Ferrari unveiled in September 2000 a highly exclusive limited edition 550. The "550 Barchetta" was to be built to celebrate Pininfarina's 70th Anniversary. Just 448 units were produced and all were pre sold to VIP Ferrari preferred clients. Apart from some supplementary bracing, the Barchetta's high tensile welded tubular steel chassis was much the same as the Berlinetta. Weight was practically unchanged too and meant performance would be on a par with the closed car, a 0-60 remaining at just 4.3 seconds.
It was the bodywork that inevitably saw the most radical alterations in the transition to Barchetta configuration, Pininfarina removing all evidence of a roof and cutting the windscreen down by 100mm to give a roadster-like appearance. A muscular tail, flat deck and roll hoops behind each headrest further transformed the restrained Berlinetta into a racey extrovert. New five spoke riveted alloy Speedline wheels were used and soon after became optionally available on the Maranello.
This LHD example, number 209 of 448 cars built, was unusually delivered as UK car (but in LHD) to its first and only ever owner in September 2001, via Maranello Concessionaires. Supplied in the classic colour combination of Rosso Corsa over a Grigio and Nero Hide with Nero Alcantara. Remarkably this Barchetta has remained under the same family ownership for the entire life and today has covered just 8,000 Miles.
Presented in exceptional condition both cosmetically and mechanically having been serviced (including belts) in August 2016 by marque specialists, and most recently being carefully detailed by our own master detailer, this example is accompanied by its original Barchetta soft top, all original tools and tyre pump, spare keys and fob, complete bookpack including the Ferrari torch and rare original Pininfarina "Certificate of Origin". This exceptional Barchetta is located in our showrooms just outside London and is available to view immediately.
