Last-minute gift idea: 'Miami Vice' Ferrari on eBay for $1.75 million


(Reuters) - Procrastinating holiday shoppers can now grab one of Miami’s most iconic two-seaters: the all-white 1986 Ferrari Testarossa driven by TV cops "Sonny" Crockett and Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs in the hit 1980s series "Miami Vice."

The car is available on eBay through Jan. 7 and is being offered for $1.75 million by a south Florida pawn and auto loan company. It acquired the car in 2012 from the person who purchased it from the series producer, a department of Universal Studios, in 1991, according to Auto Pawn Plus owner Peter Lima.

“This has been in a garage, hidden for almost 30 years,” he said.

Ferrari could not be reached to confirm the car’s authenticity.
