Great looking 550. And gotta love it's a manual. Someone else can probably chime in here, but is that what good 550 models are being traded these days?

That's not accurate. The car in the OPs link is likely TdF blue.

Quite a few blues available in 1999. Here is PPG's official list with codes. I do not have leather colors for 1999, but that interior looks lighter than Crema, but may not be.

Surprising that 550s are now on par with 360s, for the money I think they're the most Ferrari you can get.

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

I almost want to buy one to put aside.

I love those colors.

What's the difference between crema and sabbia (sp?)

I have regretted often, but repented never. Is this a good thing? -Enzo Ferrari

Scott- Here is a comparison. Sabbia means sand and I think you know what Crema means. The top image is a little more color true.

anyone know this 550

Crema is no longer what it once was. I looked at a TDF blue with Crema interior and was aghast at how white it was. I had a 77 308GTb with a Crema that was more like buttermilk in the 80s. The 550 I looked at was listed as Crema but was almost a hard white in color.
