Description:

1992 Ferrari Testarossa 512TR

This is a gorgeous example of the 512 TR Testarossa! What is more iconic than a Red on Tan V12 Ferrari? Having accumulated a mere 17,700 miles since new it is in overall terrific condition. This is the one to add to your collection.

It's livery is all original in Rossa Corsa (Ferrari Red). Having no history of accidents or damage, he paint is all original and reveals a history of affection and use. The front has a number of very fine chips that one would expect to find after 17,700 miles. This, f course, s far preferred to a motorcar with a sorted history of accidents or neglect (and, od forbid, mysterious repaint!).

Inside the passenger cabin is the supple tan leather one expects to find in the ultimate Italian performance coupe. The leather is in overall excellent condition with a few areas reflecting limited wear. These are highlighted in detail in the high resolution photos and inspection video.

The drivetrain is fantastic! The gorgeous tones of the roaring V12 are accentuated through the custom PowerTone exhaust system that was specifically designed for this particular car. It is unique and wonderful! The original exhaust is included in the sale.

We love the complete set of original tools, ooks and records for this Testarossa. They are all enveloped in the soft and durable Italian saddle leather.

Background-

Ferrari and Pininfarina designed the Testarossa to be larger than its predecessor. For instance, he Testarossa was half a foot wider than the Boxer. This resulted in an increased wheelbase that stretched about 64mm (2.5in) to 2,550mm (100in) which was used to accommodate luggage in a carpeted storage space under the front forward-opening hood.The increase in length created extra storage space behind the seats in the cabin.

The design came from Pininfarina. The design team at Pininfarina consisted of Ian Cameron, uido Campoli, iego Ottina and Emanuele Nicosia. With little surprise, hey were led by design chief Leonardo Fioravanti, he designer of many contemporary Ferraris. The design was originated by Nicosia, ut the guidance of Fioravanti was equally important.

Being a trained aerodynamist, ioravanti applied his know-how to set the aerodynamics layout of the car. This meant the large side intakes were not only a statement of style but actually functional – they drew clean air to cool the side radiators and then went upward and left the car through the ventilation holes located at the engine lid and the tail. As a result, he Testarossa did not need a rear spoiler like Lamborghini's Countach yet produced zero lift at its rear axle. The aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.36 was also significantly better than the Lamborghini's 0.42.

The Testarossa had twin radiators in the back with the engine instead of a single radiator up-front. In conjunction the strakes provided cool air to the rear-mounted side radiators, hus keeping the engine from overheating. The strakes also made the Testarossa wider at the rear than in the front, hus increasing stability and handling. Ferrari improved traction by adding 10-inch-wide alloy rear wheels.

The 512 TR sports a 4.9litre (4,943cc or 301.6cuin) Ferrari V12 longitudinally mid mounted. Each cylinder has four valves, ith forty-eight valves total, ubricated via a dry sump system, nd a compression ratio of 10.00:1. These combine to provide a maximum torque of 362 ft lbs at 5500 rpm and a maximum power of 428hp at 6750 rpm.
