The Testarossa name, which means “red head” in Italian, comes from the red-painted cam covers on the flat-12 engine.[7] The double entendre with a red-headed woman was intentional – Ferrari and Pininfarina regularly use descriptive terms related to a female’s body when describing the style of their automobiles.

As Ferrari’s range-topper during the 1980s, the car made appearances in numerous video games, most notably the arcade games Out Run and also in the TV series Miami Vice, as Sonny Crockett’s undercover car from season three. The car has subsequently become synonymous with 80s “yuppies” and is an icon of 80s retro culture.[12]
