$150,000 - $200,000


Desirable early-production “Monospecchio”
Accompanied by rare Schedoni fitted luggage set
Finished in the classic combination of Rosso Corsa over tan leather

Unveiled to the world the night before the opening of the 1984 Paris Motor Show at the famed Lido nightclub on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Ferrari Testarossa would become nothing short of legend. With a 0–60 mph time of just over five seconds and a top speed of near 180 mph, its performance and dramatic styling had enthusiasts falling head over heels for Ferrari’s newest flat-12 creation. It soon became the poster child for a generation with numerous appearances in movies, music videos, and television shows—most notably, a starring role in Miami Vice alongside Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas.

The Testarossa offered here is a desirable early-production example, with a single mirror on the driver’s side, mounted high on the A-pillar—dubbed the “flying mirror” or “Monospecchio,” in Ferrari parlance, and widely considered more attractive than later versions. In later versions of the Testarossa, the attractive center-lock wheels were replaced with similar versions but with a five-bolt pattern.

This Testarossa is finished in the classic color combination of Rosso Corsa over tan leather and comes with a rare Schedoni fitted leather luggage set. The Testarossa also includes service records dating back to 1999, including recent maintenance performed in October 2018. At that time the clutch was adjusted and a new starter relay installed. Along with the fitted luggage set, the car is accompanied by an owner’s manual in its leather pouch.

To this day, the Testarossa remains one of the most recognizable and beloved Ferrari models ever produced. It is an icon of 1980s styling and performance, and it is just as exciting to drive today, even by current standards. Beautifully presented, this Testarossa is an exceptional example throughout.

Please note that due to California emissions, this vehicle must be sold to a dealer or out-of-state resident.
