    Was at Cars and Coffee in Scottsdale on Saturday. Bit chilly, but good turnout. Among the many very nice cars, was a Porsche 918 fresh off the showroom floor and a Porsche Carrerra GT. Several very nice Ferrari's as well.

    I got some pics, but missed getting a photo of an Aston Martin DBR1, which was parked in protected area. ... The photo below is what it looked like and am curious if anyone knows if this Aston is a DBR1 or a replica. I believe actual DBR1 are minimum $10M and up. The one there at cars and coffee, had the UK number plate and was right hand drive. If it was a replica, it looked pretty damned good.

    That yellow car was a Testarossa with modified headlights. Instead of two pop-up pizza boxes for headlights, it had covered lights you see there.

    I believe it is a 512M and that's how the headlights are supposed to be.

    Thanks - Love that yellow CGT too. A "bucket list" car for sure.

    As Jim said, it's a 512M. 1 of 75 and only made in 1995. It is the last iteration of the TR. That's the way they came from the factory.

    Yes, I stand corrected. It looks so much like a TR and ... it is, just on steroids. Very rare.

    Dino, I was driving the M on Saturday. Sorry I didn't call you over to have a closer look! (Steve drove the yellow 575 parked next to me and he did have a chance to look a bit closer).

    I am representing the car for a client from the Midwest. It is number 8 of 75 cars produced for the US. If anyone wishes to have a closer look at it, I would be more than happy to arrange a showing at our hangar in the Deer Valley airpark.

    More info and pictures available here: 1995 Ferrari Testarossa 512M Phoenix , Arizona | Forman Motorworks

    Thanks for posting the pics. Saturday was a great turnout!

    -Franz
