Ferrari Testarossa Go-Kart

When originally offered in the 80’s to luxury consumers with too much money, the Ferrari Testarossa sold at such premium stores as FAO Schwartz and Neiman Marcus for more than $50,000. Over twenty years later, the St. Louis Car Museum & Sales is offering one for less than half that.

The hand-built Testarossa kart is powered by a 5hp Briggs & Stratton engine coupled to an automatic transmission with two speeds plus reverse. It features an electronic ignition, a Momo steering wheel with working horn, CD stereo, fully functional lights and signals (including retractable headlights), an independent suspension, hydraulic rear disc brakes and adjustable seats, all backed up by a 12-volt electrical system. The fiberglass-bodied kart measures 111″ long and at 615 lbs will top out at 30 mph.
