Footnotes

  • Ferrari's flagship model, the Testarossa supercar revived a famous name from the Italian company's past when it arrived in 1984. A 'next generation' Berlinetta Boxer, the Testarossa retained its predecessor's amidships-mounted, 5.0-litre, flat-12 engine, which now boasted a maximum power output raised to 380bhp at 6,300rpm courtesy of four-valve cylinder heads. Despite the power increase, smoothness and driveability were enhanced, the car possessing excellent top gear flexibility allied to a maximum speed of 180mph.

    Rivalling Lamborghini's Countach for presence, the Pininfarina-designed Testarossa succeeded brilliantly, the gill slats feeding air to its side-mounted radiators being one of the modern era's most instantly recognisable – and copied - styling devices. A larger car than the 512BB - the increase in width being necessary to accommodate wider tyres - the Testarossa managed the trick of combining high downforce with a low coefficient of drag, its graceful body being notable for the absence of extraneous spoilers and other such devices. Despite the increase in size over the 512BB, the Testarossa was lighter than its predecessor, the body - its steel doors and roof excepted - being, somewhat unusually for a production Ferrari, of aluminium. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats, tilting steering wheel and plentiful leather.

    Unlike some of its rivals, the Testarossa possessed light controls and was relatively easy to drive, factors which, allied to its outstanding performance and stunning looks, contributed to an instant and sustained high level of demand.

    This left-hand drive chassis number '62173' was exported new to the USA where it found its first owner in 1987, but was supplied in the desirable European specification, without the local market's emissions equipment. Although resident in Illinois, the first owner kept the Ferrari in Florida as did the second, Wisconsin-based owner, who acquired the car in 2012. It is understood that both of these owners were pilots who kept the Testarossa at their holiday homes and registered it out of state. The current vendor is the car's fourth owner. In its first 10 years the Ferrari covered 39,000 miles and in the last 18 years it has covered only a further 26,000 miles. In May 2013 the Testarossa was serviced by the IAG Ferrari dealership in Florida at a cost of $6,031, the works including a change of cam belts. Since then the car has covered approximately 4,000 miles.

    Finished in Rosso Corsa with Crema leather interior, this fine example of the legendary Italian supercar is described as in generally excellent condition. We are advised that import duties have been paid.
