A Full On 'Miami Vice' Tribute Will Make Anyone Want A Ferrari Mondial

Jalopnik - July 02, 2020


The Ferrari Mondial came up as one of the easiest answers for our question about the cheapest cars with gated manual transmissions, but it's clear from the comments that there's not a lot of love for that car. Maybe this video will change people's minds.

This guy is selling his very clean 1988 Ferrari Mondial T on eBay with just 21,000 miles, and to show off how great it is, he made a Miami Vice-inspired video about it.

Now, I know what you're gonna say next. "But P.G.! Crockett and Tubbs rolled in a Daytona and then a Testarossa, not a stupid Mondial!" Well guess what I KNOW THAT. And I don't appreciate you questioning my knowledge of Miami Vice one bit, thank you very much.

Here's what you can do if you give this Mondial a good home: Pretend. Pretend you're in a Testarossa as you fight crime in your white linen suit.


Sure, the Mondial was kind of lethargic in the performance department, and it's not really the best-looking Ferrari of the 1980s. But as far as Mondial Ts go, this one is particularly desirable. It's the 300 horsepower version, so it's got some oomph.

I don't care what anyone says. It's still cool! Buy it and live out all your wildest Miami Vice fantasies!

This is basically what Doug DeMuro's life is like every day now.
