‘Miami Vice’ Ferrari Could Be Yours for $1.75 Million.

There are few show business cars that are as iconic as the movies and shows that featured them, and on that short list of celebrity wheels is the white-as-a-certain-illegal-narcotic Ferrari Testarossa from the hit TV show Miami Vice.One of the iconic white Ferrari Testarossas featured on the “Miami Vice” TV show is up for sale on Ebay at the kingpins-only starting price of $1,750,000. The Ferrari Testarossa driven by Sonny Crockett in the ’80s hit “Miami Vice” has been listed on eBay, according to Road and Track, with all the documentation to prove its authenticity. Two of the cars were used in the filming of the series, driven on screen primarily by Don Johnson’s “James ‘Sonny” Crockett’ character, and are as “I love the ‘80s” awesome as cars get.

The Ferrari’s current owner tells that he bought it about three years ago, after learning that it had been sitting in a Miami garage for many years. Apparently, Enzo Ferrari was fed up with the show’s producers passing a Corvette off as one of his legendary machines, so he donated two black 1986 Testarossas to the show for use in filming. The coupe looks incredibly clean in photos, has 16,000 miles on the odometer, and comes with all of its service records since new plus full documentation of its role on the TV show. Legend has it that Ferrari ordered the offending Daytona to be destroyed on screen, creating one of the most memorable scenes in the show’s long run.

Vice is famous among car fans for introducing an entire generation to the world of exotic supercars, and while that generation is now of supercar-buying age, it’s likely this iconic ride won’t be on the auction block much longer. While they have become collectible today and can fetch well over 6 figures, it’s up to you to decide if your nostalgia is worth an extra million or more.
