When you see a crisp white Ferrari Testarossa – you’re likely to think about the performance and pedigree of this rare and desirable marque.

However, this particular Survivor could be referred to as a Wolf in Sheep’s clothing, as it was originally owned by ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ - Jordan Belfort.

Jordan ordered the car new from New York Ferrari dealer Steven Kessler, and he is named as the first owner in the warranty book and original invoices which accompany the car. It was at this time that Jordan and his company Stratton Oakmont was growing in stature, making loads of money, and as we found out later in the headlines, breaking all the rules. This car has only covered 8,300 miles, and is one of the last Testarossas built from the 7,177 cars produced.

Even though the Testarossa was one of the most mass produced Ferraris made, it is still highly desirable amongst Ferrari collectors. This car is still for sale – via an exclusive car dealer that caters for the rich and famous. Who will be the next owner of this famous Ferrari? And will they be as successful or as infamous as the car’s previous owner?
