Ferrari supercar has always been the dream of the boxer fan and speed fan in the world. However, not every Ferrari supercar is cherished, appreciated. The Ferrari Testarossa below is a typical example.
This Ferrari Testarossa was found by a YouTuber outside a home in Puerto Rico. However, unlike many abandoned supercars, this Ferrari Testarossa is still in the owner’s land.
YouTuber found that the “ill-fated” Testarossa was Ratarossa – the man who restored and filmed videos driving old Ferrari supercars. Not long ago, it was Ratarossa who called for the Ferrari F40 that once belonged to the son of the late Iraqi President to restore this supercar.
Ratarossa later found the Ferrari F40 supercar but could not buy it for restoration because the owner set the price too high. Therefore, Ratarossa continues to search for another Ferrari supercar to restore, which is the abandoned Testarossa in Puerto Rico.

For unknown reasons, this Ferrari Testarossa was abandoned outside the house for a period of 17 years. During that time, the owner never once started this supercar.
YouTuber Ratarossa negotiated with the owner of the car to send him a video of a full view of the Ferrari Testarossa. Through the video, Ratarossa realized that the Italian supercar was broken outside because of the rainy, sunny days, but still could return to its glory.
Externally, this Ferrari Testarossa seems to only peel off paint and not rust in many places. Meanwhile, other details on the car such as rims, tires, front / rear bumpers or doors are still intact. Inside the car is a black leather interior that has been torn in several places.
Contrary to the Ferrari F40 of the son of the late Iraqi President who was “screaming” for $ 1.15 million (about VND 26.9 billion), the Testarossa is much cheaper for only £ 23,822 (726 million). This figure is quite reasonable compared to the old Ferrari Testarossa which usually costs £ 90,000 (2.7 billion) in the UK market today.
If you buy the car and restore it and resell, YouTuber Ratarossa can make a profit. However, YouTuber Ratarossa decided not to buy a Ferrari Testarossa because the transportation costs were too high. Therefore, this “ill-fated” Ferrari supercar will continue to be exposed to the wind as before.
