For $3,300, what the truck?

The Testarossa was not Ferrari's finest hour, but that doesn't mean custom pickup truck builders should be barred from emulating its cheese-grater appearance. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Nissan is a fine example, but does its price grate on you? » 4/06/11 8:00am 4/06/11 8:00am

Make a Fat Redhead Your Cruel Mistress for $42,500

The Testarossa, once the wild-hair of Maranello's lineup, has become one of the most affordable ways to join the 12-cylinder Ferrari club. But with today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe '87, would that club beat the crap out of you? » 5/05/10 8:00am 5/05/10 8:00am

Backyard Ferrari Of The Day: Fierrari 512 Testarossa

An interesting difference between Backyard Lambos and Backyard Ferraris is that eBay apparently won't let you use the word "Ferrari" when you're trying to sell your Fauxrrari. That's why the vehicle we're looking at today is actually a "512 tr FERR@RI" replica. » 12/09/08 4:00pm 12/09/08 4:00pm

Ferrari-Driving French Techno Zombies Are The Right Way To Start The Day

How to explain the video above? There's no point in making a techno-electronica album in the spirit of Giorgio Moroder without some sort of insane concept. Enter Kavinksy's 1986, an album kinda sorta about a guy who was bumped off in some sort of crash that involves some kind of crime. He dies unceremoniously but is… » 4/21/08 10:00am 4/21/08 10:00am

Convincing 1986 Ferrari Testarossa Kit Car

So lets say you've got a hankering for a mid-80's mustache style Ferrari but you don't want to deal with maintenance bills that would make Leno cringe.

Ferrari Testarossa Crash In Madrid Makes Us Momentarily Worry We Need…

Everyone knows about our love of the Enzo.

Ah, the Mythos: Ferrari's Concept Supercar

We know a numbers of Ferraristas who think the boxer 12 was one of the worst engines to come thundering out of the Prancing Horse's stable. And considering when it was produced — during the 1970s and 1980s — an era during which producing over 200hp was considered a major coup, we can kinda understand why. But oh man,… » 7/21/06 11:00pm 7/21/06 11:00pm

Knit Rider: A UK Woman's Wool Ferrari

It took ten months and 12 miles of yarn, but an art student in the UK has knitted a replica of a Ferrari Testarossa (with a little 355 thrown in for good measure). She also had the notion to pull the wool over a steel frame, for structure's sake, but the rest of it is entirely stitched. The Prancing Horse badge is… » 6/15/06 9:54am 6/15/06 9:54am

Testarossa Crash in SoCal: Two Dead, One Possibly CHP

Let us say right now that as opposed to other law enforcement agencies, the CHP has only ever busted us when we were actually doing something really wrong.

New Ferrari Imola May Get Testarossa Name

AutoExpress is reporting Ferrari could be reviving the symbol for 1980s automotive fashion, the Testarossa — the car most blame for the hideous body cladding that wrapped Detroit's ugliest for 15 years afterward.
