would it bother you or you could care less?
You’d probably never be able to sell it here once you bought it. I wouldn’t waste my time. You’d just be buying a problem for yourself. Why bother with that
Agree with above. Besides that I used to drive a LH drive car in the UK and it was often very difficult to have enough visibility to pass safely--there were plenty of single-lane roads there that may be less of an issue here in the US (depending on where you live).
Why would you when LHD cars are half the price?
They only made about 500 RHD cars, if you own a RHD testa, sell it to a RHD market.
Why would U want one ?!

There is an appeal in the US for RHD Japanese cars, however, it’s more because of the uniqueness of the model. Can’t be obtained here/was never sold here and so those owners are probably putting up with the RHD configuration. Also interesting that there are many LHD Porsche’s in Japan as well. As was already stated, since the Ferrari LHD cars are available, no real reason to purchase one here. It will also make left hand turns very dangerous in traffic as you won’t be able to see oncoming cars as well.
Thanks for all the info. It’s a specific color combo and driving would be in a rural area.
its a pita.
drove LHD ferraris in the uk for years, and drove rhd wagons on the continent for years. always a pita.
do not bother.
Driven RHD cars in Malta, then to Italy where things are as they are in the USA and most other European countries.
It's a hassle. The older I get the more often I catch myself reverting to habit, which can be dangerous if the car or the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the road.
I would not have a RHD car to drive anywhere in the USA, however rural.
I have two LHD Ferraris here in the UK, and two RHD ones, I have had LHD Porsches here in the past, and I drive RHD supercars in Europe a lot. Honestly I don’t think it makes much difference at all. Except for parking lot and toll booth ticket machines and if you use drive thrus a lot. That could give you a hernia. Country roads you need to develop a technique for overtaking but it’s not too bad.
I don’t even give a thought to which of my cars is LHD and which is RHD and which should I take out, it doesn’t affect that decision at all. But I have been doing it for more than 30 years I guess.
Resale is something else I would guess for a RHD car in the US.
My Testarossa was apparently originally sold in Japan and was a LHD. The Ferrari service manual lists only GB and Australia as RHD.
There are a number of unique RHD Japanese built cars on the roads here in British Columbia but they are Toyotas, Nissans, etc and very much specialized higher performance cars than were available in NA.
