For sale by auction on Saturday 12 March 2016 with Historics at Brooklands. Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. Weybridge. Surrey. Call 01753 639170
Introduced at the 1984 Paris Salon. the Testarossa caused a
sensation. The functionality of its Pininfarina styled bodywork was
disguised by a wealth of flamboyant and futuristic detailing.
Developed with the aid of a wind tunnel. it combined a low drag
coefficient with impressive negative lift characteristics. The
first twelve-cylinder Ferrari to be marketed in America for a
decade. the new flagship was of vital importance to Maranello.
Although it was built around a similar tubular steel matrix. it
retained the same mid-engined layout as its Berlinetta Boxer
forebears. The Testarossa was more than just a simple evolution. br/>its use of galvanised steel for the doors. roof and bulkheads
promised greater longevity. while a longer wheelbase. wider track
and revised all-round double-wishbone coil-over suspension promoted
better handling. As well as greater interior space. drivers also
benefitted from an adjustable steering column. re-profiled seats
and air conditioning. Mounting the drive train and rear suspension
on a separate sub-frame meant better noise insulation and easier
servicing. The switch from a large front-mounted radiator to twin
units housed in front of each rear resulted in more efficient
cooling and less heat soak. Extensively reworked. the 4942cc. br/>flat-12 developing some 390bhp and 362lbft of torque. it was mated
to a five-speed manual gearbox but kept in check by twelve-inch
discs all-round and a limited slip differential. Highly praised by
the contemporary motoring press. Autocar magazine found the
Testarossa capable of 181mph and 0-60mph in 5. 3 seconds.

Supplied new by H. R. Owen and accompanied by its original order. br/>this Testarossa was first registered in January 1989. Offered in
the classic Ferrari combination of Rossa Corsa red with tan leather
interior. this fabulous righthand drive example has covered a mere
35. 00 miles and is accompanied by Ferrari and specialist service
history. Ready for a new owner. the vendor has had this example
serviced just this January by NVS Hyper cars. The car comes with an
MoT test certificate valid until December 2016. The history file is
extensive with many invoices throughout its ownership from
Maranello of Egham. H. R. Owen. Lancaster Ferrari and TDH classics.
It is supplied with the original stamped maintenance book and user
manuals. Having been part of a larger collection this example has
been dry stored and well kept for the last eight years. A very
collectable example of the ever popular Pininfarina styled icon
with lower than average mileage and a strong maintenance record to
boot.
