    I just saw the movie Bad Boys II last night over a friends house and was looking forward to the Ferrari chase seen.

    It lost all credibility when I noticed the sounds dubbed in were from a 355....

    totally bummed me out and it wasnt believable from there. However, after the chase seen, the sound was from a v12 when they were tooling around slowly.

    I heard that 2 weeks prior to shooting the car scenes, they still didn't know what type of car they were going to use, so the director said use the 550/575 cause he owns one.
    They may have had trouble getting enough 575's. Well spotted by the way, I didn't notice.

    i remember someone bringing this up before. i did a little search but couldn't find the thread, it must have been on the old board. anyway, the the 550 they used was the directors and after ferrari heard about it they gave them the 575. which is why there really are two different cars there. i can't remember if there was any mention of the sound of the car though.

    i did hear that martin lawrence dented the 550 off screen though.

    Let me get this straight: The sound dubbing (routinely done for all kinds of things, especially weapons) made it incredible to you? The fact that they're dumping cars onto the highway, shoot gazillions of rounds without ever hitting the Ferrari and crashing all over the place with the Ferrari not getting mangled up once wasn't the problem?

    Ahem, it's a movie, hello!

    I noticed this also when my son and I were watching it
    the other night.
    I wonder if the director used his 550 so he could right
    it off as an expense for the movie?

    The story I heard was, that it was supposed to be a P car (like in the first Bad Boys film), but Porsche didn't deliver the cars on time. So the director decided to use his own Ferrari in stead to get going with the shoot. They asked then FNA and promptly a couple days later were presented with matching color 575. That's why both cars are used.

    Also did anyone catch, that the cars had two different color brake calipers. ie: two different cars. These guys really need to get their sh*t together. When they are advertising a movie with these types of cars they must know that car guys will watch the movie and pick out any irregularity they can find.
