The Paris Motor Show in October 1984 saw the return of the glorious Testarossa as heir to the 512 BBi. Pininfarina’s design broke somewhat with tradition and was striking and innovative. The side intakes were larger than on the previous model and this constraint saw the introduction of the long side strakes that would become the Testarossa’s most recognisable feature.
The evolution of the 12-cylinder boxer engine saw it equipped with four valves per cylinder: the most powerful engine mounted on a production sports car at the time of its launch. The Testarossa was a model that took its name from the company’s history, being derived from the successful 500 and 250 Testa Rossa series of sports racing cars from the late fifties.
This particular Ferrari Testarossa is a great example of an original 2 owner from new right hand-drive car. It was completed in Maranello in 1991.
This Testarossa is finished in the iconic Ferrari red (Rosso Corsa) with Crema (cream) hide and red carpets. It now runs on 17" O.Z.Racing split rims as the original tyres are metric and are getting harder to source.
If preferred it can be supplied on its original 16" metric sized rims. Now showing 6645 miles it will come with a full service including fresh cam belts and a new mot.
The car’s service history is as follows:
