The cars of Italy hold a very special place in the hearts of many auto enthusiasts. The character of these truly unique cars somehow reflects upon the beauty of the land of their origins and the joy of life so openly expressed by the Italian people.  Possibly no people on earth collectively love their cars like Italians and much of that has to be a result of the Italian Manufacturers' unique ability to infuse their road cars with the spirit of their race cars. Since the dawn of motorsport the great Italian builders have invested heavily in the pursuit of glory on the race tracks of the world and their quest for winning is magically buried deep within almost every car they produce.

Selezione Italia is our carefully considered selection of currently available Italian manufactured Sports & Exotic cars sourced from sellers across North America and presented here for your review. Our selection criteria is based upon our subjective determinations of the anticipated actual condition, rarity and vendor offered pricing with a focus on identifying value propositions worthy of your consideration. Our selections are made independent of vendor influence but please note that the vehicles have not as yet been fully vetted and the veracity of the vendor descriptions may not have not as yet been fully investigated.

Ferrari's Redhead!

A Prancing Horse Treasure a rare Canadian delivered example!

Where has the time gone.. it was just 30 years ago that the dawn of one of the most influential TV shows (for car guys) exploded onto the small screen and the Supercar industry took off!

The story goes that Enzo Ferrari viewed episodes of the show and was so incensed that the producers were using a 'fake' Ferrari on the show (Ferrari Daytona replica on a Corvette chassis) that he sued the producers and in the end settled the dispute and donated two stunning true Testarossa for use on the show.

Hence the Miami Vice Testarossa was the car that any kid, in fact man/child of the era lusted after.

This pristine Redhead is now ready to be passed onto it's next lover.

Why do we think that this car just makes sense on some many levels - click the link to learn the rest of the story... Click Now

We as you, know that Italian Cars are on average somewhat imperfect with many well known flaws and potential issues that other manufacturers have over the years learned to engineer out of their production models. Few if any of these Italians pretties make for reliable daily transportation and are often far happier living a life of privilege as their owner's play things much like a pet that demands constant love and attention. Many of these cars are far more like an objet d′art than a modern mode of transportation and yet unlike more traditional art the power of their intrinsic beauty has the ability to transform an owner's life with just the turn of a key. 

Things of beauty are rarely unflawed and if owning an Italian is part of your life plan then we hope that you will consider working with us at SportsCarLocate to assist you in your quest.
