The car is probably a replica. Real 550's are million dollar cars and judging by the other cars around it is not the venue for the real deal. The replicas however are usually quite wonderful in their own right. James Dean was killed when a car, large American car of the 50's, failed to see him at an intersection. There is a marker at the sight in California where it happened. Any how, love my X1 as well, it is no doubt an acquired taste that if you are of that type other cameras don't do the same things. There is always a compromise... Except maybe in the US Congress...
