Prepared by the UT, Maisto and Bburago.
I think that was the most beautiful UT, the Maisto is the worst ...

HW also did the 550...though I agree, the UT is the best.

Actually UT , Bburago and Maisto made the 550. Hotwheels just bought the Bburago dies and retooled them.
The UT model looks the best, just because it was best executed assembly and finish wise. If you strip all three models and redo them, you will be very surprised.
Also it is good to note that the red 550 from UT is the one sought after by collectors, but the silver is actually the rare one as I believe only 5000 of them were made.
Proportions wise the most accurate one is the Bburago.
