Drive a Ferrari 550 near me

The 550 was two and a half years in development by Ferrari before it was finally unveiled at the Nürburgring racing circuit in Germany in the summer of 1996. It was an evolution from their previous GT two seater sports cars, which always traditionally had a mid-mounted 180° 12-cylinder flat engine.

The 550 saw a return of a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, the first Ferrari model to be engineered in this way since their 365 GTB/4 Daytona ended production in 1973. With a wheelbase of 98.4 inches, and a 6-speed gearbox, and aluminium body panels, it is a GT car built for impressive performance out on the track.

Powering for this two seater supercar comes from a roaring V12 engine, packing 508 bhp. And with acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and 0 - 100 mph in 9.8 seconds, it’s capable of 203 mph, making it one of Ferrari’s fastest ever models, and one you’re unlikely to forget in a hurry.

Booking a Ferrari Driving Package is extremely easy here at TrackDays, as we have worked tirelessly to ensure that your experience from booking to stepping into the vehicle is succinct and smooth. We have a variety of payment methods available plus a number of different booking options as well.

If you’re booking an iconic Ferrari experience for yourself then you’ll definitely want to check out our exclusive live date availability calendar.

You can simply choose the date and time that suits you and book directly onto the experience. This means you can choose premium time slots or even catch a last minute experience rather than having to wait!

Alternatively, if you’re booking for a friend, loved one or family member, then you’ll want to opt for one of our open date gift vouchers. These are a much better option when purchasing for someone else as they allow the lucky recipient to book at a time and date that suits them. It has 10 months validity and they can redeem the voucher online and then use the live date availability calendar as mentioned above.

Alternatively, if you want to make a booking over the phone, then why not give our incredibly helpful customer service team a call. They’ll assist you from start to finish to ensure that your Ferrari Experience is the perfect day out.

Remember there are safety restrictions in place for many of our driving experiences - such as age, weight and height. If you are unsure about any of the details our customer service team are here to help you 6 days a week. We also offer junior Ferrari driving experiences and this would usually be stated in the name of the package - but is not always the case. If a driver does not meet the requirements for their experience they will be offered a passenger ride as a replacement.

Cool Facts About the Ferrari 550

It’s not many supercars that you can say have inspired the design of a pair of trainers, but it’s absolutely true in the case of the Ferrari 550. The Nike Air Jordan XIVs, which were released in 1998, were inspired by NBA basketballing legend Michael Jordan’s own 550 model.

The 550 also won Ferrari an esteemed accolade from EVO magazine in 2004, as it won their ‘Greatest Drivers’ Car Showdown Challenge’, seeing off competition from, amongst others, the Porsche 911 GT3 and the Honda NSX-R.
