Have you ever wondered what one of the most expensive toys in the world would look like? Would it be a 3D video gaming device? A super fancy computer? Or a prize-winning pony? No. It’s a tiny Ferrari 180 Testa Rossa toy car.

This Testa Rossa was made in Italy (obviously) and will be the headlining feature at the Art of the Automobile auction in New York.

The starting bid on this toy car? Just a cool $1 million! 

The ‘car’ is being distributed through US-based Luigi Chinetti Motors. This is the only licensed American Ferrari dealership active at the time the car was built. Chinetti himself is also a long-time friend, business partner and even racing teammate of mr. Enzo Ferrari.

However, the tiny toy car is not just a really, really expensive ornament. The car has 0.3 horsepower and a tiny, 12-volt motor. So, at least some spoiled child will get a little bit of ride out of it.

Auction president, Alain Squindo, says the appeal of the tiny car will be to those (rich) people who collect sportscars:

“This car is the pinnacle of what you would’ve given to that very lucky boy or girl. It’s something that nowadays would round out an eclectic collection. It would appeal to someone who actively collects sports cars” he said.

We’re sure one lucky kid will definitely have the sweetest ride on the block.
