1986 Ferrari Testarossa (Monospecchio)

Interested parties should note that this is a library image. Pictures of this vehicle will be added shortly.At the Paris Salon of 1984, Ferrari presented the successor to the legendary BB512 after nearly ten years of production. Called Testarossa, referring to the legendary Le Mans winning car, it is again the work of Pininfarina. The Testarossa is equipped with a 12-cylinder boxer engine inaugurated in 1972 on the 365 GT4 BB. The capacity is increased to 4942cc and power increased to 390hp at 6300rpm, at the time of its release, the Testarossa was a rare series of cars to flirt with a 190mph top speed. For the first two years, the Testarossa was fitted with a single mirror on the drivers A-pillar and knock-off wheel hubs. Arguably the most collectible version of the Testarossa, the original single mirror or โ€˜monospecchioโ€™ Testarossa marked a turning point for Ferrari and was a huge leap in style and technology when launched in late 1984 from its predecessor the 512BBi and became an instant icon and now a modern classic.
This left hand drive Testarossa is finished in the traditional colour combination of Rosso Corsa Red with tan leather interior. These fabulous cars are every bit as exciting to drive as they are to look at; the V12 engine is responsive and offers a great note from the exhaust. The slick gear change accentuates the drivability of one Ferrariโ€™s greatest ever designs. This early example is a pre-ABS and Monospecchio car making it one of the most desirable Testarossa of the era. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this Ferrari appears to be realistically estimated.
