 the two drivers, they were not south americans...  
they came from Guatemala, they were Central americans, Jose Herrarte born in Guatemala and Jaroslav Juhan born in Czech Republic but he was Guatemalan citizen (he is still alive and lives in Geneve, Herrarte died in the late 70 s), the sponsor you can see in front of herrarte´s 550: "CAMINOS" it was the ancient Office of Highways from guatemalan government.

This is a very beautiful automobile. It was very successful on the track, and, as Steven said, they are almost impossibly expensive. They are however in the game Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed. They are a very nice car, and although I will never own one, I am in awe of this great car.
These 550's are collector items. If you not filthy rich, forget about buying one. But their is hope. Beck and Vintage Spyder of California has excellent reproductions. This is my all time favorite sport car. It's just simple.
