THE FERRARI TESTAROSSA

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-liter, flat-12 engine, which now boasted a maximum power output of 380bhp at 6,300rpm, courtesy of four-valve cylinder heads. The new supercar was now capable of reaching a top speed of 180mph.

The gill slats feeding air to its side-mounted radiators became one of the modern era's most instantly recognizable - and copied - styling devices. The Testarossa was a larger car than the 512BB - the increase in width accommodating a roomier cabin and wider tires. The new design managed to combine high downforce with a low coefficient of drag with 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 was made up almost entirely from strong, lightweight aluminum with the exception of the doors and roof which were constructed of steel. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, tilting steering wheel and plentiful leather. Unlike some of its rivals, the Testarossa possessed light controls and was relatively easy to drive - factors which when paired with its outstanding performance and stunning looks, contributed to an instant and sustained high level of demand.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

An early Monospecchio (single mirror) model, this well-kept Testarossa rolled off the Maranello-based Ferrari production line in July of 1986 and was destined for the US market. Finished in the popular Corsa Red over a tan leather interior, neatly contrasted by a darker brown upper interior color, the known history of this Testarossa starts in the mid-1990s, when the car is recorded to have resided in Southern California. The car appears to have remained in the Golden State ever since and is now offered from the Los Angeles owner of several years. About 82,500 miles are recorded on the odometer, and it is offered complete with owner's manuals and tools. Testarossa number 65811 is a wonderful example of these iconic twelve-cylinder flagship Ferrari GTs.
