Footnotes

  • 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 390bhp 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. The Testarossa managed to combine high downforce with a low co-efficient of drag, its body being notable for the absence of extraneous spoilers and other devices. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats, tilting steering wheel, and plentiful leather.

    This exceptional left-hand drive Testarossa was first registered in Italy on 7th December 1990 and spent the next 25 years in its home country. Personally selected from the best Italy had to offer, it was purchased from Autoluce in Modena in 2015 and since then has had only one owner in the UK.
    Prior to delivery to the UK, the Testarossa was treated to an extensive pre-sale overhaul by renowned Ferrari Specialists, Autofficia Bonin Carlo Srl of Regio Emilia. This included the obligatory replacement of cam belts, etc and is supported by detailed invoices. During its UK ownership the car has been maintained regardless of cost by Ferrari specialists Barkaways (bills available). Further enhancements include a set of four new tyres and new UK-specification headlights (originals with car).

    Finished in the classic combination of Rosso Corsa with Crema hide interior, the latter featuring excellent tan carpets and a brown leather dashboard and centre console, this extremely well cared-for Testarossa has covered only 16,500 miles from new. A 'Series 2' model to standard specification, the car boasts twin mirrors and immaculate five-bolt wheels, and retains its factory-original exhaust system.

    The car comes with a full set of owner's manuals, stamped service book, leather wallet, two keys, jack, tool kit (unused), spare wheel, bulb holder set, and a rarely seen pair of glass-etching cards. Substantiating this Testarossa's history and provenance, the necessary invoices and paperwork are present and the car also come with a V5C Registration Certificate and MoT to 28th June 2020. The cherished registration 'ENZ 210' is included in the sale.
