Richard in the Ferrari 550 Maranello
A front-engined manual V12... with a large helping of soul. Richard has a go in the Ferrari 550 Maranello

The important details are that they only sold 33 WSR-spec 550s worldwide, and that they all came in this gorgeous Grigio Titanio with red leather. On the downside, the handling is made rather firm by the Fiorano handling pack, and a million stylish moments will have been cluttered by the race harnesses. But these are small prices to pay for the unalloyed joy of listening to that V12 spool up and deploy 485bhp to the rear wheels via that six-speed manual.
