stumbled acroos this site... it's got somw great video & some clips from bad boys II that features the car in some tire smokin action. the link is http://www.550ferrari.com/
does anyone have any other video links to share? thanks
Well it still was a good movie and all that dodging of the cars and debre. Well some skilled driver. I heard they used real cars for the crashes and the cars flying off the transporter. And for the inside shoots of the 575 and police cars they used some special truck with role bars with a cam on the front and they added the interiors with computers.
OK, you all may find me sad but: I had a look at a copy of the Bad Boys II car chase downloaded from YouTube as I was sure it was a 550. Interestingly, it IS a 550, but with 575 headlights!!
Attached are a couple of screen dumps that show clearly it is a 550 (see interior, the rims, and the nose section with fog lights) but also a shot where you can see the head lights clearly: those are 575.
I think Ferrari wanted to pass it off as a new 575 which was about to come out when the movie was released. I read somewhere on a forum it was a 1998 550.
BTW, I agree that the sound is not from a 550, except right at the end of the scene when he pulls up after a complete stop - that sounds remarkably like my car.
OK - Anorak Onno has spoken!
P.S. The 550 Ferrari site link doesn't work, anybody else have that problem?
