It must be heard – the powerful Ferrari 550 Maranello without a silencer

The owner of the Italian supercar installed a direct-flow exhaust system. The car so far drives without a silencer, as evidenced by the published video.

  There were times when Ferrari cars were equipped with the most powerful naturally aspirated V12 engines, which were located at the rear of two-seater cars, and a manual transmission was proposed as a transmission. The Italian brand was engaged in the production of such cars until the 2000s and one of the last cars that are considered classic Ferrari is the Ferrari 550 Maranello.

  This article will be about one of the owners of the 2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello from Argentina, who installed a straight-through exhaust system from Fiammenghi Engineering atelier on his car (the same length collectors, connectors, exhaust manifolds and H-pipes).

The video above shows the view from the passenger compartment, and from there we can hear the wild roar of the engine of the car – the exhaust sound seems damn loud. We can only imagine how the car sounds “from the side”, but in the cabin, when the engine is untwisted up to 7500 rpm, the sound becomes unpleasant. Under the hood is the famous 5.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 Tipo F133A with 478 horsepower.

 This roar causes a wild headache, especially if you hear it for a long time. According to the owner himself, even a few hours after the trip, there is a ringing in the ears from “this wild exhaust”. It is reported that at this stage of car upgrades, the operation of individual parts of the exhaust system is checked, later, silencers will still be installed.
