Your mind wants this car to be red. It adjusts the balance somewhere between the cones in your eyes and the Ferrari receptors in your brain, making you believe it was red all along, just as it should be. At least my mind does. Probably because I’m a little colorblind.
But in all honesty, I think the color is what makes this Testarossa so special. Aside from the fact that it’s one of the early cars with only one wing mirror, I guess.
A red Ferrari, a yellow Ferrari, even a black Ferrari is a good-time car. For cruising the Sunset Strip or Collins Avenue. But something like this, a green one? This is a car that’s capable of a little more drama. And I think these shots bring out that drama perfectly.
These shots come to us from our friend Kevin McCauley. He took these a few weeks ago in Houston, Texas. The owner recently applied the green wrap to the car, which I am obviously a huge fan of. But I have weird opinions about Ferrari colors so don’t feel bad if you don’t agree.
Kevin tells me that the car has a tan interior, but the trunk carpeting is grey. Apparently the factory used whatever they had on hand for the tunk back then, matching or not.
