable interior, and a boot that could easily hold enough luggage for a weeklong road trip for two.

Like the Daytona, the 550 Maranellos success warranted the production of a limited-edition variant. It was decided that this car would be a homage to some of Ferraris earliest and most desirable cars. First displayed at the 2000 Paris Motor Show, the 550 Barchetta was a Barchetta in the truest sense. With only a rudimentary soft top for emergency use when caught in the rain, it featured a shorter, more aggressively raked windshield, two-piece alloy wheels, an aluminium fuel-filler cap and a restyled boot that was, surprisingly, larger than that of the coupé. A total of 448 Barchettas were produced, four more than initially planned due to concerns of superstition in the Japanese market (where this car was originally delivered to), but only 48 examples were produced in right hand drive, with 42 of these destined to the UK.

DD Classics is proud to offer this exclusive and rare RHD 550 Barchetta for sale, presented in a stunning colour combination of Bianco Avus with Pelle Verde interior. The car is in superb condition throughout. Inside, the 550 emanates exclusivity, and with the carbon fibre racing seats and extended carbon fibre inlays, this really feels like a special Ferrari.

This 550 Barchetta has travelled a mere 2000 miles from new and comes complete with the original Ferrari book pack and service book as well as a comprehensive file of paperwork and Classiche certification Red book pack. The service book shows the car was previously owned by a famous British Radio DJ.

Marking the rebirth of Ferraris drop-top, front-engine V-12, the 550 Barchetta is one of the most celebrated Ferraris of the earliest 21st century and a wonderful driving automobile in every right. For many enthusiasts, there is nothing better than the thrill of driving a V-12 mated to a six-speed manual transmission and combined with the experience of open-air motoring. The 550 Barchetta has quickly proven to be a true modern-day collectible, as it combines modern speed and performance with the feel and charisma of a vintage Ferrari. Considering its low mileage and beautiful colour combination, this would make a thrilling and unique addition to any significant collection.

Wonderfully usable yet unique enough to still provide a sense of occasion every time one slides into the drivers seat, the 550 Barchetta is truly an incredible car to own and behold, and one that never tires of providing top-down fun in the sun.
