Unveiled to the world the night before the opening of the 1984 Paris Motor Show at the famed Lido nightclub on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Ferrari Testarossa would become nothing short of legend. With a 0-60 mph time of just over five seconds and a top speed of near 180 mph, its performance and dramatic styling had enthusiasts falling head over heels for Ferrari's newest flat-12 creation. It soon became the poster child for a generation with numerous appearances in movies, music videos, and television shows-most notably in a starring role in Miami Vice alongside Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas.
The car we are delighted to offer was delivered new to the United Kingdom via Maranello Concessionaires in 1986. It is a RHD example that features the highly desirable single mirror "Monospecchio", with the immediately identifiable floating mirror on the Driver's A-Pillar. The car sits in the legendary and factory correct Rosso Corsa over Crema colour scheme which the marque is synonymous with. It has also recently been awarded Classiche Certification from the Ferrari Factory, confirming its matching numbers engine and gearbox as well as original colours. The Testarossa is truly an iconic car and an example such as this one represents a fantastic investment opportunity as the late 1980s era continues to gather pace in the market.
