All headlights up until the late 90's early 2000's were incandescent. Some were halogen.

The incandescent is somewhat yellowish.

Halogen is whiter.

Xenon is very white.

Blue is not an approved color.

Lamp color depends upon the kelvin number.

TR gauge lighting is orange-red in color. The original TR headlights were what all cars in the 1980s were...white to a slight hint of yellow. The headliner is leather as is just about all of the interior panels, it must have taken 5 or 6 cows to make all of that leather! TRs did not have keyless entry. They also did not have cruise control, or power locks, or power trunk release, or even a decent stereo system. They did have power door mirrors, AC, power windows, manual-tilt steering wheel. The carpets are Wilton Wool...very expensive stuff for the day. TRs also did NOT have power seats...with the exception of a few cars that were special ordered with Ricaro seats - I'e never seen one in person, only in a picture once many years ago.

What other Testarossa specific questions do you have?
