Examples of the centre console mounted WSR plaques appear in the below listings. 2B Consulting Automotive :: 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello World Speed Record Historics at Brooklands - Specialist Classic and Sports Car Auctioneers - REF 32 2000 Ferrari 550 World Speed Record Edition
On the second listing, we see the full plaque and it appears as "WORLD SPEED RECORDS". Curious that it wasn't numbered in any way.
Also curious to me are some of the details in the "Vehicle Overview" in that 2B Consulting listing... although they appear to have been cribbed from comments posted on FerrariChat in 2007... 550 World Speed Recoord - FerrariChat.com
..by a former owner [Anjum].
· stiffer shock absorbers [Wrong. Presumably referring to the FHP suspension ECU from the 550 FHP kit (the only difference between the 550 and 575M FHP kits)]
· helicoidal springs [Aren't they all? Presumably referring to the FHP kit springs]
No reference to the FHP rear sway bar or brake pads...
· modified steering [this appears to refer to the steering ECU from the FHP kit]
· an infra-red tyre temperature control system [was this just on the Marysville car?]
· an automatic fire extinguisher [was this just on the Marysville car? I can't see one in the passenger footwell in the above examples but the photos aren't exhaustive.]
· rapid refuelling system [presumably just on the Marysville car!
Elsewhere on that 2007 thread was a reference to a feature in the 2/99 edition of Car and Driver and the alleged existence of a second fuel tank in the trunk [7.9 US Gallons / (30L)] that featured a dry-break...
Seems rather small in capacity but possibly big enough (and certainly faster to fill with the corresponding fuel rig) to secure some of those records!
· an additional electronic pump to potentially over come power-steering or brake servo failure [again, presumably just on the Marysville car? Was this a back-up system (unlikely) or perhaps a replacement race-specification system??]
Without the race car fuel rig, power steering and hydraulics the 33(?) WSR cars should perhaps be more accurately described as 'commemorative editions' rather than true replicas and on that basis, the 'Schumacher edition' cars marketed in some territories might actually be a truer 'replica' of one of the cars that he was associated with!
