Gday lads,

just wondering if the 550 from the first release year to the latest changed much. the first being 1996??? and last 2002????? i am wondering if there are any differances between years and if one is better than another. Does this also apply to other models eg: is a 99 360 and a 2001 360 EXACTLY the same?????

reasons for asking is the huge price variance for the 550 years. im still looking for a 355 but would easily love to own a 550.

two for comparison

1- 550...grigorio titanium :green: ....1997 model....$280,000......12,000km
2- 550...grigorio titanium :green: ....2001 model....$399,000.......1400km

Almost $120k more for the newer models, is this justified?????????????

Forget barchetta used one in rossa corsa for $600,000 :eek:ha: :nuts:


oh and figures are in australian dollars. therefore both cars RHD.

Cheers
-Pete

yeh the reason i ask is i cannot for the life of me find anything on the internet to help me out.

hope you guys can help me out. my father has after long debate decided to allow me to find him a 550 as a retirement present from himself--->> definately not me. my company chews my money thats why the 355 for me. see i look at it if i find one he can afford then i get to reap the rewards also. :green:

Cheers
-Pete

I do not know about Australia but here in California the horsepower of the 550 dropped in 1999 from 485 to 472. Smog requirements I think.

Not that it helps, but I know the 1999's are a hell of a lot easier to get Americanized than the 2000+. To bring a car over from Europe and get it legal in the US will run you anywhere from $15-25,000 USD.

Yeah, this would make the '99 even more attractive. Perhaps the 2000+ are more in the US due to the factory having to get them legal before shipping them.

But I really don't know and am probably just rambling :p
