Also comes with the full tool set in their vinyl tool roll, the jack kit and the jack bag with the tow hook. Has the original “thin line” spare wheel and tire. Copies of all service records available by PDF, a no-stories Carfax is on file.

The Testarossa was introduced at the 1984 Paris Auto Show as a formidable competitor to Lamborghini’s Countach thanks, in part, to its all-new 4-valve heads putting out 428 bhp at 6300 rpm. Motivated by the four valve version of Ferrari’s horizontally opposed twelve cylinder engine, the Testarossa was quick and made all the right sounds. Stylistically the Testarossa stunned the world with its avant garde styling. Long, low and wide, the Testarossa appeared even more so thanks to the extensive use of horizontal slatting, a feature that would be replicated both on other Ferraris and on many other lesser cars. Thanks to its user friendly cabin and creature comforts the Testarossa was very plush with leather seats, rear shelf, headliner, and visors. Beneath these striking features was a surprisingly organic and handsome form that remains as arresting today as it was over thirty years ago. The trunk is reasonably sized and the car very comfortable and easy to drive, making it an ideal way to cover long distances at high speeds in comfort. Top speed was good for 180 mph while 0-60 took just 5.2 seconds. Today the Testarossa is undoubtedly the bargain of the flat-12 Ferrari world, offering stunning good lucks, unique styling, acres of torque and effortless performance at a great price!
