550 Maranello gearing question

Good afternoon All,

Can anyone tell me, please, what is the overall gearing in terms of mph per 1,000 rpm in top gear for a UK spec. 550? Thanks.

Best wishes, John

John- Gearing is the same for all the Maranellos, Barchetta and Superamerica and set up for ~26" tire diameters F&R. You can look in your owners manual for the gearing and if you do not have one, download one for free at ferraridatabase.com. Ben Deetman's site (same site) also has a workshop manual you can download for free.

If you wanted speeds in gears:

1st: ~48 mph
2nd: ~69 mph
3rd: ~96 mph
4th: ~127 mph
5th: ~160 mph
6th: ~199 mph

Modified from Road & Track numbers. They were using 7700 for the calculations and redline is actually 7500 rpm.

~26.5 mph/1000 rpm

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

John- Reread your question and edited with 26.5 mph/1000 rpm.
