The 550/575 was a Ferrari that IMO got better with age.

Good thread Seize!!

I like 599's headlight a lot better!

This one was taken outside my office.

A lot of the styling cues from my car (C6 Corvette) were 'borrowed' from this car

I saw a black 575 with some chrome HRE rims at a local beach parked in front of a pretty high-end restaurant. Talk about presence.

Thats a 612. And one just flew by me today!! Engine sounds so sweet!!

The 612 is the only current Ferrari I like. The 575 is just awesome!!

He has got to be hitting that curb. Even my LS bottoms out on those things.

Nice! I like the black one. This car looks much better than the 599 and
the F430 to me.

This is by far one of the better Ferraris and is timeless and maybe I could get one for a good price as my entry to the marinello family!

I saw a black one with no HRE rims in front of a chain restaurant similar to Denny's. I kid you not. Talk about flexibility.
