Classics for sale: 2003 Ferrari 575M
The Ferrari 575M was one of the defining super GT cars of its era. Packing a 5.7-litre V12 under the bonnet, it was a force to be reckoned with â€“ and this one looks like a good buy
Thereâ€™s a lot to be said for a fast but luxurious GT car. Marrying high performance with continent crossing abilities makes for a versatile car that you could genuinely use every day. The Ferrari 575M was a force to be reckoned with during the early 2000s before it was replaced by the 599 GTB.
This very Ferrari 575M is currently listed for Â£86,995 by Millennium Heroes.

The 575 was effectively a heavily revised 550 with the wedge-shaped body being a reminder of its forefather. The large bonnet intake gills behind the front wheels made it quite an overt design, but it possessed the performance to back-up its eye-catching looks.
Its lengthy bonnet shrouded a 5.7-litre V12 engine that gave this Ferrari 508bhp and 434lb-ft of torque. That performance got to the rear wheels by either a beautiful open-gate manual gearbox, or the rare F1 automatic transmission. The automatic yielded a fractionally faster 0-62mph time of 4.2 seconds vs 4.25 for the manual. Just 168 UK cars arrived with the fancy new automatic gearbox.
That torquey V12 engine is perfect for covering vast distances with ease, all the while enjoying its unique 12-cylinder score. Luggage space is respectable with a good boot and additional storage located behind the front seats.
Todayâ€™s Classic for Sale is a 575M, but this one has been optioned with the Fiorano Pack at a cost of Â£2215 when new. This gives the big Ferrari a more focused handling balanced thanks to stiffer springs, different wheel geometry, modified steering and a thicker anti-roll bar. Critics of the time highly recommended this upgrade.
Itâ€™s an inconspicuous specification in black with tan leather, but the red brake calipers poking through unblemished five-spoke alloy wheels hints at the performance concealed. The left-hand drive 2003 car has done 23,000 miles with much of its time spent in Japan where it was originally registered. The benefit of any Japanese import is that the nation is famed for not salting its roads during winter months, so the chances of underbody corrosion are much slimmer.
