1989 Ferrari Testarossa
When Ferrari introduced the Testarossa in Paris in 1984 it was probably the best car Ferrari had ever built, but while the design was spectacular, it was not as sensually beautiful as numerous Ferraris before it. Instead, Pininfarina had designed a modern, aerodynamic and efficient body, immediately recognisable by its very distinctive 'side strakes' unlike anything seen before.
Once again time showed Pininfarina's design to be ahead of its time and through the eighties this styling cue was copied in countless contexts. Simultaneously the Testarossa proved itself as a well-built car and despite its towering high price from new, turned out to be Ferrari's most successful model ever.
Today, it has become an Eighties design icon and recently its popularity has grown quite considerably: It's no wonder since the Testarossa offers a unique package of powerful performance, practicality and comfort and that groundbreaking design that works equally well on the highway as in an exhibition of contemporary art - or the owner's garage.
This fine example is in the best colour combination for the Testarossa, Rosso Corsa with biscuit interior. The car was delivered new in Hamburg, Germany on June 27 1989 and six years later was sold to Norway. During an engine-out service in 2001, the garage unfortunately made a mistake when connecting the radiators and the engine subsequently failed. A new engine was fitted at the kilometer reading of 78.000, and therefore this engine has only run 34.000 kilometers of the total 112.000 now reading on the odometer.
The car has resided with the last owner in Norway since 2007. The bodywork is straight and solid with nice even panel gaps, the paintwork is shining and the interior has stood up very well over the years, testament to the inherent build quality of the Testarossa. It has just received a cambelt and oil service and is absolutely ready to use.
