    Eric- I kept a small database of 575Ms only so I could use it to flesh out when changes occurred during 575M production. It has no color info and no owner info. Have not updated it in quite a while. Do not have anything similar for the 550. Not sure where Nathan got his info, but it could have been from F-Register.com or from JTRemlett.

    I do but not that good. I was mistaken. Looked at a 575 on the thread and confused it with the original OP post. Sorry.

    As an update to aggregate some info while I was thinking about Bianco cars....

    Seven 550's documented to be delivered in Bianco plus one barchetta plus the one in Russia which is not in Nathan's book/registry....plus I guess another Euro in Canada.

    1) 1997 Euro # 108369 originally Bianco Fuji changed to Grigio Titanio
    2) 1998 Euro # 110256
    3) 1998 Japan # 111380
    4) 1998 USA # 111391
    5) 2001 Euro # 124750
    6) 2001 Euro # 124758
    7) 2001 USA # 126807 Last 550; ex-Pharrell Williams car; FHP; allegedly owned by the Weather tech founder?

    Not in Nathan's book/registry...

    8) Russian Bianco is a 1999 Euro delivery car

    9) Canadian Bianco is allegedly a 1997 Euro car #109594 @tres55 might know that one.

    Someone in another thread said they were trying to buy the one in Russia. I wasn’t able to find it for sale online. I’m tempted if anyone has details.

    @Crocodon I had been DM'ing awhile back with @Gleb.T on that car. I'm not sure of its current status. That one has a lot of questions. I didn't post anything else on that one out of respect for Gleb.T since I wasn't sure if he was still pursuing it or not.

    Understood- wasn’t my intention to undermine anything in progress at all :)

    My wife has family in Russia, so doing a deal over there would be comparatively easy for me vs someone with no local knowledge.

    I would DM/conversation with him then.

    You might be uniquely positioned to chase that one.

    For a US based guy with all the unknowns I'm not sure the situation and economics made sense.

    I know of only 2 Bianco 550/575
    1. Bianca with red once owned by a celebrity.
    I can’t remember who. I know someone on Here will know
    2. Bianco/ Sabina SA manual. Holy grail car
    Once owned by Cobraownr. Car was spectacular.

    you are trying to fill a tall order
    Bianco in the 90’s and early 2000’s. Are unobtainable. Just ask Luke who had the nicest 355

    Bianco production for all Ferrari models. More popular in Europe than here. My old 365 GTB/4 was originally white before it became Giallo Fly and then chopped top Rosso Chiaro.

    I think they're Work VS KF wheels. Work is a great brand.

    But **** me, those wheels aren't a good look on the 550.
