The Testarossa (“Red-Head” for the red painted cam-covers) was unveiled by Ferrari at the 1984 Paris Auto Show as the successor to the 512-Berlinetta Boxer. A number of improvements went into production on the Testarossa resulting in improved weight distribution (40/60), increased cabin and storage room, and functional side ventilation to cool the now rear-mounted twin radiators. After ensuring that the engine would not overheat, this ducted air then left the vehicle through the vented engine-lid to spoil aerodynamic lift, allowing the car’s top speed of 180mph without an ungainly rear-mounted spoiler.
This car is an extremely low mileage example with under 13,000 original miles. Well maintained, this car has received a recent major service (7/2014) during which it received a new battery, all fluids and filters changed, all belts (includes timing), valve adjustment performed and a complete reseal of engine.
The factory Bianco/Bianco color combination shows beautifully and original materials are in place throughout the car. Factory original 16″ bolt-on wheels come with the car along with tools, manuals and records.
