    Having been watching Le Mans over the past few hours, its struck me that the Prodrive 550 is one of the most beautiful modern race cars.

    The wide-body makes it look much more agressive than the standard car, along with the deeper side vents and the hugely OTT rear wing.

    I honestly wish Ferrari would consider a limited run street version, but I suppose Maranello is more than happy with the new Enzo.

    Well, they clawed back 5 of their 15 lap deficit in the final hour of the race to finish ten laps behind the Prodrive 550. Although that was more to do with Prodrive bringing the car in for about 25minutes whilst they checked it over to make sure nothing was going to fall off in the last 30minutes.

    Well the Prodrive might not have done so well if the vette's were running perfectly. Murphy's law. Anything can happen.

    Decent sized pics of the 550 are really hard to find for some reason. All the promotional ones like those above are all relatively small in size.
