Ferrari Testa d’Oro : Concept Cars

This Ferrari is truly unlike any other. It was a one-off called the Testa d’Oro designed by German industrial designer Luigi Colani in 1989. Its odd looks weren’t just to be different. The car was built to break a world speed record set in 1989. The holder of the record was the 753 horsepower Mercedes Streamliner.

It has a Ferrari-Lotec twin-turbo flat-12 with slightly less horsepower than the Streamliner. The Testa d’Oro boasts 750 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 600 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. At the time of its manufacture, these numbers were incredible. They took the car to the Bonneville Salt Flats to attempt to break the record in 1989.
