    The most important thing in judging a car is where it is being driven. Driving a car in downtown London is different then cruising on a road in South America.

    I drive the greatest roadways on the planet Earth, the Southern California Freeways. My 550 has never lost but to safety. It eats Porsche for brunch. I have never seen a Mercedes or BMW to kick butt of a Porsche.

    Never drive less than a 12 cylinders.

    Dino pics are always welcome, thanks.

    I really like the color on the interior of that 550. Is that some sort of grey? The quilted rear shelf is always very classy.

    Nice 550, but I think chrome wheels cheapen the look of the car.

    I told my cousin to keep it stock. He didn't listen. Replaced them with 19" HRE rims ($8K) and almost threw away the stock rims until I retrieved them and now I keeping them for him. Beautiful car though, 2002 Titanum/ Grey daytona leather seats w/ leather quilted stiching rear self. The car have 1400 mi. with Tubi.

    Mph. My 308 is a little modify. It can top about 255 Km/h. And my Lotus is a lot modify to top 300 Km/h. Driving at that speed is so great. The wind noise rushing through the window is so load and make it so excited. If you have the supercar and have fun with the 0-60 acceleration alone, that is about 30% of its greatness...

  19. Love the house and the 550 on HRE's I think in that application the HRE's look great even though I dont typically care for HRE wheels on Ferrari. Gorgous house to.

    Yes. That is one thing we don't have. The twisty road. But then, again the twisty road give you the go-cart like driving. The super highway give you the top speed, formula one like...
