Firstly, I do like that 550 combo especially the interior with its different textures. There's a fair bit of cow inside a Maranello when it has the full leather trim options so its nice to break it up. When I see interiors like this I always think that someone put some real thought into it as there were no configurators back then and you were basically choosing off swatches and sample panels. I've seen many that didn't work so well.
As far as horses for courses go, so to speak, outside the benchmark Rosso/Creama, I think in Europe there are far more dark exterior colours like TdF, Nero, Grigio Silverstone etc which naturally prompt lighter interiors. I notice in hotter climates like Australia there are much less dark colours and much more light colours like Silvers and whites plus bright colours as well. I think this is the assumption (not sure if its right but sort of makes sense) that they are more reflective of heat than the darker colours that would be more absorbing of heat. I Definately know I wouldn't go for Nero exterior or interior in Aus.
The US is more eclectic I think as it gets such climate variations, So it's hard to pin down what would be a typically American Fcar.....but it's an interesting conversation.
