Ferrari 575 GTC details:
Upgrades from the 550 include a renewed dashboard, but with substantial enhancments inside, including bigger brake discs, a larger and more comprehensive motor, a various weight distribution, refined aerodynamics and fluid-dynamics and an adaptive suspension set-up (the four independent suspensions are also controlled by the gearbox, to minimize pitch throughout the 200-milliseconds shift time). Two six-speed transmissions are available, a traditional manual gearbox and, for the first time on a Ferrari V12, Magneti Marelli's semi-automatic (sequential) 'F1' gearbox. The model number refers to the engine's capacity in litres, whilst the 'M' is an abbreviation of 'modificato' or 'modified'.
For 2005, the company designed a new GTC handling suite and Superamerica version (a limited run of 559 convertible variants of the coupe), along with upping the performance from 515 PS (379 Kw) to 540 PS (397 Kw). A base-model Ferrari 575M Maranello costs US$224640,.
The GTC suite contains Ferrari's fourth ceramic composite brake system (the first 3 being featured on the Challenge Stradale, F430 and Enzo) as well as a more performance-tuned suspension system, low-restriction exhaust system, and original 19 in wheels. The new brakes are based on the company's Formula One technology. They use 15. 7 in discs with six-piston calipers in front and 14. 2 in discs with four-piston calipers in the back. The suite is priced at US$23500,.
