The iconic white Ferrari Testarossa from Miami Vice first came up for sale on eBay in December 2014, then once again in March 2015. After that, it ended up at two Mecum auctions–one held in Monterey in August 2015, and one . Somehow, it's set to cross the block again at Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale auction next month. That's five times in two years that the car has been offered up for sale, apparently with no success.
Unfortunately, Barrett-Jackson couldn't detail this Testarossa's prior sales history, but the VIN number on the auction house's site matches the previous eBay listings. We're fairly certain that this car hasn't been sold since it first appeared on the market back in 2014. Considering this is easily one of the most iconic Ferraris of all time, we can't figure out why seemingly nobody wants to buy it.

The car has been authenticated by both Ferrari North America and Ferrari Classiche, and comes with all sorts documents from Miami Vice's production company, Universal Studios. The car was placed in storage after the show's filming ended in 1989, with a little over 16,000 miles on the clock. Since then, it's been given an $8000 engine-out service.
Testarossas have climbed in value over the last few years, but the original eBay listing's asking price of $1.75 million was perhaps optimistic. that a 1986 Testarossa in Concours-quality condition is worth $136,000. We'll find out what it's truly worth next month when it goes to auction—though Barrett-Jackson has it listed with no reserve price.
