Ferrari 550 Maranello Prodrive - The Last V12 Ferrari to Win at Le Mans

Limited edition of 550 individually numbered copies

The racing version of the Ferrari 550 Maranello built by Prodrive will go down in history as the final 12-cylinder Ferrari to win at Le Mans and the most successful Grand Touring sports car of its era.

Conceived by Frédéric Dor’s Care Racing Development outfit and designed, developed and constructed by Prodrive, the Ferrari 550 Maranellos entered 343 races across the globe between 2001 and 2008, scoring 60 pole positions, 69 victories and 151 podium finishes.

Across two beautifully-bound volumes and over 590 pages, Ferrari 550 Maranello – The Last V12 Ferrari to Win at Le Mans chronicles the complete story of the Italo-Anglo car from its conception, development and competition career to its retirement and subsequent eligibility in the world of historic motorsport.

The renowned Ferrari historian Keith Bluemel has authored the book, drawing on first-hand accounts from all the key characters involved throughout the 550 Maranello Prodrive programme and who were instrumental in making it such a success.

These include Dor himself, Prodrive founder David Richards and technical director George Howard-Chappell, the acclaimed designer who styled the racing bodywork Peter Stevens, and a raft of the great drivers who piloted the cars such as David Brabham, Darren Turner, Thomas Enge and Steve Zacchia. Also included are comprehensive race reports and ownership chains for each of the 12 individual chassis built.

The large square-format book is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of previously unseen images, including period racing shots and contemporary photography.
