The iconic white Miami Vice Ferrari Testarossa first came up for sale on eBay in December 2014, then again in March 2015. Then it ended up at two Mecum auctions – one held in August 2015, and one in January 2016. Somehow, the car can’t seem to find a home. It’s set to be up for auction again at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction next month.
Barrett-Jackson has not detailed this particular Testarossa’s prior sales history, but the VIN number on the auction house’s site matches the previous eBay listings. Even as one of the most iconic Ferrari’s around the climbing value of the Testarossa, the original asking price of $1.75 million has perhaps scared buyers off.
The car has been authenticated by both Ferrari North America and Ferrari Classiche, and comes with all sorts documents from Miami Vice’s production company, Universal Studios. It’s been given an $8000 engine-out service, and only done 16,000 miles, but a 1986 Testarossa in Concours-quality condition is estimated to be worth only $136, 000. We will have to wait and see what the car fetches at auction this time.
