Transmission Change ?

Hi..

If you buy a Ferrari 575M Maranello F1, and you don't like the F1 but there weren't any Manual in Black/Black would it be possible to change the transmission from F1 to Manual 6-Speed ?

Thanks guys

of course you can do that, its just $$$ that matters
you could also buy a whatever color 575M manual then paint and chage the interior color, wouldn't that be easier ?

You are saying something......
But isn't that more expensive?

My dream 575M
Exterior: Black
Interior: White or Black
Gearbox: 6-Speed Manual
etc.

Cheers

I don't think changing the exterior / inteiror color would actually cost more than changing the whole transmission.
Changing the transmission requires a lot more work to be done, where it involves the drivetrain, and I think thats something you don't want anybody to touch except Ferrari people.
Will you be buying the car new or used?
If you are buying it as a new car, Ferrari can do all these for you. You can pick any color exterior / interior, transmission, and even the materials used in the interiors, all at an additional price of course.
But personally I think it is the best way to do it, because everything is factory-built and it will have a better resell value.

Since you plan on used, you could always settle for about 20 less horsepower, ever so slightly less refined aerodynamics and suspension, and not quite as trendy of a headlight cluster and get the 550. You are way more likely to find a black on black stick, plus i think you can find them for as low as 120 Gs.

because the 575M Maranello only comes with a F1 Transmission and you can change the transmission to a manual transmission and you could choose a 575M Maranello in black/black if they have it in there inventory or you can give it a new paint job.

Re: Transmission Change ?

If you don't get the money until 2020 why bother looking at cars to buy now? By the time you get the money the 575 will be obsolete and they'll be as affordable as Testarossas. Id be more exited about whats coming out next then whats out now.
