The Testarossa was introduced at the 1984 Paris Auto Show as a formidable competitor to Lamborghini’s Countach, thanks in part to its all-new 4-valve heads, putting out 428 bhp at 6300 rpm. Motivated by the four valve version of Ferrari’s horizontally opposed twelve cylinder engine, the Testarossa was quick 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 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 arresting today as it was over thirty years ago. The trunk is reasonably sized and the car very comfortable and easy to drive, 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 flat-12 Ferrari world, offering stunning good looks, unique styling, acres of torque and effortless performance at a great price!
Testarossa s/n 86053 has just 2,590 original miles in total 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 is devoid of damage, as one would expect with only 2,590 miles. Testarossa s/n 86053 is mounted on 8 X 18 front and 10 X 18 rear Monolitic 5-spoke star rims with what are essentially new Goodyear Eagle 235/40ZR18 front and 295/35ZR18 rear tires. 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, history and obsessive accessory package, this extremely well-preserved Testarossa is a stunning example.
