Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1992, the 512 TR was one of the final developments of Ferrari's sensational Testarossa supercar. Ferrari's flagship model, the Testarossa 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; the latter now boasting 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 290km/h.

    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. In 1992 the original Testarossa was succeeded by the updated 512 TR version, which came with 428bhp on tap and could easily exceed 300km/h. Pininfarina gave the TR a front-end makeover and the newcomer also gained improved under-body aerodynamics and 18" diameter wheels. A total of 2,280 512 TRs had been made when production ceased in 1994.

    This beautiful Ferrari 512 TR was sold new by Ferrari dealer Sportage Graber in Switzerland to Mr Kuhn Werner and has had only three private owners from new. Serviced up to 2005 by a Ferrari main dealer and subsequently by the same Ferrari specialist, it comes with a most substantial file of service history including 24 service pages and receipts. The last cam belt service was undertaken in 2014 at 18,521 kilometres by a Ferrari specialist (see receipt for the equivalent of £8,000) while the latest service and health check was carried out a mere 500 kilometres later at Stratstone Ferrari in February 2016.

    The previous owner's service receipts totalling over £30,000 are with the history file and testify to his conscientious approach to maintenance. Imported by the vendor in 2016, the car also comes with its leather wallet, service books, tool kit, Ferrari EU Certificate of Conformity, and MoT to November 2016. A NOVA certificate has been issued and the Ferrari is UK-registered. Finished in the classic colour combination of Rosso Corsa with beige leather interior, this un-restored and immaculate 512 TR is a most attractive proposal for the Ferrari aficionado.
