It will go up for a ridiculous amount but that doesn’t mean that you cannot be its new owner, that is if you can afford it, of course.
The Miami Vice Ferrari Testarossa is getting ready to go under the hammer. The model in question will be offered for sale by Mecum Auctions and it has been placed in storage between 1990 and 2015, after the show has ended. Last year, it has been listed on eBay for 1.75 million USD and its original color was black but director Michael Mann has decided to paint it white in order to get some better visibility shots in the night scenes.
Some of the goodies found on it include the air conditioning, the cruise control, the power seats, power locks, power windows, the beige leather interior and a Momo steering wheel. We should also mention one of the first Motorola cellphone models, which has been mounted on a hands-free module. This particular supercar has travelled for 25,949 km (16,124 miles) and it will try and find a new owner at Monterey, between the 13th and the 15th of August. The Testarossa has been put together between 1984 and 1991 and it came in a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, with a two-door coupe body style. The supercar was making use of a 4.9 liter flat-12 engine, capable of putting down a total output of 390 HP (291 kW) and 490 Nm (361 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration took 5.3 seconds and top speed stood at 290 km/h (180 mph).
