Because cars, especially Ferraris, are meant to be driven.
It's clearly not something you see every day, let alone in the Sahara Desert: a Ferrari Testarossa, one of the greatest and most iconic supercars of the 1980s. But ponder this: say if you did own one would you be willing to drive it on unpaved roads and other harsh conditions? Would you even be willing to put so many miles on such an expensive to maintain Ferrari? Apparently Evo magazine founder Harry Metcalfe decided, "hey, why the hell not." Here's what he did: he took a road trip from the UK to the Sahara Desert in his 1987 Testarossa.
For the record, he took a boat from the UK down to northern Spain, where he journeyed directly south to Morocco, from there to the Sahara. He had to dodge potential land mines and several other treacherous road conditions, but this might just be the ultimate Testarossa road trip ever. The video is nearly 30 minutes long but very much worth your time.
