Pete Townshend, famously cranky guitarist of The Who, has put his '99 Ferrari 550 Maranello up for sale. Known for smashing up his gear, our theory is that Pete only continues that anti-authoritarian gesture for show, and he doesn't break the good stuff. We've seen him break lots of Stratocasters, but precious few Les Pauls (though he does seem to have some animosity toward the SG, too). This Ferrari is definitely the good stuff, and it appears to be in great shape. The odometer has counted off 29,000 clicks, and the brown leather seats have likely taken on a nice patina. Today's exchange rate sets the price at $98,239.30. As used Maranello's go, that's on par with what the market seems to be bearing. Maybe as part of the purchase, you could have Pete show you how to windmill as you bash the shifter through its gated path.

      Who are the greatest rock band of all time. I wish John Entwistle and Keith Moon were still alive.

      It`s nice to see a ferrari in a different color besides red or black. Good looking car!

      Purchasers should figure on spending $10k to $20k annually on maintenance as well, according to Sports Car Market: http://www.sportscarmarket.com/articles/archives/939

      The Maranello suffers from the 650Ci syndrome: it's a car everyone dogs on. Like the BMW, I has a fondness for this car even if no one else does.
