Ferrari Testarossa Special H17 TRS
1990 Ferrari Testarossa
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Not much is known about this car, just a few informations released by the famous UK Ferrari dealer Bob Houghton. According to him, the owner of the car (never said his name), who was in fashion, produced all the body drawings himself.
The final had to have visible engine. Once the quarter scale model had passed its wind tunnel tests the body was formed in alloy. The coachbuilt car is 100 Kgs lighter than a standard Testarossa, which was a donor car; 90% of the mechanicals were used from it, the rest was made at Mr. Houghton. Wheels were taken from Ferrari 360 Challenge. The seats are from Ferrari 550 Maranello, the dash and switches are of the owner's design. The car has an adjustable diffuser at the back. In 2011 it still resided in Bob Houghton's garage.
