We are pleased to offer 2001 550 M/GTC Conversion s/n 122781, a one-of-a kind 550 Maranello that was converted to 550 GTC race specs by Jim Busby Racing of Laguna Beach. Busby racing had already race prepared 550 s/n 113592 for the 2012 Bonneville Speed Week for the same owner. Driven by its owner, the CEO of ACAT Global (Advanced Clean Air Technologies), 550 s/n 113592 turned 218 MPH at Bonneville. The owner then had this second 550 M/GTC Conversion s/n 122781 built for the Pike’s Peak Hill Climb at a build cost of well over $200k and so it conforms to full FIA race standards. It features a 620 hp 6Ôlitre VÔ12 putting power to the ground through a sixÔspeed manual transaxle. 550 M/GTC s/n 122781 features a beautiful hand crafted all alloy body; a full honeycomb front splitter and sill panels; a carbon fiber rear wing with rear ground effect diffusers; composite front and rear bumpers; a functional roof scoop for driver cooling; carbon fiber hood vents; custom rocker panel with exhaust exit; custom headers and side exhaust; adjustable control arm suspension; adjustable Muller coil-over shocks with external accumulators and beautifully flowing hand crafted aluminum fender flairs to cover the huge Monotec 19″ wheels.

Over the last forty years Busby Racing has won at the 24 hours of Lemans for Mazda in the GTP2 class and at Le Mans for Porsche in the IMSA GT class, won the 24 hours of Daytona as a Porsche 962 GTP team and has been a factory-backed race team for Porsche, BMW, Mazda, BF Goodrich and others, with well over 125 race entries at all levels of professional racing. Busby Racing’s experience is clearly evident in the very impressive build quality of every component of 2001 550 M/GTC Conversion s/n 122781 with flawless metal panel fabrication, the massive roll cage, the fuel system, the Motec engine management system and the amazing attention to detail throughout.

Very similar to the Prodrive 550 racers or the Factory built 575 GTC (both currently priced at $600k plus range) this 550 M/GTC Conversion will give no lack of power and performance without the hefty price tag. It comes with an APR Performance carbon fiber rear wing, Schroth competition seats and belts, a full roll cage, a 3/16Ô aluminum safety alloy plate under the driver’s seat, 22 gallon ATL racing fuel cell, a Lifeline fire suppression system, Lexan windows with door slides, Momo steering wheel with quick disconnect, custom alloy dash and door panels, engine and transaxle coolers and the all-important Motec electronic management system. Also fitted with a quick-release functioning handbrake for those brave enough to use s/n 122781 for very spirited street use. Comes with fully functioning lights and a pair of ACAT Global (Advanced Clean Air Technologies) catalysts so that it can be road registered in some states.

This 550 GT racer would be the ultimate Ferrari club track day racer or simply look great in any collection! Priced well below the cost of building, testing and development into fully raceÔready condition. $119,500 USD or best offer.
