Ferrari Testarossa / shot for Crossley & Webb / Cape Town, South Africa

[automotive] This beauty, the Ferrari Testarossa (1990) is for sale at Crossley & Webb in Cape Town and we got to shoot this sweet baby.

WHAT MAKES THE FERRARI TESTAROSSA SPECIAL?
The Ferrari Testarossa, produced from 1984 to 1996 is the flamboyant, futuristic “poster car” of the 1980s. Its impact has not diminished on the car world since its launch, partly due to its strong representation in popular media. This bold Pininfarina designed classic supercar is powered by a 4.9l flat 12-cylinder naturally aspirated Tipo F113A engine which produces 380 BHP and offers a driving experience not matched by the current “digital” supercars.
