This is a very special car. In the eighties, Pininfarina built one Testarossa Spyder for Gianni Agnelli, and this car looked absolutely stunning. Some Testarossa owners found their "standard" car a little bit too standard, and asked for a Spyder conversion which the factory always refused. The only possibility was to get one coachbuild, and bespoke conversions were developed by Pavesi, Lorenz & Rankl, Straman and even Pininfarina made a couple for the Sultan of Brunei.

The example we have in our inventory was developed and constructed by the German company Lorenz & Rankl, and is by far the best Spyder conversion ever made. The quality of their work is impressive, and the car feels like it is made by the factory. This is "Deutsche gr├╝ndlichkeit" at its best, with a rattle-free ride, a good structural feeling and a proper and elegant hood. Lorenz & Rankl only built 6 Testarossa Spyders and one 512TR Spyder, so it is an extremely rare car.

While factory-standard Testarossa's are becoming very sought after, a coachbuilt example like this Spyder is even more attractive. This is the car Ferrari should have built, as it looks gorgeous and offers an extra dimension to the driving experience of this 12 cilinder thoroughbred.
