Ferrari Driven in Pepsi Commercial By Michael Jackson Hits EBay

The 1986 Ferrari Testarossa convertible driven by Michael Jackson in the famous Pepsi commercial series, “The Chase,” is being auctioned on eBay. By Wednesday, the top bid is $79,000, but the reserve price has not been met.

The car has been garaged since 1986 and has just 17,500 miles on it. It cost $40,000 to turn it into a convertible for use in the commercial. During the commercial, the pop star is seen jumping into the car and speeding away. The car’s owner is a Hollywood automobile collector who says the car recently underwent a $17,000 servicing that included new tires and brakes.

Yes, but does it come with a can of Pepsi in the cup holder?

The sale includes a pre-production sketch, poster, a copy of the Road and Track magazine in which it is featured, and a letter of authenticity from the commercial’s director and producer. You can watch the commercial here:
