    Do you know what's different between the GTC Handling pack and the Fiorano Handling Package?

    Oh, and that rear badge is terrible.

    The 575M badge on the back? It's been somewhat debated but the general belief is that it spoils the integrity of the rear, makes it look lopsided, etc.

    I agree that it does not look good. I think a badge looks good on a challenge grille, or on a testarosa or something, but not on the 550/575.

    Lets see the Fiorano handling package involves the braking system, suspension and the steering system. Also the 575M FHP uses Pagid brake pads.
    Anyway here's something interesting I have in my favorites. Take a look..

    As for the GTC handling package...
    -You have carbon-ceramic brake discs like on the Enzo and the 360 CS.
    -You have special springs and anti-roll bars, lowered ride height, upgraded power steering, with additional advances in electronic suspension control.
    -Exhaust system with an even deeper, characteristic rumble
    -Coloured brake callipers featuring the 'Brembo Carbon Ceramic' logo.
    -Modular 19" wheels fitted with special Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres (255/35 ZR19 front and 305/30 ZR 19 rear)

    IMO the rear badge will differentiate the difference between 550 and 575M, just by looking at it from the rear view of the car.

    Having a red car is not too bad at all,

    Yeah I think thats the main reason why they decided to put the 575M rear badge. Maybe many people wanted that..
