Known History

Delivered new in Italy, this Ferrari Testarossa shows a rare and original combination of colors that perfectly suits the car: a metallic grey body with red leather upholstery. It was bought in the Mantua region by its previous owner. He began by making a comprehensive restoration of the body, regaining its original beautiful color combo. In 2008, the conical torque was replaced and the gearbox overhauled by Maranello Service, in Italy. In 2015, the car received a full inspection and routine service at Forza Motor, Oss, in the Netherlands.

This was the year that our collector fell in love with this superb example. Wanting to have a car that ran perfectly, he sent it to the specialist at V12 TS autos in 2016, where a major mechanical service was carried out (engine removed, belts replaced, valve springs removed and valve stem seals replaced, valve clearances adjusted, hydraulic fluid flushed, air conditioning unit recharged and all fluids changed), for a cost of over 8 000 euros. The file with the car contains a duplicate service book that is stamped and up-to-date, and an owner's manual, along with a tool kit.

This is one of the nicest Testarossas that we have presented. A Monospecchio in its original colours, it is a lovely Ferrari to drive, with the added benefit of having been driven regularly, with 52 378 km on the clock. The car is well set up, idles well and has good oil pressure both cold and warm. Here is a genuine GT car capable of covering long distances in modern standards of comfort!

The design of the Testarossa is unique. A homage to the 1980s, the virile styling with its distinctive rear shape and the side air intake scoops exude excess and speed. Within the Testarossa family, we are presenting the rarest and most highly sought after version, as earliest versions so often are. This is one of the last examples built of the 'Monospecchio' (single mirror) with centre lock wheels. Just under 400 were produced of the most desirable member of a family with a highly evocative name.
