    Ah...gotcha....cool!

    I never knew there was a correlation between the two episodes and the introduction of the "white" Testarossa.

    Well, I learned something new today....thanks!

    Yes....they wanted it white ( Production team)...but the dialogue of " new paint " now makes sense.

    Ferrari gave the show two black TR’s. The producers wanted the cars to show up better at night . As a result the TR’s were painted white.
    This is why they wrote the storyline that I refer to above

    The black TR was on quite a bit of the episode of ‘Irish eyes’ Admittedly, it looked pretty damn cool in black as well

    BLK- I know your seats are white but sometimes they look red. Do you have red seat covers on them to keep them clean perhaps? Love the 512M wheels

    OK, that explains why they are red sometimes.
    I’m going to keep the stock wheels on for a while.
    At this point I’m looking to get the aftermarket Capristo exhaust done. And maybe install the new dash that is coming along with the car . Can’t really determine until I actually see/drive the car.

    Maybe I’ll mix it up with some 512M wheels next year at this time

    What I like how is how wrong this all scene is: 340hp and clearly the TR’s sound is very interesting ; doubt they had a stock exhaust back then;)

    Congrats you will love the car
    Share pictures of the dash leather shrinkage with us when you get the car to see how bad or not it is.

    Are they the factory red satin covers? Where did you order them from? Are they specific to Testarossa or will they fit from another model?

    Correct that the show received 2 black Testarossa's . Somewhere in my pics I have them at the body shop being painted. The black didnt show up well in all the night scenes, so they decided to paint them white. Inmo a great move, as there is no better color for the Testarossa .

    I did not order them. The previous owner did and it comes with the car ( the car will arrive in early May ) .
    I am not sure if they are custom fitted for the testarossa only or if they will fit other cars as well.
    I have a custom fitted red satin indoor cover for my Porsche 911 C4 ‘S’. It fits like a glove .
    And, of course, I totally agree with your assessment on what color is the best for a testarossa :)
