    Just read about the special road version of the 550/575 to celebrate the Le mans, Its a pic you may have seen before, its the red one with the LARGE rear table spoiler on the rear and with carbon fiber front splitters and other apendages, the interea will also be sparce,some on here would say "ricer", they say they will make very few for the road. To get to my point, i can only imagine what a responce a 550 would get it an owner was to put on that bloody great spoiler on there 550,I can imagine some saying "if the factory dont fit it it dont look right, but just becourse the factory is going to fit it along with other so called "ricer" bits and made into a ferrari special, it may be reseved with open arms. Has any one else seen the pics and what do you think of it?

    I do like that Twin Turbo... would love to see it in a video clip. Or own it. Video would have to do for a while though.

    Here's a blue, midnight blue, BR Green and a dark grey - these were as dark as I could get this picture. (I just looked on a different computer, and on some monitors the whole front end might be too dark)

    I think if it serves a purpose then there is a point to having it on there. I like the Prodrive 550s. They're great cars, and they look awesome. The Koenig car doesn't do it for me. The spoiler doesn't look right. I know people will say it's the same thing, but it's not really. If it's all show no go, then I wouldn't bother, but the Prodrive cars have proven otherwise.

    Exactly!

    Also the Prodrive cars are not just a spoiler added to a 550, there are HUGE changes to the cars. If Ferrari bought out a model like that, then that would be heaps cool ... but they won't they will simply add a badge or something to the standard 550 barge ;)
