This wild ‘80s Ferrari is looking for a new home on BaT.
Ferrari is a brand built off of the image of some of the most famous classic hand-built supercars in the world. The frightful engineering talent and design skill of the great Enzo Ferrari and his team of engineers have, in the past, produced some of the greatest vehicles to ever hit the black of asphalt. Of course, this means that the Ferrari name has become almost entirely synonymous with the idea of an ultra-rare luxury sports car. Today’s example is no exception to that rule as it is both extremely rare and very desirable. We’re talking about a gorgeous 1989 Ferrari Testarossa.
The exterior is finished in a beautiful Rosso Corsa which brings forth images of the intense racing cars of old. Holding the car on solid ground is a set of 16-inch alloy wheels designed in a five-spoke pattern pointing out the yellow Ferrari logo. Those swooping body lines are accented perfectly by the vibrant color combination and intricate pop-up headlights. Sitting elegantly at what seems to be the perfect ride height for this car, the Testarossa has a dominating presence and stance. The party doesn’t end at the exterior, however, as the interior is layered in a beautiful brown which contrasts the white seats and upper door panels quite well.
Sitting between the axles is an intense 4.9-liter flat-12 powerhouse which is pushing out a ridiculous, for the time, 385 horsepower. All of that power is sent through a five-speed manual transaxle which allows for better weight distribution and effortless changing between gears. As incredible as all of that performance is, it becomes quite clear upon inspection that the most interesting piece of information about this car lies on the instrument cluster. On the odometer sits an insanely low number with total mileage sitting at just 2,600 miles. This makes this car even more desirable as this is one of just 261 of these vehicles sold in the United States of America. Anybody looking to have a lot of fun in a car of their dreams would find exactly that in this car. The only question now is, who will own it?
