The 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello Coupe has more power than you could ever ask for, at 515 hp. Ferrari got it right with the F1 transmission. It is super smooth and has lightning fast shifting. All this with the comfort of a Bently!

The Ferrari 575M Maranello Coupe with the F1 transmission is an automotive performance enthusiasts dream come true. This car does it all. Acceleration, handling, braking, style, sophistication well you name it and the 575 M does it as well, if not better, than any other performance automobile. The 5.8 liter V-12 motor is smooth and docile while driving under normal conditions but under full throttle the motor seems even more powerful than the 515 h.p./ 588 lbs/ft ratings listed by the factory. This motor mated to the F1 transmission provides an awesome powertrain, with the incredible dexterity of the motor and the effortless, instantaneous shifts make the 575 M an absolute pleasure.
The 550 Maranello becomes the 575M Maranello by way of an increase in engine displacement (from 5.5 liters to 5.75 -- hence the new nomenclature). A variety of updates have been made, including the availability of an F1-style sequential manual transmission.
