1991 Ferrari Testarossa
The brief for the development of the Testarossa was to solve the luggage space and cabin heating issues of its predecessor, the Berlinetta Boxer, and create a comfortable GT car with a 12-cylinder engine and side-mounted radiators. Shortly became the legendary shape that is the Testarossa, with design elements including its iconic sidestrakes, sleek and low silhouette, and the era-fitting pop up headlights. This created one of the great poster cars of the 80s.
Its mid-mounted 4.9L flat-12 produced 390hp and 361 lbft of torque. This power, sent through the rear wheels and a limited-slip differential, pushed the car from 0-60 in 5.3 seconds, which is fast even by today’s standards.
This Testarossa has driven just 2935 miles (4724 km) from new, with original paint and major service has recently been completed with marque specialist Aldo Riti. Both cambelts, belt tensioners and all cam oil seals were replaced, as well as all fluids, oil and a bleeding of the clutch and brake system. Whilst with Aldo the car was praised for its condition and sits as one of the best available today.
The car comes with a documented picture record, obtaining its Italian ASI classic car certificate. All keys are available, the original leather service wallet with all documents and its Tessera di Garanzia which has been signed by marque legend Mauro Forghieri. It also benefits from a tubi exhaust, with the original still available, and it comes with a genuine Ferrari indoor cover plus the original leather toolkit. A great chance to own one of the best Testarossas with considerably low mileage.
