Ferrari's brand-new Testarossa, the star of the 1984 Paris Motor Show, shocked the world at its premiere. It was a dramatic departure from the 512 BBi that preceded it, as its styling was angular and aggressive, yet its design was just as functional as it was attractive.
The new Testarossa not only offered a step forward in terms of styling, but Ferrari's new supercar also improved on all aspects of the outgoing Berlinetta Boxer models. The engine produced 40 more horsepower than that of the 512 BBi, helping the Testarossa accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 5.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 180 mph. Its dramatic side strakes that ran along the side of the car helped to channel air into the dual rear-mounted radiators, which kept both the engine and cabin from overheating. By 1988, the single "Flying Mirror" was replaced with more conventional dual mirrors, and the center lock wheels were changed for similar looking wheels with five bolts.
This particular example was supplied new to the USA by Ferrari Monterey,California in April of 1988. Finished in its original colours of Bianco with Tan leather interior. The car was imported to the U.K in 2017 where it is now registered. In September 2017 on arriving in the U.K the car underwent a major overhaul with H.R Owen Ferrari,London at the cost of over £13,000.00. Offered for sale with a detailed history folder including a copy of the original purchase invoice dated 30/04/1988.
