  • Literally within the last couple of days was thinking "why aren't 550s more popular still?' Id honestly much rather have one of these over the modern front engine V12 Ferraris. Same with the 355, I'd rock either of these all day every day with a huge smile. The 550 was the understated beauty of Ferrari, the Ferrari that almost didn't look like a Ferrari but was still beautiful and had all the presence needed. Love it.

  • Hammond .. probably the most annoying, unfunny (tries hard , fails miserably) presenter on tv, why would the fact he previously owned the 550 be any asset in its value or reason to buy? Clarkson should it of been his....different class 👍

  • He sold it to pay 6 months rent, jesus how much was he paying for rent, 60k ? Renting high end property long term is such a way to throw away money. Better to buy a house then pay 120k a year on rent lol. Anyways if you got the money then all power to you. He probably pulls in a million + per year.

  • This has to be my favorite DRIVETRIBE episode yet. I love the honest nostalgia; I think everyone has that one car they wish they could have back. Still remember all the nights I've spent with my buddies just talking about our old beasts. I really hope Hammond ended up getting that one back, and made that call. OH OH OH!! Please make this a series, that would be great between the three of you. One guy, one car per show, maybe once a quarter? :))

  • Ha! At 16:10, when Richard says, "It's a pretty car... Preeety caaar..." he's quoting from The Italian Job. It's the moment when Michael Caine is stopped by the slick Italian dudes in the mountains. He's driving an Aston Martin. (Look away now, car lovers...) Caine and the Italian gang boss exchange threats. The boss considers his response as he walks around the Aston, apparently admiring its gorgeous lines. "Hmm. Preeety caaar..." Then he signals for his pet bulldozer to push it off the road and into a ravine. BOOM. It dies a horrible death. Oh, the pain...
