    Beautiful colors and spec...GLWS. By far the best looking blue interior I've ever seen on a Maranello.

    Just a quick note about how amazing this car is in person. Late last year Stephane came to my home for an afternoon party and brought this 550. I couldn’t believe the condition and color of this car. I spent half of the party talking to Stephane and learning about the 550 model. I immediately started looking for a 550 for myself as his car was so inspiring. I ended up buying the 550 that E_Man was selling. Stephane helped me with the purchase as his knowledge of this model was very helpful. So if anyone is even slightly thinking of purchasing a 550 you would be hard pressed to find a better car or owner...

    Wow, amazing spec! That interior is gorgeous!

    Everyone has different circumstances and motivations for selling, but I would also second the suggestion to reconsider selling. I’m learning that lesson vicariously as my 550 is a pretty special spec and being in touch with past owners of my car, the seller’s remorse is quite palpable. I feel for them, but at the same time I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to enjoy my beautiful 550.

    Either way you go, I wish you GLWS, this is a unicorn indeed!

    I have a tdf with blue interior, mine is.....well questionable, but yours is what I think the previous owner had in mind when reupholstering the interior.
