    I cant see results but what did the Red 575 they had up for auction get there and what was the mileage? I remember seeing it on the list. I have a 2002 Red 575 so just curious

    The owner ordered his cars from Ferrari to be unique. The tdF looked rather tame by his standards.
    He was not impressed by the 'red on tan' crowd who seemed to have a distinct lack of imagination. He has bought more than 60 models from Ferrari so the idea of selling some doesn't seem particularly strange...

    being unique on the outside is understandable. doing a yellow interior not so much

    I live in Ft. Lauderdale and I remember when he bought a few of these cars. When you see them in person they are quite out standing. You would think the yellow or white interior is way to much, but it really was quite nice.

    It did not reach the reserve. The high bid was $130,000. The description didn’t list the current mileage but mentioned that the last service was done in March 2016 when it had 9,731 miles.

    This I don't get. If I had a one of a kind Chevette does it make it valuable...
    Yeah they had One to One for the 599, I'll never buy just cause its Rare, there are so many other nice Ferrari's out there. The white isn't bad, but that Yellow... ughhh

    All I could find on the sale of the yellow car was the new owner was named Ronald or something like that.

    I saw both of these in 2010 when he brought them to the Celebration Festival car show. The yellow did not look good at all in person, but was definitely unique. The white one looked nice.

    I like the yellow car. The interior would have me constantly in a buoyant mood. :)
