    Yesterday, I've beaten a 550 with my 355. Idiot could not even keep up with me. Well there was a little traffic, not much. 550 is not that much faster then the 355 period. The guy was trying so hard it was kind of funny I think. My buddy took some pics. I'll post them later. You should have seen this guys face when he got whooped. He deserved it I tell you. Acted like he was Shumi and thought he was driving an F1 car or something. 550 seem to heavy and not like an exotic at speed behind me.

    I don't think it was you doody so what is your problem. It was a red 550 in south Fl.

    Don't get offended just because you have one. I am telling you they are not much faster the 355.

    550 : 0 -60 is 4.4 vs. 355: 0 -60 4.6
    550: 1/4mi. 12.6 vs. 13.0 sec.
    Top speed 550:199mph. vs. 355:185mph.
    Ok there is a good bit difference in the top speed but please By the time I went up to 150 he was way behind still trying to get that heavy thing out of traffic. Lets face it maybe less then 10% of F cars ever reach their top speed.
    I had it up to 180+ less then 10 times. I had my 355 for 2 years now.

    I guess Ferrari figured out a while back that more people who have money are older gray haired people. Doctors, lawyers, restaurant owners. So it was wise to built cars with a lot of grunt but they knew not alot of these people would even push it hard in real life. That is why the 355 will kick the 550 b#tt.
    The 612 proves my theory I think. Another car with alot of Hp. but no ones is gonna push it and it'll get whooped by the 360 and the 355.

    You tell me doody in real life race which would you take. 355 is not only better thru traffic it even looks faster.

    Power is not everything. I have supercharged Z06 that will eat your 550 easily. But when it comes down to it the 355 will be my choice to drive fast in real life road.

    575 Mike I just moved to Atlanta about few weeks ago. If you want you can come down here and I will take you for a ride. Even better bring your 575 for a whooping.

    What you need to ask Herr Doody is which car he kept and which one he sold. The garage pic is an old one....

    That means nothing. If I had gray hair and was 46 years old I would perhaps keep the 550 myself. But that does not change the facts.

    Don't get me wrong I think it's an OK car. Really mean looking front, sad from the side and rear. But it's no exotic. I am sorry.
    Look at the Ferrari line up
    575 a GT car old mans car
    612 a 2+2 old mans car
    at least they have the 360 that seems like an exotic
    and the ENZO one word superb.

    I don't believe that thing about your age. If I was 46 and I had the money to buy my first Ferrari, I would go for the one I like and the car that goes with my age.

    I'm young, and I'd like a GT. It wouldn't be my only fast car, though.

    You just might. I wonder which car is faster? Actually, the funny thing is I do not own a 575 or 550, I just want to own one some day. I am taking delivery of a 360 Modena Spider next week from Rick Mancuso in Lake Forest. I love F355s!! I had a Fiorano Spider. Great great car . . . but so is the 550.
