The Testarossa was introduced at the 1984 Paris Auto Show as a formidable yet user-friendly competitor to Lamborghini’s Countach, thanks in part to its all-new 4-valve heads, putting out 380 bhp at 6300 rpm. Motivated by the four valve version of Ferrari’s horizontally opposed flat-twelve cylinder engine, the Testarossa was quick, comfortable and made all the right sounds. Stylistically, the Testarossa stunned the world with its avant garde styling. Long, low and wide, the Testarossa appeared even more so thanks to the extensive use of horizontal slatting, a feature that would later be replicated both on other Ferraris and on many other lesser cars. Thanks to its user friendly cabin and creature comforts, the Testarossa was very plush with leather seats, rear shelf, headliner and visors. Beneath these striking features was a surprisingly organic and handsome form that remains as stunning today as it was over thirty years ago. The front compartment is reasonably sized and the car very comfortable, easy to drive and has great visibility, making it an ideal way to cover long distances at high speeds in comfort. Top speed was good for 180 mph while 0-60 took just 5.2 seconds. Today, the Testarossa is undoubtedly the bargain of the classical flat-12 Ferrari world, offering stunning good looks, unique styling, acres of torque and effortless performance at a great price!

Testarossa s/n 84596 has just 12,422 original miles and is in exceptional condition, in keeping with its well-documented and well-maintained ownership. The paintwork is exceptional and shows very nicely with no noticeable blemishes. The front spoiler was just repainted because of the usual road rash as one would expect with 12,422 miles. Testarossa s/n 84596 is mounted on an excellent set of Goodyear Eagle 225/50ZR16 front and 255/50ZR16 rear. The wheels are in excellent condition with no curbing. All of the car’s glass and trim are scratch and wear free. Panel fit is excellent as one would expect, and the body is straight and true. All switches and related trim parts are in excellent condition with no sticky residue. The dashboard is excellent. The leather is very clean and supple with very minimal surface wear on the left bolster of the driver’s seat and driver’s seat pad. The carpets, floor mats and kick-plates are all in as new condition. The engine compartment and trunk are immaculate. Because of its low mileage, books, tools, documentation and extensive recent service history, this extremely well-preserved Testarossa is a stunning example. Testarossa s/n 84596 is a pride of ownership collector car with all the goodies ready to go. Runs great, shows and drives as new. Priced right at $129,500 or best offer.
