Description

1988 - Ferrari Testarossa

French registration title

Only 30 013 kms certified
Car in very nice condition
Same owner since 17 years

Following on from the 512 BB, the Testarossa was an even more highly-developed rendering of the line of mid-engined berlinettas started by Ferrari with the 365 GT4 BB. Beneath the bodywork designed by Pininfarina, this model continued with the flat 12-cylinder engine mounted above the gearbox, as already seen in previous versions. A number of improvements, such as the cylinder heads with 4 valves per cylinder, increased the power to 390 bhp. Accelerating from 0 to 100 km in 5.3 secs and with a top speed of 290 kph, the Testarossa boasted a level of performance only matched by a tiny handful of exotic supercars. The model’s exceptional qualities ensured that demand for it was high and more than 7 000 were sold. This being one of the most impressive belinettas ever produced by Maranello, a Testarossa in such outstanding condition and with such a reasonable estimated price represents an opportunity not to be missed.

The Ferrari Testarossa that we present was first registered on December 6th 1988 and was bought by the current owner in April 2004. Our Testarossa was discovered in a classified ad in the newspaper Le Soir and was owned by a car dealer in Brussels, with 8,961 km on the odometer.
In very good condition, this car has obviously always been used conscientiously. The light beige Connolly leather upholstery is impeccable, as are the red carpets, the dashboard and the roof canopy. Externally, the various bodywork elements are very well aligned and the quality of the paintwork is of the highest quality. At the wheel, the car collector will always take care of the mechanics, respecting the warm-up times and, above all, scrupulously following the factory recommendations with regular maintenance at the official Monza Ferrari specialist in Belgium. The most recent one, costing more than €12,000, dates back to 11 January 2017 with the replacement of the belts, the adjustment of the injection, the replacement of the intake manifold seal, the cleaning of the brake system, the fuel tank and the replacement of all filters, fluids and spark plugs. Having covered just over 3,000 km since then, it now has a total of 30,013 km on the odometer.
This flagship model with the legendary V12 engine is distinguished by its condition and estimate. There is no doubt that it represents a very interesting and judicious purchase.
