The Ferrari 575M Maranello is an updated version of the 550 Maranello, and the predecessor of the 599 GTB Fiorano. It appears as a Tier 5 car in Asphalt 7: Heat.
Launched in 2002, it is essentially an updated 550 Maranello featuring minor styling changes from Pininfarina. The 575M was replaced by the 599 GTB in the first half of 2006.
Updates from the 550 included a renewed interior, but with substantial improvements mechanically, including bigger brake discs, a larger and more powerful engine, improved weight distribution, refined aerodynamics and fluid-dynamics along with 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 were available, a conventional manual gearbox and, for the first time on a Ferrari V12, Magneti Marelli's semi-automatic (Electrohydraulic manual) 'F1' gearbox. The 575 model number refers to total engine displacement in litres, whilst the 'M' is an abbreviation of modificato ("modified").
For 2005, the company developed a new GTC handling package and a Superamerica version (a limited run of 559 retractable hardtop variants of the coupe), along with raising the power from 515 PS (379 kW; 508 hp) to 540 PS (397 kW; 533 hp).
2,056 575M's were produced, including 177 with manual transmissions.
The Ferrari 575 M Maranello was added in the last update of Asphalt 7: Heat as a special event car.
