We are pleased to offer 1991 USA model Ferrari Testarossa s/n 88808, finished in excellent Rosso Corsa FER 300/9 red with supple black leather on the seats, dash and console and very nice black carpets. Testarossa s/n 88808 is documented back to the day first sold to its first owner, Robert Levine, in October 1991 and has had only one obsessive owner for the last sixteen years. Has only 25,152 well documented miles from new (so only 931 miles per year) and has recently completed an engine-out cam belt service at a cost of $9,172.13 and an electrical service at a cost of $2,377.75 and so is ready to go and needs nothing. Testarossa s/n 88808 also comes with the full set of owner’s handbooks, including the warranty card showing the first owner, and the leather carrying pouch plus the tool set (all with the correct Ferrari stamp) in their vinyl tool roll, the jack kit and the jack bag with the tire iron and the spare accessory belts. Also comes with a substantial service file going back to 1997, so twenty years!

Only ten months ago, in late May 2017, Testarossa s/n 88808 was treated to a complete 30K major service; R&R engine assembly and trans; replace cam belts; cam seals; cam belt tensioner bearings; adjust valve clearances; bench test and clean injectors; flush/change all fluids; R&R and overhaul water pump; set up fuel system; mount and balance four new tires and a brake service was completed by Ferrari Service of Costa Mesa at 24,899 miles. The total invoice was $9,172.13. Only two months ago, in January, Testarossa s/n 88808 was further serviced by Ferrari Service of Costa Mesa including rebuilding alternator and a repair of the A/C connector at the relay panel terminal. The total invoice was $2,377.75. Call or e-mail for copies of the invoices. The current owner, a music lover, has updated s/n 88808 with an over-the-top Alpine Stereo system with an Eclipse 36401 Amplifier and multiple tweeter and woofer speakers. S/n 88808 is mounted on a full set of chromed Novitec 18″ x 8″ front and 18″ x 10 ½″ rear wheels fitted with four new Pirelli Pilot Super Sport 235 x 40 ZR 18″ front and 275 x 35 ZR rear tires. Braking is done with red powder coated Calipers. The side windows have been tinted to keep out the California summer heat.

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 is 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 88808 has only 25,152 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. Testarossa s/n 88808 is mounted on chromed Novitec 18″ x 8″ front and 18″ x 10 ½″ rear wheels fitted with four new Pirelli Pilot Super Sport 235 x 40 ZR 18″ front and 275 x 35 ZR 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 and console have excellent leather. Both seats and door panels have supple leather. The carpets, floor mats and kick-panels are in good shape. The engine compartment and trunk are immaculate. The underbody, floor pan and suspension are damage-free, scratch free and so in excellent condition. Because of its full books and tools and extensive recent service history, this well-preserved Testarossa is a stunning example. Runs great, shows and drives very well, thanks to a just completed engine-out cam belt service at $9,172.13 and an electrical service at $2,377.75, Testarossa s/n 88808 is priced right at $99,950 or best offer.
