1990 Ferrari Testarossa
Nickname:
N/A
Owner:
N/A

Notes:
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.

And in ten minutes later, the next one is there. The view is different and was much more difficult to achieve the unfinished look, but I'm good with the result. Thanks!

Yeah looks good Med - agreed this angle is more difficult to achieve the unfinished look. Now the question is when are we going to see an ''unfinished'' pickup truck from you. Now that will be something to see ....

Your welcome:D

Oh damn haha, I placed a notice of it on my F but forgot to do that here; Due to school, life is hectic. I only had 1 week from when I started because I had a short week off, however though, 50% of that week was filled with other stuff unfortunately:( So...now I'm waiting for the summer holiday to come to move on:)

Drawing is not the life, so it's OK, I guess;)

Great picture of a rare Ferrari model! I didn't knew that something like that existed and I must say that it's the one of the best looking Ferraris!

I crossed it some time ago absolutely accidentally on the Net. I didn't like for a long time, but it grew on me. Much F-cars did...

I can't wait for Cheerag Arya's 599 GTO based one-off. Google Ferrari SP Arya, some cool official renders are there.

I know about the Testarossa, but I never knew they had a special edition one with a whole new different design. But it's cool!
Yeah, I know about Eric's Ferrari. :)
