"Goddamn is this good." - Matt Farah
It was one of the most iconic supercars of the late 80s and early 90s, alongside the Lamborghini Countach. Today, a lot of kids who grew up then now have the cash to buy their dream cars, instead of staring at posters pinned to their bedroom walls (hey, some of us adults still have car posters). Matt Farah is one of those kids, although he’s not the owner of this 1991 Ferrari Testarossa. He still gets to drive this wonderful Italian thing through LA County’s canyon roads and, uh, he’s like really smitten with it.
There are a few giggles and one final "Whooo!". He can’t help it, and probably neither could we if were also behind the wheel. With its 4.9-liter flat-12 engine, this Testarossa still sounds great and a new exhaust system definitely gives it that extra crackle.
Believe it or not, only a few years ago you could find a decent used example for around $40k, but not anymore. Those kids of the 80s and 90s have grown up and are living out their childhood dreams. Not only does the Testarossa drive beautifully, considering its width, but its many idiosyncrasies, while peculiar at first, somehow make sense. And to be honest (and we’re probably not alone on this), we’d prefer this Testarossa to many modern Ferraris. It’s that cool.
