If you wanted a poster car in the 1980s, you bought a Lamroghini Countach. If you wanted one of the fastest, best driving cars in the world though, you bought the Ferrari Testarossa. A revival of the classic "red head" name, the original Testarossas were front engine racers with little to do with the flat-12, mid-engined GT road car that Ferrari produced in the 1980s. Still, the name was evocative enough to spur on sales, as was the classic shape. An evolution of the 512BBi, the Testarossa would take Ferrari all the way into the 1990s; and while by then it was a dated design eclipsed by more poster super cars, the appeal and classic design of the Testarossa still shines today. While the Countach can look almost vulgar in its excess, the Testarossa is a velvet hammer. This example is from mid-run and the first year of the "512TR":

Very hard to find. Only 32.550 miles. Very good condition. This car has always been stored indoors, the AC blows ice cold and hard even on the hottest day I can drive and keep cool.

I don’t have stock exhaust.all scheduled services and maintenance has been routinely done and it shows in the way this car drives and performs, as well as the aesthetic of the engine bay undercarriage and all suspension and brake parts. Replaced audio, new Boss radio video CD player with Bluetooth. Installed remote control door lock system. Installed aluminum brake and clutch and gas pedal.The books, manuals, and 3 keys.

These 512TRs are arguably the best looking of the breed; I'm not a fan of the 512 M that followed, though it was faster. This one looks lovely and is rare in double black, and the Speedline Mistral three piece wheels are just awesome and a perfect fit. With plenty of recent maintenance, this is certainly a strong example to look at and should likely command in the $100,000 region. While that may seem like a lot, my guess is clean examples of these won't be getting much cheaper anytime soon!
