1990 Ferrari Testarossa

[ translate ]

Chassis No. ZFFSG17A0L0084190
The much-anticipated successor to the Berlinetta Boxer series of cars broke cover under the dazzling lights of the Lido Nightclub ahead of the 1984 Paris Salon. Ferrari's second mid-engine flagship was built upon the raw performance and breathtaking Pininfarina styling of its predecessor, albeit with an increased focus on refinement. Unlike the Boxer which was not sold new in the United States, the Testarossa was conceived as a world-market car from the outset and was therefore designed to be a well-rounded and overall more livable supercar.
Equipped with an evolution of the Boxer's 180-degree twelve-cylinder engine, the similarities ended there, as new side-mounted radiators addressed the previous car's heating issues while also dictating a dramatic side profile and a wide, squared-off rear end. Inside, ergonomics were vastly improved and standard luxury amenities including Connolly Autolux leather and air conditioning, which made the Testarossa one of the most comfortable supercars of the 1980s, with Paolo Murani of Automobilia calling it “A 300-kph living room.” Continuous improvements in the years following its release saw the revision of the suspension, steering column, shocks, and brakes to accommodate new five-bolt wheels for 1988, as well as the introduction of more modern KE-Jetronic fuel injection in 1989.
This desirable late-production Testarossa, chassis number 84190, comes from the penultimate model year of the original Testarossa, prior to the introduction of the facelifted 512 TR in 1992. As such, it benefits from numerous technical and ergonomic upgrades while retaining the unaltered Fioravanti-penned design. The accompanying CARFAX Vehicle History Report shows that this left-hand drive, US-market example spent time in Ohio in the late 1990s before being relocated to Pennsylvania and later Kentucky in the 2000s. In more recent years, the Ferrari returned to Ohio and spent time in Florida prior to its acquisition by the West Virginia-based consignor in 2023.
In December 2020, showing 19,006 miles, the Testarossa was treated to a major engine-out service at a cost of over $6,900 which included new timing belts and tensioner bearings, spark plugs, cam seals and gaskets, rebuilding the water pump, draining the fuel tank, changing the fluids, and more. With less than 800 miles travelled since this comprehensive service, this superb Rosso Corsa over Nero Testarossa is offered with just 19,749 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging. Presented in highly original condition, recent paint meter readings support that the Ferrari still wears its splendid factory Rosso Corsa finish. The Tipo F110 Testarossa remains one of the most coveted and widely recognizable models of the marque for its era-defining styling, superb drivability, and legendary performance. With its recent engine-out service and excellent presentation, chassis 84190 is a fine example of the breed.
