"The 550 Le Mans Limited Edition was built to commemorate the astounding Ferrari 550 Maranello victory at the 2003 Le Mans 24 Hour race. The goal was to build a road car that resembled the race car to as large an extent as possible
The idea and concept of the car came from Frédéric Dor, owner of Care Racing who developed the Ferrari 550 Maranello that won the GTS class in the 2003 Le Mans. The car was built in conjunction with esmotorsport in the UK.
Hailed in the motor press as one of the most exciting super cars of the year, only four were ever built. The car being auctioned is the first one built and the car that was featured in all the news articles.
The car was the lead car in the 2005 Gumball 3000 rally where it was driven by Gumball founder Maximillion Cooper. For the race, the car was dressed up in orange as the General Lee car from the movie The Dukes of Hazzard."
Ok, so this car isn't even 'real'. If it were a genuine Prodrive built car I'd say go for it, but it's apparently not. I wouldn't even drive a Dodge Charger in that color and paint scheme; if you choose to buy it then stay away from ethnic neighborhoods until you get her resprayed. :lol:
