The Ferrari 575M Maranello is a two-seat grand tour sports car and, thanks to its technology and performance, represents the very pinnacle of the Ferrari front-engined sports berlinetta concept. With a 5.7 l V12 engine it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h within 4.2 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 325 km/h. The excellent styling design made it the 2003 winner for Most Beautiful Sports Car in the world!
The car reproduced by Hot Wheels EliteTM appeared in the 2003 blockbuster movie Bad Boys II directed by Michael Bay and featuring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. As all the 1:18th Hot Wheels EliteTM models, the replica features opening doors, trunk and hood to reveal a fully detailed engine and interiors; working wheels; moving steering wheel; seat belts; real rubber tires and photo-etched parts.
The 575M Maranello is highlighted in the film when Will Smith's character flings the Ferrari through scenes of chaos as a giant car carrier sheds its load at 70 mph, and a succession of vehicles flip, spin, roll and smash onto the highway creating a series of mobile obstacles through which the Ferrari ultimately emerges unscathed!
