    Waste of a 550. Someone should be hung, drawn and quartered.

    But what is it? I was there to see another car and did not put too much time to look at it.

    Ughh! For some reason it reminds me of the 1969 365gt NART Spiders that Chinetti Jr. created.

    Just awful.

    From a practical perspective, it’s pretty clear where the pimp sits. Right there behind that fabulous AutoZone wheel. But where do his girls ride? I call this very impractical.

    Yes, I searched it and it is a Swiss company that were making the «custom» editions and cars. Wonder if they used a perfect condition 550 and stole all the parts or if they had a damaged one that they took the parts off of. Something for the registry to note in the records...!

    Like all others, a waste of a 550.... On the upside there is a very nice Mercedes 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II standing right next to it.

    Yes but the other is a fun baked goods rapid delivery system which does tie into Ferrari history at least.

    I must say that cover obscuring access to the gated shifter is a touch of genius. I can picture it now...


    ...you're 47 years old, you've worked hard all your life, and you've finally got some disposable income to really splurge on something nice for yourself. Something really nice. A sportscar. A Ferrari. Not just any Ferrari... something rare - unique, even. You walk into the dealership and you see it.

    "Oh my God."

    You don't know if the words actually left your lips or died in your throat, but your mouth hangs agape. Aghast? No, that's just the shock talking. Talking? Oh, a salesman is talking at you. It sounds like he's under water. You focus your mind.

    "...-cognized you as a gentleman of taste. This is the Ferrari Sbarro Tornado SB1, a 1-of-1. It doesn't get any better than this beauty."

    He pulls open the driver's door and you're ushered inside. More talking. What's going on? The next 45 minutes is something of a blur. Did you sign something? You vaguely recall talking to your bank manager. Hmm.

    Keys? Oh, you're in the car again. You're driving it outside. The salesman is watching. He high fives his colleagues.

    You pull out onto the road and it starts to dawn on you that you might have bought this thing. It's difficult change gear. Hmm.

    A Ferrari 550 Maranello pulls up next to you at the traffic light. Wow, it's pretty. But... what is...? It's your own reflection staring back at you from its gleaming paintwork.

    "Oh my God."

    You definitely said it out loud that time. People are staring. You've got to get out of here.

    You row awkwardly through the gears as best as you can, gathering more more speed. It's still a Ferrari V12. You just about get it into 5th and the world is a blur, whipping past you to the soundtrack of screaming Italian horses...

    The windscreen doesn't work. A bee is in your left eye socket. This is a nightmare, you have to wake up. You reach for the stick, eyes streaming tears, and you haul back hard to slam it into 6th. That blasted cover cut you. You hold up your hand to examine it with your remaining good eye and observe blood spurting profusely from your open wrist.

    The color drains from the world, the sounds fade away, and the light dims to black. Ahh, sweet oblivion.​


    Yep. They really thought that feature through. Genius.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Or you’re a stinking rich guy not interested in cars but it just happened that you got into the dealership and there it was!! With a 50.000 euro discount according tho the salesman. Smokin’ deal. A new toy in life..... And one year later you sell it to your other friend who is also not into cars for a decent amount of money. Very hard to tell what this thing is worth.
