1992 Ferrari 512 TR Testarossa
It is difficult to overstate the impact made by the Ferrari Testarossa at its Paris debut in October 1984. A bold statement in every respect, rom its name recalling Modena’s all-conquering sports racers of the late 1950s to its Pininfarina styling replete with swooping strakes along it flanks channeling airflow into massive radiators at the rear, he Testarossa was an instant icon. Then again, nly a statement like the Testarossa could succeed the Berlinetta Boxer, nother Pininfarina design introduced in 1973.
While often compared to Lamborghini’s various Countach derivatives of the era, he Testarossa was a much newer and more advanced design throughout. In addition to its muscular bodywork that declared its purity of purpose, errari’s new supercar earned praise for its remarkable drivability and passenger comfort. In fact, n a recent classic-car buyer’s guide, he UK’s Octane editors aptly described the Testarossa as “a remarkably user-friendly supercar,” one capable of “mighty performance delivered in a smooth manner by a sweet and free-revving flat-12.”
Sired directly from Ferrari’s 312 T Grand Prix racing engine design dating back to 1975, he Testarossa’s mid-mounted 4.9-liter engine featured Bosch K-Jetronic electronic fuel injection and four valves per cylinder, elivering 390 horsepower and making the Testarossa the world’s most powerful sports car at introduction. While demanding few compromises from its occupants, he Testarossa continues to deliver blistering performance – even by today’s standards – with acceleration from rest to 60 mph in just over 5.0 seconds, he ¼-mile in 12.9 seconds, nd top speeds approaching 180 mph. In fact, he Testarossa was the world’s fastest production car throughout its 11-year production run ending in 1995.
The Testarossa’s handling was equally brilliant, ith skidpad performance of 0.90 G. Based upon a race-bred and rigid tubular frame with fully independent suspension including front and rear anti-roll bars, he Testarossa’s underpinnings included precise rack-and-pinion steering and large four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Blessed with truly great road feel and Ferrari’s classic gated shift lever controlling the 5-speed manual gearbox, he Testarossa seamlessly blends the classic and modern Ferrari generations and continues to deliver an exceptional drive today. The 512 TR debuted in 1991 and heralded a power increase to 428 horsepower at 6,750 engine revolutions with comprehensive updates to the engine, riveline, rakes, ngine mounting, ires, nd interior to match. Pininfarina also contributed body updates that better integrated the spoilers and engine cover, long with other body updates providing more of a familial resemblance to the design of Ferrari’s contemporary V-8 348. By 1992, 12 TR pricing was from US$212,160.
This beautiful 1992 Ferrari 512 Testarossa is finished in Rosso Corsa with Tan leather upholstery and has only 14,500 miles of use. In addition to its powerful ‘flat-12’ engine and 5-speed gearbox, his 512 TR is offered with complete books and the tool kit.

As offered, t stands ready to deliver an incredible experience with an amazing soundtrack from its race-bred, id-mounted flat-12 engine.
