Ferrari collectors may want to snap this up, as you’re unlikely to find a better example of the iconic 1980s supercar.
The iconic Ferrari Testorassa will forever be associated with its appearance in the 1980s TV show Miami Vice, but we feel that its connection is somewhat forced in this example up for sale. Photos of the red supercar show it parked in front of a Miami backdrop in homage to the TV car, but don’t be fooled: everyone knows that the Miami Vice Ferrari Testarossa was white. Still, this is an undeniably fine example of one of the most famous Ferraris ever, which is going up for sale at an upcoming RM Sothebys New York auction next month.
It’s virtually brand new and in immaculate condition, with a mere 585 miles on the clock that should make it attractive to Ferrari collectors. This 1989 example is presented in its original condition and is Ferrari Classiche certified. It last received a belt service at Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale in 2015 before it was acquired by the current owner and has never been driven since. Before that, a belt service and valve adjustment was performed in 2006. It also includes a set of owner’s manuals, a tool kit, and car cover. The Testarossa is powered by a flat-12 engine that sends 385 hp to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission.
When it left the factory, the Ferrari Testarossa could sprint from 0-62 mph in around five seconds before topping out at 180 mph. There’s no reserve price, but RM Sothebys estimates that this Testarossa will fetch between $250,000 and $325,000 when it goes under the hammer on December 6. Ferrari collectors may want to snap this up, because you’re unlikely to find a better example of the iconic 1980s supercar.
