Does anyone know how many 550 Maranello's were produced?
I could not find data on this model, but I'd estimate daily output to be 5 cars * 200 days (V12 line output is 7/day, a good assumption is 2 456's for 5 550's). That gives 1000 cars per year from 1997 through early 2002, perhaps 4200 cars.
According to the book Ferrari by Pininfarina (Cornil), 3708 Maranellos were produced from July 1996 up to 12/31/2001.
According to Cavallino the number from FSpA is 3,715 550 Maranellos, not including the 448 Barchetta Pininfarinas.
I'd estimate there are just over 1,000 in North America.
Thank you for your help! I purchased a 1997 550 and people say that it is going to be a classic. I didn't know the production numbers so I really appreciated the help!
I doubt it will ever be a classic in the sense that it will appreciate over time.
Drive it, love it, enjoy it, beat it...and drive it.
1,000 in North America, wow. I guess there's reason for me to feel special, I own the only 550 in The Big Mango, or better known as Thailand.
Interesting to see how things change over time...I predict the same will happen with the 599.

Published 550 production numbers I've read are 3,083 from 1997 to 2001. Relatively low considering the prior v12 testarossa production numbers:
512 TR: 2,280
In terms of 550 collectibility, interest and subsequent values are already appreciating. The 550 design is aging well, a modern classic in the world of the high tech sports car. With impressive, visceral performance yet comfort, I still think it has room to grow in value. Given the market I have been watching, mine has realized about a 100% gain over what I paid when the car was at the bottom of the value cycle in 2010
That 3083 number is correct. Taz will chime in here soon...and this topic has been visited a number of times and can be searched on this forum.
Imports to the US started off modestly. I have heard that only 100 cars (or thereabouts) were brought here in 1997...
Dean, agree, there were just 3.083 cars produced of the 550 Maranello. Compared to a 930 Turbo (appr. 22.000 pcs.) and a Ferrari 360 (appr. 18.000 pcs.).
Imho, the 550's are highly collectable and still undervalued - where's there alternative to own a classical manual V12 two seater front engined Ferrari still availabe at an affordable price? The manual 575's shows the direction....
Agreed, whenever I considered selling my 550, there became a void I could never figure what to fill it with. Therefore the 550 stays in my humble collection. We all know the car ticks all the proper boxes, the rest are slowly realizing this also.
And how many 575's ?
2.064 examples, sure, Terry will mention the exact figures, but I think, these figures are quiet right. Manual 575's have already disappeared for most of us. 550's and 575's F1 will follow.....
3083 and 2064 are correct numbers. More stats on the 575M and some color info on all Ferraris From 02-05, not just 575s. Color table does not work too well here, but you can figure it out.
575M Production Numbers
Total Production: 2064 of which 246 were Manual (11.9%)
UK RHD Total: 251, of which 69 were Manual (27.5%)
ROW: 1814, of which 177 were Manual (9.8%)
US Production: 02: 208, 03: 167, 04: 127
05 235 (575M and Superamerica Combined)
575M First and Last Built
First: 123761 US 126969
Last: 141817 US, 141822 Euro
Paint Colors during 575M/Superamerica Production

Are there any reliable figures on how many 550's in u.s.?
Montezemolo-era Ferrari production averaged about 28% for the North American market. So that would amount to 863 550s being sold new here. Figure in attrition and you end up with maybe around 700 currently?
The only years I have 550 Maranello numbers are for 1997, 94, and 2001, 290. Would be a pure WAG on the other three years. Production was just getting going in the 96/97 timeframe, and shut down in Fall 2001 as the 575M came on line.
Terry, am I understanding your US production numbers correctly in that there were only 737 575Ms including Superamericas built?
Rick- Yup, that makes 28% of production, which lines up with Tom's figure for average US percentages. Earlier, US production was as much as 40%.
How many of them had FHP from the factory?
I believe there is plenty of upside with the 550. The Dino is approaching 500k and the production numbers are north of the 550. If you estimate 10% of them are wrecked or totaled, combined with the ones in Eu that have gobs of miles on them, a low mileage (sub 15k) original unmolested (no mods) 550 will become more and more rare as time passes. It's a pity they stay in the garage...they are amazing cars to drive.
