A 1989 Ferrari Testarossa, originally ordered by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason, is up for sale in the UK. Mason told sellers Rardley Motors that he decided to buy the car on a trip to Maranello to collect his F40 from the Ferrari factory.

There’s a healthy history for the car, not just for having a famous name in the handbook but also thanks to its factory service schedule and old MOTs and invoices.

Originally specified in Blue Sera with a black hide interior it has subsequently been painted in Rosso Scuderia (Ferrari people just can’t help themselves), but if it was returned to factory spec would be one of just five such cars in Britain. There’s no word on whether the other four have also been owned by famous rock drummers…

Mason didn’t exactly drive his Testarossa to the Dark Side of the Moon, only covering 1995 miles before trading it for a 1972 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competition at well-known Ferrari dealer Talacrest. The odometer now reads 30,800, and the flat-12 Ferrari is being offered for £119,900.

This actually doesn’t seem like a lot of Money for a Testarossa, especially one with rock god history. The Hagerty valuation guide puts a condition 2, “excellent” ‘Rossa at £101,000, with concours examples stretching to £175,000.

It certainly won’t be appearing in the next Hagerty Power List with a price delta like that, but if you’re searching for one of Ferrari’s icons and want a famous name on the V5, this looks to be a fair price to say Welcome to the Machine.
