550 maranello Calipers

Hi guys,
Got a 550 on site, the calipers are currently yellow but car is red... apparently they need to be red or black but is there anyway of confirming what one is original. Thanks in advance

Marty,
Welcome to the forum.
The window sticker would tell you if the car was ordered with colored calipers, but unfortunately not which color
I’m not sure the build sheet would tell you more either.
A long shot would be the original dealer that sold the car.
Unless they’ve obviously been repainted, they could very well have been yellow originally.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Matty- If your local dealer can print a build sheet for her from MODIS, it will tell you whether optional colored calipers were ordered and what color. Standard was black, and at some point red, silver/aluminum, gold, and yellow were all optional.

Yellow calipers are fine and I have them on my Rosso Corsa 575M. Unless you do not like the color, I would not worry about it unless she is going to be entered in a concourse and yellow was not available the year she was manufactured.
