Ferrari Testarossa '90 1990

General description : Imported from the US to Belgium MOT without any remarks in 2020, barely driven ever since (CarPass) With maintenance invoices Ready to drive, well maintained Neat interior, small sign of use on the driver’s seat The Ferrari Testarossa was presented at the Paris Auto Show in 1984. Its name was derived from two earlier successful Ferrari racing cars of the 250 series. At the time, it was the production car with the most powerful engine on the market and noticeably only superlatives can do it justice. Sales had been successful - by Ferrari standards, not in millions - though production stopped in 1992, with a total of approximately 7.200 units produced. This luxurious sports car was designed by the famous design company Pininfarina, who are based in Turin. It is fair to say that they made this Ferrari a true icon. Regulation in various countries did not allow for large air sucking holes to be built into a car. Pininfarina decided to design air ‘slots’ on the doors of the car. These air slots are nicknamed ‘egg slicers’ and provide the V12 engine with enough oxygen to burn fuel and convert it to Italian horsepower, real horsepower. Initially regular air intakes were designed, but those seem to break the laws in some countries. Thanks to the iconic design of these vents, the Testarossa deserved starring roles in famous TV series like Miami Vice. Rumour has it that famous people such as Elton John, Rod Stewart, and Michael Jordan have one in their garage. Under the hood of the Testarossa is an unbelievably high-performance V12 engine of 4943 cc which produces 385 horsepower and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0-60 mph) in less than six seconds. Four valves per cylinder give the power a boost, for a total of 48 valves, which was also ground-breaking at the time. The 48-valve engine is controlled by a manual five-speed gearbox, which creates a driving experience that is typical to Ferrari. Testarossa is Italian for ‘redhead’ and refers to the similarly named Ferrari racing cars of the 1950s and 1960s, whose names referred to the red painted cylinder heads. Over the years, a few minor adjustments were made to the car. In 1986 and in response to customer demand, a right-hand mirror was installed, as it was not originally present. In 1991, Ferrari unofficially decided to stop production of the Testarossa. The successor would be the 512TR - TR still meaning Testarossa - and was essentially an upgraded Testarossa. The Testarossa is a car that only superlatives can describe. It has set the tone for further Ferrari cars and had – at the time – the most powerful engine to be ever made for a production car. This, and its appearance in numerous tv series, make it a very coveted classic among car aficionados.

About Ferrari
The first Ferrari road car was the 125 S introduced in 1947 and powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine, right?
Well it's not quite that simple, Ferrari did in fact produce e Tipo 815, in 1940. Tipo 815 was designed by ex-Alfa Romeo engineers Alberto Massimino and Vittorio Bellentani and by Enrico Nardi under Enzo's company but legal issues with the former associate Alfa Romeo prevented Ferrari from launching the Ferrari marque at that point.

Enzo did produce a series of fine road cars in the 50's and 60's but they were merely to finance his true passion racing, wheather GT/Sports car or Grand Prix. The 50's saw the birth of Ferrari's most memorable cars, 250 GTB (tour de France) 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT swb just to name a few.

Under the surface tension was growing though. In November 1961 long-time sales manager Girolamo Gardini made an ultimatum to Enzo: if tensions continued, he would leave the company. As a result, Gardini was ousted, as well as Scuderia Ferrari manager Romolo Tavoni, chief engineer Carlo Chiti, experimental sports car development chief Giotto Bizzarrini, and a number of others who stood by them.
Without Chiti and Bizzarrini the development of what was to become the most quintessential Ferrari and today the world's most expensive car, 250 GTO, was at a pivoting point. 250 GTO project was saved by a young engineer Mauro Forghieri and long-time racing bodyman Sergio Scaglietti who stepped in and took over the program with known results.

In addition to 250 GTO, Ferrari launced such master pieces as 250 LM, 250P, 275 GTB, 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" during the the 60's
By the late 60's Ferrari's prototypes' success came to a sudden halt by a new competitor, GT40. Ford turned to Lola to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after Enzo had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that gave Ferrari some heavy hits in Le Mans 24 to come.
By the end of the 60's FIAT purchased 50% of the company, starting a development that has led to a new mass-produced era of Ferraris.
