Guide price: £95000 - £110000. <ul style="color: #012168; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px; background-color: #fdfefe;"><li>UK supplied RHD car</li><li>Low mileage only 27,000 miles</li><li>Comprehensive history file</li><li>Over £15,000 spent on last service</li><li>Classic colour combination</li></ul><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"> </p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;">When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984, it was regarded as possibly the best car they had ever built but, whilst the design was spectacular, it was not considered to be as sensually beautiful as numerous GT Ferraris of the past. As a complete departure, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body shape, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive side 'strakes' unlike anything else seen in the post-war period. The name 'Testarossa', literally Redhead, became synonymous with Ferrari sports racing cars in the 50s and 60s and was resurrected at the launch of this new model at the Porte de Versailles in 1984.</p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">Housing a 4.9-litre V12 engine producing 390bhp, the car was capable of a respectable 0-60 mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 196mph. Produced between 1984 and 1991, some 7,177 Testarossas were made in total. Once again, time showed Pininfarina's design to be durable, and throughout the eighties, the distinctive 'strakes' were echoed in other design disciplines from cars to kettles.</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">However, although the design may have seemed to be 'of the moment', the Testarossa proved itself to be a well-built car, and despite its 'Eiger-rivaling' list price, turned out to be Ferrari's most successful model ever.</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">Today it's a design icon, symbolic of eighties culture, and despite a period in the "boondocks", its popularity is returning rapidly. It's not a surprise really since the Testarossa offers a rare package of serious performance, practicality, and reasonable comfort and although heavy at low speeds, its confidence-inspiring handling at high speed becomes almost addictive.</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;"><br /></span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">Offered here is a UK-supplied right-hand drive 1991 Ferrari Testarossa first registered in the UK on 16th April 1991. This Prancing Horse is finished in Rosso with a sumptuous Grigio leather cabin and Nero carpets throughout. Purchased by our vendor in 2014, the maintenance records that accompany the car show it has been well looked-after throughout its years. </span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">In March 2017 the car was sent to well-respected Ferrari specialists Nick Cartwright where it received a full overhaul. Work at this time included:</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Removal of engine and gearbox and cambelts replaced</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Cam covers re-crackled</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Engine chemically cleaned</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- New engine oil and filter, gearbox and differential oil.</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Rear suspension removed, cleaned, re-painted where necessary and reassembled</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Braking system checked, new brake fluid and bleed out system</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Air-conditioning recharged</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- Engine bay fully cleaned and car machine polished</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">- New MOT</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"><span style="font-family: Whitney, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 13px;">The car is accompanied by a comprehensive invoice from the aforementioned specialist fully detailing the work carried out, in exchange for £15,600. Supplied with a UK V5c and fresh MOT in the original leather book pack, this stunning Testarossa is now showing only 27,000 miles on the odometer and is a truly exceptional example of one of the finest supercars from the 1980s. A must for any collector of landmark Ferraris.</span></span></p><p style="font-size: 13px; margin: 0px 0px 0.5em; font-family: Whitney, sans-serif; background-color: #fdfefe;"> </p>
