    550 and the Aprilia RSV1000R Factory (black lion) and a white RSV4, can't gush enough about them. I was supposed to be at California Superbike School today, x-mas gift from my bride. Postponed for obvious global pandemic reasons.

    So in our small town, the 550 does not really get out much, she likes to keep a low profile.

    This is yesterday, just a 30 min run to keep her and I in good health.

    I have the cleanest rims in town. His little hands are very useful for keeping the rims clean and shiny.

    Your 550 will last a good long time if you treat it right, which I know you are. :)

    Baby Blue, huh? My technician named my 550 Blue Thunder after I installed straight center pipes and Tubi (2nd generation) mufflers. He even stamped out an ID plate for my car...

    After scrolling through about 20 pages, I will say the 550 and 456 have aged very well as classic GT cars. My first Ferrari was a 1995 gated 456GT (Canna di Fucile/Tan) and a 2000 550 (Rosso Corsa/tan) was my second. Great memories.

    They sure have. It amazes me that they have become as inexpensive as they are currently. I do believe based on historical depreciation values of other Ferraris to the present value they are today that these era v12's will more then likely follow a similar pattern.

    They for sure are aged well beauties when you see them on the road, and in all honesty I tend to like the classic lines of the older models vs Most (not all) of the newer ones. My 456m is still at the shop since the day I took delivery few weeks ago, I cant wait to be able to get it back and go for a nice drive.

    That is funny. I ALSO took delivery of a 19k mike 456M a few weeks back and MINE has been tied up at the shop for just as long.

    Damn front seat fuse/short/electrical issue they cannot solve.

    Sorry, misunderstanding - I meant what is the yellow car? Some sort of Bugatti lookalike?

    It had a Bugatti badge on the grill. I am not sure of it is a Bugatti or not.

    Nice, well once they are out of the shop we get to enjoy them. Did you happen to get your 456m from a dealer in NJ?
