By the time the Ferrari Testarossa’s production run came to an end in 1991, Modena’s flat-12-powered wedge had left an indelible mark on popular culture; with 7,177 built between 1984 and that final year, it was also, by Ferrari standards, a tremendous sales success. But if this bold Pininfarinia-styled supercar is arresting in any color, including the classic (and relatively common) Rosso, it is particularly striking—and rare—when finished in white.
This 1991 Ferrari Testarossa in Bianco over a Beige and brown interior is one such car. Delivered new to Lake Forest Sports cars of Lake Forest, Illinois, this car has had just three private owners from new and was kept by its first owner until 1996. It was then purchased by its second owner who retained the car until 2016, after which it entered a private collection in South Florida. Through this chain of ownership, the car has accrued just 6,890 miles from new.
Commensurate with this remarkably low mileage, this Testarossa is in excellent condition inside and out, including the exterior paint and panel fit. It is believed to be all original paint and meters consistently around the whole car from 4.2-5.6. Sensitive areas such as the low front splitter and undercarriage display only minor, expected wear. The interior likewise shows minor signs of use, with supple leather throughout, clean door cards, and a tight-fitting, shrink-and crack-free dash.
The engine bay, too, is highly presentable, with surfaces—including the eye-catching red crackle finish on the cylinder heads of the car’s acclaimed 4.9-liter flat-12 engine—in excellent condition. Currently fitted with a cleanly installed Tubi Style exhaust, the car is accompanied by its original exhaust system.
A well-preserved final production year example of a Ferrari icon, this uncommon Bianco 1991 Testarossa is a low-mileage time capsule example—fitting for a vehicle so instantly evocative of an era. The car is offered with original owner’s manuals, warranty card, and literature in a leather folio, historical photos, partial service records (from October 1996 onward), spare wheel and tire, tools, and original exhaust system.
