I saw the gaps in the panel lines and a few other things and thought model but the valve stems on the wheels say real. I can't imagine a 550 spyder with gaposis of the panels like that. I vote model.

Good one, Harry. The one puzzling bit is that there's no spyder script on the upper front fender, which is present on the high-end models I know of, and most 1:1 survivors. But I agree with Andrew on the panel gap, plus a couple of other observations. Model.

I haven't given up guessing - yet - so this time around I'm guesing MODEL for the reasons others have already given.
Personally, I think the countertop is marble, but at first I took it for granite too! :P
