Ferrari unveiled the new Testarossa (F110) at the 1984 Paris Motor Show, marking the end of production of the legendary Boxer that had been the flagship 12-cylinder Ferrari model for the previous ten years. Styled by Pininfarina, the Testarossa (Red Head) paid homage to the great 1950's sports racers that originally bore that name, referring to their bright red rocker box covers.
The mid-engine, rear wheel drive configuration allowed the centre of gravity to be positioned in the middle of the car resulting in the weight distribution being 40/60 front and rear, almost an ideal balance in terms of road holding and steering response. The Testarossa was larger than its Boxer predecessor, some 6 inches wider and 2.5 inches longer at 2550mm, allowing for more leg room and combined with the raised roof height in the cabin made progress a little more comfortable, provided you could see the corners of the car, which you couldn't.
Production of the 512TR commenced in 1991 with deliveries to customers in 1992 and was effectively a re-engineered Testarossa, although Ferrari were keen that it was regarded as a new model. As well as the slightly less dramatic styling and a few tweaks to the detailing the main changes were chassis and engine related. The power of the 4.9 Litre, 48 valve, flat 12 was increased to 428 bhp from 380 with a similar improvement in torque, and with the benefit of a 30kg weight reduction on the earlier model, 0-60 times fell from 5.3 to 4.9 seconds. 
This particular left-hand drive 512TR was supplied on 1st April 1992 to a Mr.Stellato in Milan by Ferrari Main Dealer Crepaldi Auto S.P.A. The car is finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero Black leather interior, and upon opening the door to the cockpit the 'new car smell' is still evident. Serviced in April 1992 after 435km, the car was obviously infrequently used as the next service was carried out by SportCar S.N.C. of Milan in September 2015 at 7,930km. An invoice in the file for 3,400 Euros documents this, most recent, service which did include all the belts being changed.
Supplied with its full original leather book pack, spare keys, original toolkit, an MoT until 12th October 2016, and a UK V5c, this 512TR now shows only 8,308km on the odometer, which is the equivalent of 5,157 miles, and is possibly one of the finest conditioned 512 TRs we've seen for some time. Low mileage examples such as this rarely come to market, and this stunning car represents the perfect opportunity for any Prancing Horse enthusiast.
