Known History

Perhaps one of Ferrari’s most famous production models was the Testarossa (literally translated “Red Head”

for its famously red colored valve head covers) an homage to the famous 1957 World Sportscar Championship winning 250 GT Testaroassas which solidified Ferrari as a premier sports car manufacturer.

 

The Pininfarina designed Testarossa was dramatic, long and wide with a 4.9 liter V12 mid-engine and became the flagship of the Ferrari brand from 1984 until 1996 under different guises but staying true to its original wedge shaped design which served as the basis for other models to follow, particularly its smaller V8 engined brother the 348.

 

The Testarossa made its public debut at the 1984 Paris Auto Show and immediately reset the design standards for V12 sports cars across the segment, a two-door coupe with mid-mounted engine and gear box out the back keeping the center of gravity near the middle of the car, five speed manual transmission in the familiar Ferrari gated shifter, the signature straked door mounted air intakes and, of course, well look at them, they’re just magnificent cars with wonderful presence which remain a Ferrari icon to this day and everything a Ferrari should be, big, low slung, dramatic and V12.

 

There were three iterations of the model, the original Testarossa, the 512TR and 512M,

nearly 10,000 produced in all which at the time was the most widely produced car Ferrari ever made.

In 1992 the Testarossa was re-introduced as the 512TR (for Testa Rossa) making its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show as a completely new car with improved weight distribution (41% front, 59% rear) and drivablity, the production run ending two years later with the introduction of the 512M.

 

These models represented the last of the V12 boxer engine series produced by Ferrari as the cars were replaced by the brilliant 550 Maranello which carried on as a front engine V12 design.

 

For our purposes, we will concentrate on the 512TR model version. The TR was produced from 1991 to 1994 with 2,261 examples rolling out of the Maranello factory. The TR was a slight departure from the Testarossa receiving an extensively reworked

engine featuring Nikasil liners, Bosch engine management system, larger intake valves and revised exhaust system. All of these improvements resulted in a broader power curve, better acceleration and of course, more high-end power.

 

Likewise, in order to address driver complaints about shifting, a single plate clutch, sliding ball bearings and more comfortable angle was added. Improved braking was also addressed with the addition of cross drilled front rotors. More responsive steering, lower profile tires and new shock settings along with placement of the engine and gearbox improved the center of gravity for better balance for an overall better handling car.

 

Inside the 512TR was updated with the center console separated from the dashboard

with climate controls moved for easier access. Pininfarina reworked the body for better integration of the spoilers and engine cover moving it more in line with the appearance of the 348.

 

Ferrari 512TR production numbers:

 

The normal production of the 512TR started slowly in April 1991. For a long period the factory built the Testarossa and the 512TR simultaneously and they were stocking the 512 TRs. The first cars (mainly US versions) went to clients in December 1991.

 

Total production was 2,261 cars, with serial numbers in the range of 89100 to 99743.

 

A total of 408 examples were delivered to North America.

 

US Model Years (approximate serial number ranges):

Year USA Model Year s/n

1992 89472 - 93566

1993 93602 - 96731

1994 96742 - 98741

 

Our 512TR (#95077) in Giallo/black, is a 1993 four owner example with only 8,741 miles. The car is completely stock, fully serviced and comes with tools.
