First registration 09.1987
Ferrari Classiche certified
Swiss road registration with veteran entry
The all-time icon of 1980s sports car design not in red, but in Grigio Ferro Metallizzato – fewer than 100 cars were delivered in this color worldwide. The masterpiece of Pininfarina designer Leonardo Fioravanti reflects its bold contours in itself. You can’t get more revolutionary design in car building than this. There will never be another Ferrari so unmistakable. This is not just a thrilling sports car, but a driving sculpture.
Testarossa chassis no. 73875 was certified by Ferrari Classiche in November 2020. Originality and perfect condition are thus officially confirmed after negligent examination by Ferrari.
The certification was preceded by a comprehensive major service at Nicki Hasler, Basel, with documented costs of more than CHF 15’000 at km 66’800. New Michelin Rétro tires were mounted and the car was newly registered as a veteran.
A Capristo stainless steel exhaust system (original available) provides a beguiling engine sound, not loud but sonorous and throaty.
This Testarossa is pure driving pleasure, but also a value investment with potential.
At the Motor Show in Paris in October 1984, the glorious Testarossa returned, as a descendant of the 512 BBi. Pininfarina’s design broke with tradition while being both stunning and innovative. The side air intakes were larger than those on the previous model. This led to the introduction of the side planks that would soon become the Testarossa’s trademark.
The car’s name, which means “red head” in Italian, derives from the red-painted valve covers of the 12-cylinder engine, which was equipped with four valves per cylinder: this was also, at the time of the car’s presentation, the most powerful engine ever fitted to a production sports car.
