The Ferrari Testarossa was first unveiled at the 1984 Paris Auto Show, quickly becoming the poster car of a generation. The design that would rival the Lamborghini Countach was a drastic change from the 512 BB that the car derived from. Not only did Ferrari sway from the smooth lines seen on its prior, they also radically changed the engine from what was formally seen in the 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 (even by today's standards) time of 5.3 seconds and top speed was over 180 mph. All versions of the Testarossa were rear wheel drive and had a rear-mounted, five-speed manual transmission.
The interior also benefited from significant upgrades, 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 with upmost comfort. This UK RHD example was supplied new by Maranello Sales in December 1990 to its first private owner. Presented in its original and most stunning combination of Rosso Chiaro over a Crema (3997) Hide interior with optional Nero dashboard and Rosso carpets. Despite having covered less than 2,000 Miles during the last decade, in July 2016 DK Engineering completed a comprehensive major service including cambelts as well as thorough overhaul of any necessary components. During this time DK's in house Master Detailer carefully restored the exterior and interior to a fine condition.
Today it has covered under 11,500 Miles from new and presents in superb condition as one would expect.
