  • Testarossa Winner (1988)
    • ID number: W-01
    • Accessories: none
Testarossa Winner was released in Bandai's Machine Robo: Battle Hackers toyline in 1988, and converts from robot to Ferrari Testarossa sportscar. As a Winner Robo, toy's conversion is semi-automatic - pressing a button on the underside of the vehicle causes it to pop into robot mode; it is also fitted with Hot Wheels-style wheels and can interact with the Roboshooter Gaiden track playset. Despite this it still retains diecast parts and some arm movement. Testarossa Winner was the only figure to use the red-style test packaging before it was swiftly replaced with the white style used for the other figures.
  • Testarossa Winner was recoloured as Ninja Winner.
  • Like the other Winner Robo, Testarossa Winner was not released outside of Japan.

  • Though the toyline portrayed Testarossa Winner as the leader of the Winner Robo in the cartoon basically everyone but Testarossa Robo had a go leading the unit.
