1988 Ferrari Testarossa

One owner from new


Rivalling Lamborghini’s Countach for presence, the Pininfarina-designed Testarossa succeeded brilliantly, the gill slats feeding air to its side-mounted radiators being one of the modern era’s most instantly recognisable – and widely copied – styling devices. A larger car than the 512BB – the increase in width being necessary to accommodate wider tyres – the Testarossa managed the trick of combining high downforce with a low coefficient of drag, its graceful body being notable for the absence of extraneous spoilers and other such devices. Despite the increase in size over the 512BB, the Testarossa was lighter than its predecessor, the body – its steel doors and roof excepted – being, somewhat unusually for a production Ferrari, of aluminium. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats, tilting steering wheel and plentiful leather. Unlike some of its rivals, the Testarossa possessed light controls and was relatively easy to drive, factors which, allied to its outstanding performance and stunning looks, contributed to an instant and sustained high level of demand.

Leaving Maranello in 1989, this stunning later model Testarossa has covered a mere 46,000 kilometres miles from new, at the hands of just one Italian owner. This fabulous supercar is said to be in good condition in all respects, and pleasingly still wears its factory paint from new.

Offered with its books and toolkit, and finished in the traditional combination of Rosso Corsa with a contrasting Nero leather interior, the Testarossa represents Pininfarina at its best – flamboyant yet futuristic – a true classic. Laissant Maranello en 1989, cette superbe modèle Testarossa a couvert à peine 46.000 kilomètres miles de nouveau, dans les mains d’un seul propriétaire italien. Cette supercar fabuleuse est dit être en bon état à tous égards, et plaisamment porte encore son usine de peinture de nouveau.


Livrée avec ses livres et boîte à outils, terminé dans la combinaison traditionnelle de Rosso Corsa avec un intérieur en cuir Nero contrastante, la Testarossa représente Pininfarina à son meilleur – flamboyant encore futuriste – un vrai classique.
