Gold Trimmed 1987 Ferrari Testarossa Begs One Question: Why?

Found for sale on eBay, is this specially customized 1987 Ferrari Testarossa, which has been...cheesed up with gold platted accents. The precious material covers the five-spoke alloy wheels, logos, side air vents, front grille, rear vents and the rear column surrounds.

Surprisingly, the owner claims that the Italian supercar has clocked a mere 3,000 miles or about 4,800 kilometers on the odo in the past 23 years, all of which he says were made "behind guarded gates in our community". Unless the community has a private race track, we can't really think of a worst fate for a Prancing Horse model... The asking price for the kitschy Testarossa is $90,000. Scroll down for more photos and the seller's entertaining description.
