£75,000 gas-powered toy Ferrari

If you’re a grossly loaded oligarch trying to work out what to buy your horribly spoiled sprout for their next birthday, there's a bright idea for the taking.
Worry not, this Ferrari only goes 5mph, courtesy of a built-in lawnmower engine. It is exactly half the size of a real Testarossa Spider. Described as one of the most expensive toy cars ever produced, the detailed Italian-built model was manufactured exclusively for Harrods of Knightsbridge thirty years ago.

Owner Howard Watts said, ‘It’s a real mini-classic, a unique little car with a terrific history – the makers had to get permission from Ferrari before they could build it.
