The Ferrari Testarossa went into production in 1984 as the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer. The Pininfarina-designed car was originally produced from 1984 to 1991. This was not the first Testarossa in Ferrari's history. In the late 1950's the Testarossa name was used for one of its vehicles because of red cam covers. Testarossa means 'redhead'. The Testarossa was first shown at the 1984 Paris Auto Show. The engine was a modified version of the 512 BB. It had four-valves per cylinder, Marelli electronic ignition, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, and capable of producing 390 bhp from the 4943 cc horizontally opposed 12 cylinders. The 0 to 60 mph time was an impressive for the day (and even by today's standards!) factory quoted time of 5.3 seconds and top speed was above 180 mph. All versions of the Testarossa were rear wheel drive and had a rear-mounted, five-speed manual transmission.
The F512 M (the very last variant of Testarossa) was Ferrari's last mid-engined flat 12-cylinder car built. The Testarossa is instantly recognizable by its large cold-air inlets located on the side of the car. This was necessary because of the new location of the twin radiators in the rear. By doing this, it allowed space up front for luggage and resolved the cabin overheating problems of the previous BB's. In 1992 production of the Testarossa ceased after almost 7200 units were sold making it one of the most popular Ferrari models ever.
This stunning Right Hand Drive 512 Testarossa was manufactured in 1991 and delivered by Maranello in Egham, Surrey. The car is finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero leather interior and has a Kenwood KRC 851 Radio Cassette and 721 Amplifier, along with central locking, exactly as it left the factory. The car has, remarkably, had just one owner from new and has only covered 1,100 miles. It has been regularly maintained and in April of this year had a major service by a main dealer at which time the cambelts were replaced. This astonishing car presents superbly well and has been cared for meticulously by its owner, with leather wallet, service books, invoices and toolkit all present. Such low mileage one owner examples are incredibly hard to find and this Testarossa is without doubt amongst the finest in existence.
