1990 Ferrari Testarossa
The Ferrari Testarossa defined an entire generation of automobile design. As iconic as MTV and shoulder pads, but with exponentially more timeless style for the long haul, the “redhead” quickly became the best-selling 12-cylinder in Ferrari’s history and its collectible value is only beginning its meteoric rise today. With less than 5,000 miles on the odometer, this ridiculously fresh, all-original example might as well be a dealership demo. Having had only two owners and a recent, engine-out Ferrari dealership servicing, this pristine 1990 Ferrari Testarossa is as new as you’re going to get without hopping into Marty McFly’s DeLorean to time travel.
Quintessential to the iconography of a generation, the Ferrari Testarossa changed everything when it debuted at the Lido Night Club during the 1984 Paris Motor Show. Its evocative angular wedge physique and daring side strakes captured the pulse and energy of the Eighties and would usher in a dozen-year production run and the most successful 12-cylinder engine Ferrari ever envisioned. It reveals Pininfarina bolstered form with function in every detail. The iconic egg-slicer side strakes were actually implemented to assuage an American law against open side intakes where the side radiators of the powertrain lurked. The strakes were brilliantly implemented into the bodacious body and the red vixen’s most famous styling feature was born. The body’s sleek wedge flowed through to an alluring wider rear end, which allowed for enhanced stability and handling for the mid-engine placement and the result was an aesthetic masterpiece. The style was matched with ample substance beneath the unmistakable body. The 4.9-litre, flat-12-cylinder engine delivered 385 horsepower and 361-lb-ft of torque, which screamed across the blacktop at a top speed of 180 miles per hour and delivered a blistering performance of 0 to 60 in only 5.2 seconds. The front and rear independent suspension with unequal-length wishbones allowed the car to practically corner like it was on rails and halt on cue with four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. It has become much more than the embodiment of an era; it has evolved into a timeless classic that’s even more desirable today than it was the moment it rolled out of Maranello.
This incredibly well-kept, all-original 1990 Ferrari Testarossa is finished in classic Rossa Corsa paint over rich, tan Connolly leather interior and is equipped with a rare six-piece collection of Schedoni leather luggage for the pinnacle in Italian luxury. The current owner purchased this car from the original owner and has continued its unparalleled stewardship. This Testarossa boasts a shockingly low 4,148 original miles and is truly one of the most pristine all-original examples in existence. Its classic Rossa Corsa body bears fabulous original, factory paintwork and still has its Ferrari ‘original painting’ sticker affixed inside. Handled with kid gloves for the entirety of its pampered life, it has never endured a wreck and only bares a whisper of patina to its all-original paint and Connolly leather upholstery. The cockpit is adorned with classic tan Connolly leather accented with deep brown leather around the dash and instrument panel and black leather for the three-spoke, Ferrari-badged steering wheel. The beige carpeting is original to the car and although it shows slight foxing of its age, it is without stains and the mats are vividly crested with Ferrari’s red prancing horse. This ready-to-enjoy, low mileage example has undergone an extensive engine-out Ferrari dealership servicing, has been equipped with new tires for its original, Ferrari-badged, five-star alloy wheels, and is firing on all twelve cylinders. Ferrari Classiche Certified with matching numbers and boasting its original title and window sticker, this is one of the finest, all-original Ferrari Testarossas, and represents an unbelievable opportunity to add a wholly intact example of the prancing horse’s most popular 12-cylinder to a world-class stable of supercars.
