History of the car by Charlie Kemp:
CHARLIE KEMP STATES:
“I own this 575M that is at Fraser Dante. I bought the car several years ago and put very few miles on it. I picked it up after carefully checking out the car and drove it home. I owned the Ferrari Dealership in Jackson for over 10 years and judged several Ferrari National Concours events. I could not find any repairs on the car they were that good. I knew about the damage. The car was sitting at a party and someone hit the left rear fender. I inspected this carefully and drove the car. There is no real damage and as I said you cannot see where it was dented. It has all the books and tools. I called the original owner of the car and talked to him about it. He had no problems with the car and just wanted a convertible Ferrari.
The car had a new radiator installed and at that time the timing belts and service was done. That was about 2000 miles ago. Everyone seems concerned about the timing belts on cars. I have owned car dealerships since 1967 and find all the concern about the belts is overblown. I have seen cars with 150,000 miles on the belts and they were still good. The interior has had all the wear signs removed, detailed and is in beautiful condition. There was some slight pulling about the very front edge of the windshield pad. The seats and carpets show really no wear and have fresh leather treatment. The engine is strong and the cars drives straight and true. The clutch works perfectly. I have had no problems with the car.
I personally know the company and the owner that did the work on the car. He did a lot of the work on the heads and engines for my race team at that time. I drove the car to several events and some highway. Because of various things in my work and businesses, I was just not driving the car enough to keep it. I have other collectible cars and have my shop. I decided to downsize when my old race car mechanic had problems with his health.”
In the build of this the new 2003 Ferrari 575M with mechanical improvements over the Ferrari 550, this has the larger and more powerful 5.7Liter V12 engine, 5748 cc’s, dual overhead values with 4 valves per cylinder, 508 horsepower at a beautiful sounding 7250 rpm, 434 ft/lbs of torque at 5250 rpmincluding bigger brake discs, this larger and more powerful engine in the 575M also included a different weight distribution, refined aerodynamics and fluid-dynamics and an adaptive suspension set-up with the the four independent suspensions controlled by the gearbox to minimize pitch throughout the 200-milliseconds shift time, thusly the Magneti Marelli's semi-automatic (Electrohydraulic manual) 6-speed 'F1' gearbox is a modern wonderment, the model number refers to total engine displacement in litres, while the 'M' is an abbreviation of modificato (modified), adaptive suspension set-up with fully independent suspension front and rear, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, model number refers to total engine displacement in litres
