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:
