1988 Ferrari TestarossaSOLD

LHD - 6,000 Miles

See all the Images for this Car

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 superb example was delivered new to its first private owner, Mr Emile Vergan, in France in October 1988 via main dealer Charles Pozzi S.A. Specified in the classic combination of Rosso Corsa over a Nero Hide interior. Remarkably it remained in France having covered only 5,900 Miles from new until 2017, when it was subsequently purchased by its most recent keeper and imported into the United Kingdom.
Upon arrival in October 2017, it was brought DK Engineering to undergo a comprehensive inspection and service at circa 6,000 Miles. It has since covered less than 70 further miles and as such presents in an exceptional condition both cosmetically and mechanically. Accompanied by its original bookpack, books, tools and jack, this Testarossa is presented with full UK registration and is located in our showrooms just outside London and available to view immediately.
