Description
The Ferrari Testarossa is a 12-cylinder mid-engine sports car manufactured by Ferrari, which went into production in 1984 as the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer. The Testarossa is a two-door coupe with a fixed roof that premiered at the 1984 Paris Auto Show. All versions of the Testarossa had the power fed through the wheels from a rear-mounted, five-speed manual transmission. The Rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout (engine between the axles but behind the cabin) keeps the centre of gravity in the middle of the car, which increases stability and improves the car's cornering ability, and thus results in a standing weight distribution of 40% front: 60% rear.

The Testarossa name, which means "red head" in Italian, comes from the red-painted cam covers on the flat-12 engine. The double entendre with a red-headed woman was intentional - Ferrari and Pininfarina regularly use descriptive terms related to a female's body when describing the style of their automobiles.

MotoeXotica is proud to offer this exquisite, 1985 Ferrari Testarossa that we purchased out of a prominent automotive collection out of Florida. Just like any other piece of fine Italian art, this Testarossa has withstood the test of time and looks just as incredible as the day it hit the showroom floor. This is just not some regular Testarossa - this particular car has been owned by the same gentleman and meticulously maintained for over the past twenty years! This car even still has the original, leather covered Ferrari manuals, the extremely rare original Ferrari tool kit and a custom car cover. You truly must see this Ferrari to believe it!

Just as the translation says, this Ferrari is finished in Russo Red and is in show room condition. The body is solid, sound and straight. The paint is absolutely pristine - it shines bright and has an incredible luster. Even the new weather-stripping looks fantastic! This car is absolutely breathtaking in every sense of the way.

Inside the Ferrari, you'll find black leather interior, complete with Ferrari headrests that look simply stunning. It is easy to see that this car was extremely loved and it shows in every way. The seats show no major imperfections or tacking, same with the dashboard and headliner. Originally, the Testarossa came with black carpeted floors and the previous owner upgraded the carpets to the beautiful red carpet with the black dancing horse on each floorboard, which really puts the cherry on top. The handsome and complete center console houses all the car's controls from the AC to the power windows.

Under the rear deck, you will find a powerful 4.9L Ferrari Colombo Flat 12, mid mounted engine. Lubricated with a dry sump system, this 301 cubic inch engine can turn out up to 390 horsepower and 361 pounds of torque! The previous owner previously had a new computer, new fuse box and had all brand new front suspension installed making the car exceptionally easy to maneuver and handle, even at speeds upwards of 180mph!Putting the ponies to the pavement is a 5-speed transmission, making this Testarossa a blast to drive.

The replaced and upgraded Ferrari wheels look incredible and give the car a slightly more aggressive look. It's very rare to find such a beautiful and documented Ferrari Testarossa in the condition you see here. This car would make an incredible addition to any car collection as it is in fantastic condition and is a very fun car to drive. The VIN on this beauty is ZFFSA17A2F0059135 and the current mileage shows 6,929. The odometer was replaced at 14,000 miles per the previous owner. Just had full, engine out service performed by GLB Motorworks here in St. Louis, as well as a new clutch installed. The Ferrari comes with a clean Florida title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
