Next up for The Kidd Collection...

We are proud to bring this stunning Ferrari 550 Maranello to TheCarCrowd platform and as the next in the series for The Kidd Collection. By her own admission, this is a car that Jodie has a very close and personal connection. Read on to find out more about why this car is so special and a promising investment piece.


The Last Of The Old-School, Front-Engined Ferraris


As the replacement for the mid-engined V12, Ferrari decided that its new flagship should return to a more traditional front-engined layout and its flat-12 engine was to be replaced with a 'V' configuration. Adorning the same amount of cylinders, it changed the exhaust note into a beautiful, potent sound and one of the greatest that Ferrari had ever produced.

With a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 199mph, what Ferrari had created was a comfortable and practical, two seater Grand Tourer, with performance close to that of the 'bare-bones racer' Ferrari F40.


"It changed the exhaust note into a beautiful, potent sound, one of the greatest Ferrari had ever produced".

We are delighted to present this Ferrari 550 Maranello as the second car to join 'The Kidd Collection'. being one that is so close to Jodie's heart. This is a wonderful opportunity to preserve this exquisite Grand Tourer, a combination of a 5.5 litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine, mated to a gated six-speed transmission it's everything purists love in a Ferrari and a recipe unlikely to be repeated ever again.


A Truly Refined Driving Machine


Another beautifully designed machine from the pen of Pininfarina, its lines closely resemble that of its 2+2 stable mate, the 456 GT. However, there are also hints of classic Ferrari models like the twin exhaust air slots akin to that of the 250 GTO whilst the tail lights were reminiscent of the fabled 365 Daytona.


Schumacher also helped develop the engine in the 550, its name deriving from it 5.5 litre V12 engine and of course its hometown.

in 1998 the 550 broke the world speed record for production road cars, covering 100Kms at an average speed of 304.1 Kph it was also lauded by British magazine 'Autocar' as being 'Britain's best driving car' in 1998 and in the following year gave praised it as 'continuing to be the best GT car on the block'
