We all laughed when Ferrari announced at the recent LA Auto Show that the company would not be developing a "cheap" Ferrari. It was a play on words, because every industry insider has told us that a new entry-level sports car from Maranello is in the works. But Ferrari's right – even if the new model is the least expensive car with a galloping horse on the grille, it still won't be cheap.

Most things, however, get cheap if you wait long enough, and Ferraris are no different. Sports Car Market has assembled a slide show that reveals the Top Ten Cheapest Ferraris of 2006, ranging from a 1986 Ferrari 412i Coupe with 87,500 miles that went for $14,964 at auction to a nice 1980 Ferrari 308 GTBi with only 3,483 miles that someone nabbed for $50,600. There's one Testarossa in the bunch, a white (eww) model from 1987 with 80,270 miles that was won for $42,000. Sure, $15,000 for a car from 1986 with almost 88,000 miles is no bargain, but it's probably one of the cheapest Ferrari ever made.

      There is no such thing as a "Cheap Ferrari"... parts and labor costs take masochism to a new high. Owning a Ferrari of any vintage makes owning a mid-60s Jaguar look sane by comparison!

      I love the testarossa! I'd only get a red one. Most classic car ever. I know the only way to get them now is on ebay through a reputable dealer. I'd hate to think what would happen if the car I just bought broke down!! +$4000. So I want to get a new Ferrari F430, hence my ferrari pixel project website.

      Ferraris are not cheap to buy, but if you really want to... you can rent one at a local luxury car rental agency.
      If you want to organize something more, you can book a tour with Red Travel, an italian company that organizes guided tours with Ferraris throughout their homeland.

      "There's one Testarossa in the bunch, a white (eww) model from 1987 with 80,270 miles that was won for $42,000."

      C'mon, John, what is wrong with you? How can you hate on the white Testarossa? Didn't you watch a single episode of the greatest show of all time, Miami Vice?

      I can't help but think of Top Gear's 7x04 episode. Where they where each given £10,000 and told to go by a mid-engined Italian supercar. Then the mayhem that followed.

      I don't care what bleeping color it is, it is still a Testarossa. The cam covers are still red, right? And if that 400i has an automatic in it, it is probably a Turbo Hydra-Matic. Could you pull that sucker out and put a Muncie 4-speed in it? Maybe back it up with a 10-bolt Posi?

      PS - Yellow, esp. giallo fly is a perfectly acceptable color for a sports car, esp. a Ferrari.
