There’s only one official Ferrari Testarossa Spider in the world and Artcurial recently auctioned it off for the equivalent of $1.3 million USD. That’s a lot of money to spend on a car, even for the richest of the rich, but Artcurial is now offering a more affordable alternative to the official Testarossa Spider.
This 1987 Ferrari Testarossa Spider started out life as a hardtop, but underwent a softtop conversion at the hands of customizations shop Rankl & Lorentz. Despite this being an aftermarket job, Artcurial says the workmanship is “neat and very professional,” with a reinforced chassis and a semi-electrically powered roof.
The car has had just three owners since leaving Ferrari’s Maranello workshop nearly 30 years ago and has travelled just 20,000 km. Its most recent owner kept it in a collection, where it enjoyed the company of 10 other Testarossas and was regularly maintained and well-cared for. Artcurial says it recently underwent a major service and will be delivered with all original booklets and service invoices.
Estimates place this Testarossa Spider’s value at 170,000-230,000 euro (about $190,000 – $255,000 USD), which is quite a lot for a car with aftermarket modifications. Despite this, we think it will have no proble mat all finding a new home at Artcurial’s upcoming Le Mans Classic auction.
