“No, no, no, my Ferrari was white – like Don Johnson’s in ‘Miami Vice’ – not red.”
Those words are spoken by Leonardo DiCaprio in the Martin Scorsese film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, putting on his best impersonation of infamous investor Jordan Belfort as he talks about his 1991 Ferrari Testarossa. You now have the chance to own the exact Ferrari DiCaprio was referencing, with the former Belfort-owned supercar popping up for sale on Classic Driver.
The Testarossa was purchased new by the ‘Stratton Oakmont’ founder at New York Ferrari Dealership Kessler Motors in 1991. Belfort’s full name and address are documented on the ownership and warranty book, and the car comes with the original service books, handbook and tool kit. There’s also an unused set of matching luggage, however the seller claims they found a scrunched up $50 dollar bill in the lining, so it’s possible they could have been used by Wolfie himself at some point.
The Testarossa has had two owners since Belfort, both considered serious Ferrari collectors, and has traveled just 8,000 miles since new. It’s currently located in Monaco, but with Testarossa prices on the rise and this car’s interesting history, it may be worth it to ship it back stateside and throw it in a collection. That, or you could drive it around Manhattan and pretend you’re the real Wolf of Wall Street, which is what we’d probably do.
