I do not go that fast on the street anymore, a year without a license was enough, plus my insurance bills went way up for a while. Wait let me clarify that, I do not go very fast in the State of Colorado, as soon as I hit the state line I tend to exceed the speed limit by quite a bit, if the conditions are good for it. An out of state ticket is only money and does not go on my driving record, impacting my license or insurance. So you just have to decide on how much you want to spend. Aside from that the 550 and its apparent successor the 600 are fast, smooth, comfortable, quiet, handle superbly, and most importantly just a joy to drive, and in my opinion what a true SuperCar should be. Also it is nice to know that should the necessity arise you can do over 200mph. I just have to, in my mind at least, justify that necessity.
