The Ferrari Testarossa was the star of the 1984 Paris Motor Show, rivaling the Lamborghini Countach in terms of styling and performance and instantly becoming the poster-car of a generation. The design alone was a drastic change from the outgoing 512 BBi; not only was it a far more angular (and arguably more attractive) design, but also one of function.
In addition, the Testarossa was capable of 40% more power than its predecessor; 380bhp propelling the beautiful body to 60mph in less than 6 seconds and on to a top speed of 180mph. Such performance figures and capabilities form the purpose for one of the Testarossas most striking design features, the 'cheese grater' side strakes, keeping the car cool and stable at such speeds.
The interior also benefited from significant upgrades on the outgoing Boxer, mainly revolving around a greater finish and more space for both passengers and luggage, to allow this V12 supercar to also be used on Grand Tours in great comfort.
The car we are offering is a highly desirable single mirror 'Monospecchio' & 'Monodado' example, with the immediately identifiable single mirror on the Driver's A-Pillar and the large single wheel nuts. The car was delivered new in 1986 in the legendary Rosso Corsa over Crema colour scheme which the marque is synonymous with. The car was Classiche Certified in September of 2008, and comes with a significant collection of service history invoice documents as well as the original book pack.
