In 1987, Michael Jackson and the Ferrari Testarossa were at the tops of their respective games. What if you could own a Testarossa driven by the King of Pop himself? Your life would become an unparalleled fantasy of 1980s awesomeness, that's what.
The good news is that now, you can own a Testarossa famously associated with Michael Jackson. Up for grabs at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale later this month is this 1986 Testarossa, which was famously seen in a Bad-era Michael Jackson commercial for Pepsi.
It's not an official Testarossa Spider — Ferrari only made one of those — but it is a custom job done up by a company in California for the video shoot. It looks pretty good, and Barrett-Jackson says an $18,000 service job was just done on its mighty flat-12 engine.
No word yet on how much this bad machine might fetch at auction, but it's probably going to do pretty well for itself. Anyone out there want to use the King of Pop's droptop Ferrari as their paparazzi getaway machine?
