Introduced in 1984 as a replacement for the Berlinetta Boxer, the Ferrari Testarossa became an icon of 1980s retro culture due to its radical design and significantly more premium interior, compared to other Maranello-built sports cars. The coupe soldiered on mostly unchanged until 1991, when it was replaced by the 512 TR.
Although it was presented as a new car, the 512 TR retained the Testarossa’s dramatic design language, as well as the flat-12 powerplant. Of course, improved internals made the 512 TR quicker and more powerful than its predecessor, while a revised weight distribution also made it more stable under full throttle.
Compared to its predecessor, the 512 TR was short lived, being produced for only three years (compared to the Testarossa’s seven-year run). As a result, the 512 TR was also built in significantly less numbers, with only 2,261 examples leaving the factory until 1994. This figure makes it rather scarce compared to the Testarossa which had a total production run of more than 7,100 units.
This immaculate Ferrari 512 TR was first registered in Germany on the 10th April 1992 and is in fabulous original condition throughout.
The current mileage of 39000 kms is verified by a stamped service book which is included in the cars history file. In 2015 a comprehensive inspection was executed by Ferrari specialists at a cost of €11,000. Attractively finished in Rosso Corsa with Black interior, the perfect addition to any collection or to be enjoyed with the 12-cylinder engine on full song on the open road.
