With the exception of the limited-run F50, Enzo and LaFerrari, the Testarossa series cars (including the 512 TR and F512 M) are the last of the 12-cylinder mid-engined Ferraris.

This now-legendary Ferrari was launched with an astonishing showcase event at the Lido Club in Paris in October 1984, and it has been an icon of Italian performance and passion ever since.

The 390bhp produced by the fantastic flat-12 runs through a five-speed manual gearbox, and can propel the car up to 180mph.

This particular Ferrari Testarossa is a truly immaculate UK right-hand-drive example of the later twin-mirror car. It is in outstanding mechanical and cosmetic condition, with magnificent paintwork and pristine five-bolt wheels.

The Testarossa was a sales hit for Ferrari globally, but fewer than 400 twin-mirror cars were ever imported to the UK, making genuine right-hand-drive examples a rare sight indeed. Rarer still are cars with total mileage this low and presented in such fine condition.

Known History

This Testarossa remains in its original factory colours of Ferrari racing red (Rosso Corsa) with the sumptuous leather seats, dashboard and carpets finished in black.

 

This beautiful Ferrari Testarossa, chassis number 83836, was completed in Maranello in late 1989 and delivered to the UK in January 1990. It was delivered to its first owner in central London by Maranello Sales Limited of Egham, Surrey. The original stamped service book that accompanies the car shows the initial free service carried out by Maranello Concessionaires in May 1990 at 1300 miles. Exactly one year later, the car was serviced at 6174 miles by a specialist in the East Midlands.

 

In December 1991, the car was purchased by its second owner. The original sales invoice from Graypaul Ferrari is still in the car’s history file, which records the mileage of 8166 by this point in time.

 

The Testarossa remained with this owner for nearly 20 years, although a change of keeper was registered when the car passed on to the gentleman’s wife. It was subsequently purchased by the fourth keeper in the summer of 2010, when the mileage was still incredibly low, reading just 8460 miles from new.

 

Within a month of purchase, the Testarossa was taken to a Ferrari main dealer for a full service, renewal of the timing and auxiliary belts, and replacement cambelt tensioner bearings. Over the next three years, the owner drove the car sparingly, adding just 1000 miles to the total.

 

This remarkable Testarossa retains all of its original accessories and documentation, including a complete leather owner’s pouch with handbook, dealer directory and stamped service book, original tool roll and jacking kit, and two original keys. The history file documents the low mileage, not to mention a complete ownership record from new. This beautiful car even retains the exceptionally rare typewritten notes given to all the first owners of Testarossas by Maranello Concessionaires.

 

This Ferrari Testarossa is a truly magnificent example of perhaps the most iconic supercar of all time. An original UK car with genuine low mileage, complete with all its original books, tools and paperwork; this Testarossa drives beautifully and is presented in immaculate condition.
