THE FERRARI TESTAROSSA

Few cars are released and immediately become evocative of their era. Like the Stingray Corvette or Jaguar E-type have become symbols of the 1960's, it is hard to imagine the 1980's without the Ferrari Testarossa coming to mind. While the vehicle was fundamentally a development of the Berlinetta Boxer released in the 1970s, in many ways the new Testarossa was a departure from more traditional Ferraris.

Its dramatic figure, led by design chief Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina, combined both form and function credited to his in-depth knowledge of aerodynamics. The side strakes, which have become the most distinctive feature of the vehicle, are a prime example of Fioravanti's influence, as the side mounted radiators provided more efficient cooling to the large 4.9-liter flat-12.

As the flagship Ferrari of its day, the performance on offer was truly impressive. A commendable 385 horsepower propelled the supercar to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds and to a top speed of 180mph. Thanks to the low center of gravity and prime weight distribution afforded by its midship flat-12, handling was equally remarkable.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Finished in the Rossa Corsa with a tan interior, this Testarossa is a fine example of one of Ferraris most recognizable supercars. While the early history and initial delivery location of this vehicle are unknown, the consigner reports that he purchased the vehicle in 1998 from another gentleman in the state of California. At this point, the Testarossa had just under 30,000 miles on the clock. Since then, the car has been sparingly used and has only put, on average, 400 miles a year since coming into the ownership of the consigner.

At 33,000 miles the timing belt, dry belts, coolant hoses, spark plugs, valve cover gasket, and fluids were all changed. Also, the valves received an adjustment. A mere thousand miles later, the transmission was rebuilt and had a new clutch installed by a marque specialist in Sothern California. It is also reported that the fluids were changed again a couple hundred miles ago and the front air dam was repainted. Additionally, the car will be provided with its books, tools, and embossed luggage set with velour covers.

As an icon of the 80's, the Ferrari Testarossa has become an increasingly collectable automobile as the years pass on. This example is sure to provide its next owner with plenty of thrills.
