There are several stories surrounding chassis number ZFFAA 17B 0000 69087. One story states that in 1987 Ferrari approached the German company GEMBALLA to create a special one-off Ferrari Testarossa for the Paris Auto Show. GEMBALLA has a strong reputation for their work with tuning Porsches and was deemed an appropriate coachbuilder to create a stunning rendition of the Ferrari Testarossa. The result was an appearance package clothed on a Testarossa chassis.
Another story states that the car was modified by GEMBALLA after being purchased from the factory (a body kit with perhaps 3 other vehicles receiving the same digs).
Mounted mid-ship is the familiar five-liter, four-valves per cylinder, V12 from Ferrari offering a top speed in excess of 180 mph. zero-to-sixty was in the 5.3 second range. The wheels were BBS. Amenities such as a rear-view camera was installed.
