Modernized Ferrari Testarossa "Miami Vice" Has Lamborghini Lights

This is a terrible era to be a purist, since automotive icons become the topic of more and more custom car renderings. Case in point with the Ferrari Testarossa looking at us from the screen.

Interestingly, the artist behind these pixels (more on this below), has decided not to take the machine too far from the form the Prancing Horse intended, albeit with one notable exception.

As such, the 80s icon features a widebody, but the beefed-up fenders are subtle and might just escape undetected if an untrained eye checks out the V12 machine.

We probably can't say the same about the wheels of the Fezza - these feature uber-massive lips, whose chrome finish could always replace a mirror. Now, in case you're wondering why this Testarossa sits so close to the road, it's because of an air suspension, which means the driver can lift the vehicle when coming across a sleeping policeman, for instance.

"What about that exception mentioned above?" I hear you asking. Well, this is pretty brutal, since we're talking about Lamborghini taillights, which you'll find not hiding behind the Testarossa-specific grille we all expect to be there.

Abimelec Arelano is the digital artist behind this stunt, the pixel wielder who's constantly challenging norms and conventions through his work (this mid-engined 90s Toyota Supra is an example as good as any).

Speaking of which, you should make sure to use the swipe feature of the Instagram post below, which portrays the Italian exotic - fortunately, the said artist has put in the time to create multiple angles for this heretic Ferrari.

Now, if you're looking for a Testarossa rendering that marks a radical departure from the factory form of the icon, this contraption should do the trick, since the machine mixes the said Ferrari model with a Scuderia Ferrari F1 car.

Some time ago I made a Ferrari Testarossa in Photoshop inspired by Miami Vice and the Synthwave/Outrun aesthetics (All out ‘80s inspired style, with neon colors on dark backgrounds) It had a couple of modern touches though, like modern wheels, suspension and Lamborghini (Yes) inspired taillights. You guys loved that! And you know what? So did I, So it’s back! This time with new wheels, a lip spoiler and a molded widebody. I am experimenting with new effects for renderings because I really want to up the ante in my “visual department”. Tell me what you think! and also what you think about this Testarossa! If you like these and you fancy a wallpaper for your phone, check my stories today! (or my story highlights if you’re looking at this after 24 hours) Hope you’re having a great Tuesday! . . . . . . . . #ferrari #testarossa #v12 #flat12 #outrun #synthwave #1980 #eighties #techno #neon #lamborghini #lights #water #bed #white #coke #miami #vice #vice #city #italy #lowered #widebody #slammed #3d #render
