Chassis: 2102
Built early in 2003, this is the first of 550 GTC prototypes. Tagged 2102, it is also the first Ferrari to revive the even chassis number tradition for factory competition cars since the 312 PB of the early 1970s. Loaned to the French JMB team, it was first raced at the Donington round of the 2003 FIA GT Championship. Starting 14th, Fabio Babini and Philipp Peter finished 18th. Joined by Boris Derichebourg, Babini and Peter led the Spa 24 Hours a month later but eventually retired with an engine issues. Following unsuccessful outings at Anderstorp and Oschersleben, it was replaced by the new 575 GTC.

Placed in storage, it was eventually acquired by Italian racer Piero Nappi in 2005. He campaigned the car with considerable success in the Italian Hill Climb Championship, winning the GTM class championship in 2005, 2006 and 2014. Nappi finally retired the 550 GTC prototype from contemporary racing in 2016 after scoring 30 class wins. In March of 2016, the engine was rebuilt and it was sold to an English enthusiast in 2017. He had the car recommissioned and returned to the 2003 Spa 24 Hours livery. In 2018, the car was campaigned in the Global Endurance Legends rounds during the Le Mans Classic and Dix Mille Tours.

In March of 2021, it was fully Ferrari Classiche certified and the following year, it was consigned to the RM Sotheby's Paris Sale.
