Pininfarina design, gated manual 5-speed gearbox, and a robust, naturally aspirated 12-cylinder engine. This is Ferrari’s signature recipe that has created some of the most iconic and sought-after road cars to date. As we entered the 1980s, it was a truly exciting time in the automotive world as the dawn of the supercar era had arrived. Manufacturers were conjuring up exotic body designs and super-powerful engines for their road cars, to a degree that had never been explored. Lamborghini had come out with the Countach which was unlike anything the car world had seen before, between its massive rear wing, vertically hinged doors, and stunning ascetics. It was pure eye candy that had raw, uncensored power however, Ferrari had an answer for the flashy Lambo.

The Ferrari Testarossa is a name that had not been used since the LeMans winning 250TR. This name represents a significant time for Ferrari as well as a significant racing pedigree, so the expectations for the car were very high. In 1984, the stage was set at the Paris Auto Show, as enthusiasts awaited the unveiling of the new, highly anticipated Testarossa and it did not disappoint. It was an immediate success, as Ferrari went on to produce over 10,000 units. Over the course of the Testarossa life cycle, the car underwent only a few cosmetic changes as well as mechanical ones. Early cars were marked by high-mounted, single mirrors on the driver’s side, and the very latest ones, ditching the pop-up headlights. By 1990, only a few model years before moving onto the 512 TR, the original Testarossa had benefited from 5 lug wheels, catalytic converters, and a new flywheel. Given that the previous years were quite the slam dunk for the engineers in Maranello, you can see why only small tweaks were made over the years.

The Testarossa on offer here, chassis # ZFFSG17A1L0083906, is finished in its original Rosso Corsa paint and shows just over 9,100 miles on its original engine, #20898. On October 23rd, 1990 this Testarossa was first taken in by a dealer where 1 year later it’s first real owner purchased the car showing 805 miles on the odometer in 1991. Following that, the first owner enjoyed the car thoroughly, putting 3,297 miles on it over two years. The car seemingly stayed with the original owner until 2009 when it was sold to a dealer in Arkansas with an odometer reading of 8,904. In 2013 a new owner was reported who held onto the car for several years before passing it off to Cauley Ferrari, in West Bloomfield, Michigan in 2017. After arriving at Cauley a full comprehensive inspection of the suspension, electrical system, and all of the glass was carried out, as well as a general service including an oil change was completed. Following the completion of those services, the car was purchased by its current owner, who has sparingly enjoyed this classic red over tan Testarossa.

This example is truly collector grade in every sense of the word with its original paint hardly showing a single knick on the front hood, wheels in perfect original shape, and paint with incredible depth and orange peel throughout. The tan with brown interior presents wonderfully with one scuff near the shifter housing and only minor wear on the driver-side seat as one would expect. Once seated you’re greeted with a perfect driving position and once out onto the road this Testarossa springs to life, with its wonderful 12-cylinder engine and engaging gated 5-speed manual transmission. These days, a mid-engine 12-cylinder Ferrari is a $1,000,000 affair at minimum. Testarossas provide an entry point much cheaper at which that iconic layout can be enjoyed!

Included in the sale of this Testarossa are the original manuals, Classiche Certification, and full factory tool set.

om Ferrari
Den första Ferrari väg bil var de 125 S introducerades 1947 och drivs av en 1,5 L V12 motor, eller hur?
Tja det är inte riktigt så enkelt, Ferrari faktiskt producerar e Tipo 815, 1940 Tipo 815 ritades av ex-Alfa Romeo ingenjörer Alberto Massimino och Vittorio Bellentani och Enrico Nardi enligt Enzo sällskap men juridiska frågor med det tidigare intresse Alfa Romeo hindrade Ferrari från att lansera Ferrari marque vid den punkten.

Enzo fick fram en rad fina väg bilar på 50-talet och 60-talet, men de var bara för att finansiera sin passion racing, väder GT / Sportbil eller Grand Prix. 50-talet såg födelsen av Ferraris mest minnesvärda bilar, 250 GTB (tour de France) 250 Testa Rossa, 250 GT SWB bara för att nämna några.

Under ytspänningen växte dock. I November 1961 erfaren försäljningschef Girolamo Gardini gjorde ett ultimatum till Enzo: om spänningar fortsatte skulle han lämna företaget. Som ett resultat var Gardini avsattes, liksom Scuderia Ferrari manager Romolo Tavoni, överingenjör Carlo Chiti, experimentell sportbil utveckling chief Giotto Bizzarrini, och ett antal andra, som stod vid dem.
Utan Chiti och Bizzarrini utvecklingen av vad som skulle bli den mest kvintessensen Ferrari och idag världens dyraste bil, 250 GTO, var vid en svängpunkt. 250 GTO projekt räddades av en ung ingenjör Mauro Forghieri och lång tid racing bodyman Sergio Scaglietti som klev in och tog över programmet med kända resultat.

Förutom 250 GTO, Ferrari launced sådana mästerverk som 250 LM, 250P, 275 GTB, 365 GTB / 4 "Daytona" under 60-talet
I slutet av 60-talet Ferraris prototyper framgång fick ett abrupt stopp av en ny konkurrent, GT40. Ford vände sig till Lola för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter Enzo hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som gav Ferrari några tunga hits i Le Mans 24 framöver.
I slutet av 60-talet FIAT köpte 50% av bolaget, med start en utveckling som har lett till en ny massproducerade era av Ferraris.

Oavsett om du säljer eller letar efter en klassisk Ferrari är platsen att kolla ut.
