550 & 575 Owners List

Thought it would be a good idea to make a list of 550/575 owners on Ferrarilife

Please post up a picture of your 550/575 and some info about it. It's up to you what info you want to provide but an example would be:

Example:
Model: 550
Year: 1998
Country: Belgium
Steering: LHD
Chassis number: 104952
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Blanco


In order to keep the thread on topic, please only post once in this thread with all the info you would like to provide on your 550/575.

Thanks.

Congrats, Boxer! Back to Maranellos, I see. Fantastic looking example, I must say, and a rare manual to boot (but then I would not have expected you to get an F1). Enjoy!

Many thanks. Just starting to bond with it. This has been a long search but very worth while in the end.

Congrats on your new, exquisite acquisition, Boxer. Excellent choices. Now you can enjoy the opulence and "leisurely" drive (relative to others, of course). Without a doubt, an elegant stance. w/ smiles Jimmy

Phewww, that's one sharp looking machine... Absolutely stunning colour combination, both the grey exterior and the off-white interior. Congratulations are in order, Sir!

Wow Boxer, looking good.

You should now be able to provide a serious report on the 550 vs 575FHP handling comparison (there should not be any doubts about the engine performance differences).

I hope you enjoy it in good health.

For the Maranello Owners list

Heres mine:-

Model: 550 Maranello
Year: 01 Jan 1998
Country: UK. Originally delivered to Graypaul, Loughborough ( before they moved to Nottingham). Spent its life in Cornwall until I rescued it back to the Midlands.
Steering: RHD
Chassis number: 110696
Ferrari colour: Rosso Corsa
Interior colour: Creama w Red stitching, Burgundy carpets
Mileage: 30,064 miles - 29 Nov 2009
Options: CarbonF seats

Some pics after detailing in preparation for winter hibernation. FL member Dream-Clean does the 430 professionally. I do the 550 ( and my other non Fcars) as an enthusiastic, well tutored, amateur.

Boxers Maranello - another great addition to an already superb stable.

Lovely pair! (no pun intended). As to the detailing: Looks to me like you're ready to move from the amateur status to pro ranks...

Congratulations on tracking down a magnificent 575M manual, Boxer. I look forward to driving and ownership comparisons with your previous 550 as well as back to back driving impressions with your Daytona. Something very special about the front-engined V12 Ferrari's.
