    For Sale in Italy: A One-Off Ferrari to End All Ferraris
    image.jpg
    If you’re a car collector who has become jaded at the notion of a Ferrari, we just may have the antidote for you. This $1.7 million Ferrari Testa D’Oro Colani is a Ferrari unlike any other. It’s the perfect prancing horse for those seeking something truly—and wildly—unique.

    The outlandish creation was conceptualized by Luigi Colani, a world-famous industrial designer. His goal was to build a car that could set top-speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats, and so he decided a Ferrari Testarossa would be a good starting point for his project.

    image.jpg

    Not only did he create an aerodynamically slick new body for the Testarossa, he also contacted Lotec, who worked with Ferrari to develop a beefed-up powerplant for the machine. They ended up with a massaged version of the car’s stock flat-12 engine that now had two turbochargers strapped to it.

    In its modified form, it produced more than 750 horsepower. The new thrust combined with Colani’s one-off body allowed the Testa D’Oro Colani in 1991 to win its class at Bonneville, setting a top-speed record of 218 mph. Details are limited regarding the car’s life since the early ’90s—we’re not surprised, as cars this rare usually stay tucked away.

    Now, however, this rare stallion has surfaced and is for sale in, fittingly, Maranello, Italy, by exotic-car dealer, Maranello Purosangue. There are a ton of things about this car (including a portrait on the steering wheel of what looks like Frank Zappa) that make it unlike any other Ferrari. Or anything else with four wheels.

    Looks like someone ran over an AMC pacer with a steam roller then painted it red and added some Ferrari emblems!

    It looks like it was designed by Matt Groening, the creator of the Simpsons/Futurama, with those front lips.
