- Monospecchio, monodado, the rarest of Testarossas
- Followed history
- Very low mileage
- One of less than 300 of the very first series
For over 10 years, the 365 GTB4 "Berlinetta Boxer", followed by the 512 BB, had their reign as Ferrari's flagship sports car, but in 1984 it was time to develop a successor. Faithful to its traditional coachbuilder, Ferrari entrusted Pininfarina with the design of the new Testarossa, while maintaining the architecture of the engine, a flat 12. The rocker covers were painted a bright shade of red, allowing for the resurrection of the famous patronyme "Testa Rossa", symbolic of the sporting success in the 1950s. With almost 400bhp reaching almost 300 km/h top speed and its breathtaking design, this powerful and comfortable Grand Tourer seduced immediately at its presentation.
The car on offer, purchased new in Genoa, has covered only 41,000 km and has never had an accident. Its first owner kept the car until 1998, the second until 2005. The car, whose body and the leather interior was recently under work, has also been the subject of a mechanical service: the timing belts, the water pump and the clutch have been changed. The gearbox, a critical element of these cars, works perfectly well. This Testarossa 'Monospecchio', first and rarest version, is a great opportunity to seize quickly before prices start climbing rapidly. Remember that production of these very first series was limited to less than 300 units...
