Ferrari never officially sold a production Testarossa convertible, but that didn't stop conversion shops from building aftermarket versions. Just a handful have been built over the years, and this one is for sale. You should buy it.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

There were two prominent aftermarket conversions in the '80s for Testarossa owners seeking a pure top-down experience: One by noted California-based coachbuilder Richard Straman, and another offered by Italian Giovanni Agnelli. We drove both back-to-back when the cars were new, and preferred the looks of the Straman car you see here. It's not like he just sliced the roof off and called it a day—the windshield, doors, and rear decklid were all reshaped, making for a stunning piece of design that looks like it came from the factory.

This particular 1987 model has covered just 50,000 miles since new, and just underwent a full service. It looks to be in great condition, and it's currently listed for sale by the Stuart Parr Collection, a dealership in New York. There's no price given, but considering Straman made just a dozen examples, we're sure it'll cost a bit more than your average Testarossa.
