The Ferrari Testarossa is an icon, a thoroughbred sports car out of a very select club of supercars. As the successor to the infamous 512BB, the Testarossa heralded a new era. That of supercars that combined top performance with practicality, comfort and reliability.
Above all, this is one piece of Italian passion!
No car enthusiast remains unmoved by this Italian gem of design and racing genes! The flat twelve-cylinder growls civilized, but impatient. Once the rev counter rises, the tone also does, to degenerate into a downright hellish melody when approaching the red zone. This is a sports car that only Italians can create, an experience you’ve always dreamed of!
The car we offer is a 512 TR, the more than splendid evolution of the original, so to speak. This version is widely regarded as the best and the most beautiful version of the Testarossa, because of its increased engine performance, better braking potential, more stable handling and more practical interior. Also aesthetically, this 512 TR is praised for its beautiful lines, at the same time sporty and elegant and still unmistakably a genuine Testarossa.
This original and matching numbers 512 TR was delivered new in Switzerland in March 1993, to be moved to France in 2015, to a Ferrari enthusiast near Toulouse. Shortly after purchase and with 92,500km on the clock, the car was entrusted to a renowned Ferrari specialist for an extensive review. In addition to the necessary maintenance work, the timing belts were replaced, a new clutch fitted and the gearbox revised with new synchro rings.
Mid 2017, the car was sold to the third and current Belgian owner, with a total mileage of just under 93,000 km at that time. The new owner in turn had some work carried out, including the restoration of the interior parts. Last year, the cylinder head gaskets have been replaced, together with new cam belts. Also the electrical circuit was thoroughly overhauled, so all controls function properly again.
Only 2,261 units of the 512 TR left the Ferrari factory in Maranello, between 1991 and 1994. Finding an example with excellent maintenance history is no easy task. After 28 years of life, only 96,000 km on the clock and an extensive documented history of work performed, this 512 TR shows excellent health.
This Italian masterpiece is ready for another adventure, in the hands of an enthusiast. On simple request, we will be happy to provide you with more information, as well as the necessary supporting documents and photos of the work performed.
