The Testarossa was introduced at the 1984 Paris Auto Show as a formidable yet user–friendly competitor to Lamborghini’s Countach, putting out 380 hp at 6300 rpm thanks in part to its all-new 4-valve heads. Powered 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. Its dramatic side strakes helped to channel air into the dual rear-mounted radiators, which kept both the engine and cabin from overheating. 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 slating, a feature that would later be replicated 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 handsome form that remains as stunning today as it was when introduced thirty-eight years ago. The front compartment is reasonably sized and the car is very comfortable, has light steering, is 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!
Today Testarossa s/n 75740 is documented back to Leon Cornell, the first owner, and has only 29,641 miles, so s/n 75740 has been driven an average of only 780 miles per year since new. In early 2009 there was damage to the right front fender, the right door and the right rear fender. The owner settled with the insurance company and retained Testarossa s/n 75740 with a salvage title. In April of 2009 the damage to the right front fender, the right door and the right rear fender was repaired by Orange County Collision. Photos of the damaged area are on our site. The total of parts was $2,500 and labor was another $3,500 for a total invoice of $6,000. The repairs were well done and Testarossa s/n 75740 won best car of the 1980s at the Fathers Day car show on 16 June, 2019 in Brea, CA and on 05 June, only a month ago, Testarossa s/n 75740 won the Best Ferrari Award at the Steve McQueen commemorative car and bike show, Chino Hills, CA. Photos of the best car of the 1980s trophy and the Best Ferrari Award trophy are shown in the photos on our site. All of the car’s glass and trim are scratch and wear free. All switches and related trim parts are in excellent condition with no sticky residue. The seats have been redyed and the carpets, floor mats and kick-panels are in good shape. The car will be power washed during the service. The underbody, floor pan and suspension are damage-free, and in good condition. As a 1988 year model s/n 75740 features the more desirable center-lock wheels. The dashboard has shrunken leather on the passenger’s side, the tires have a 2014 date code and the front spoiler has the usual chips one would expect at 29,641 miles. Thanks to a fresh $16,962.41 service and service docs back to 1994, Testarossa s/n 75740 show well, drives well, has detailed service records, is an excellent driver and so is priced right at $99,500 or best offer.
