Used Ferrari Testarossa

Background

The Ferrari Testarossa evokes the testosterone-fuelled years of the 1980s with its sweeping, angular body and impressively gutsy performance, even if the real meaning of its name translates from the Italian as 'redhead'.

A feisty strawberry blonde beauty, the Testarossa first landed in 1984 and would survive until 1991, even if the car survived in two more iterations with the curter TR nametags until 1996.

Around 10,000 Testarossas were produced throughout its run, so it is not a hugely uncommon car by the standards of Ferrari, even if it has all of the outlandish and luxurious features that you would expect from this manufacturer.

Ferrari approached the design of the Ferrari Testarossa with an eye to make it a little more practical than its predecessors, which is why it seems so large up close. Longer, wider and taller than the Berlinetta Boxer, it accommodated more luggage and physically bigger passengers.

A 4.9 litre engine was fitted in the standard model, with 390bhp and a top speed of around 180mph generated by this powerplant. It could hit 62mph in 5.3 seconds and although it is dramatically outpaced by modern equivalents, it remains a beautifully designed, well endowed Ferrari example.

The Ferrari Testarossa lived on in the 512 TR, introduced in 1991. This upped the power of the V12 engine to 428bhp, allowing it to hit 60mph in 4.9 seconds and increasing the top speed to 195mph.

In 1994 the F512 M took things even further, this time using a flat 12 engine and peaking at 440bhp, for a 0-62mph time of just 4.7 seconds. Only 500 of these were ever made, but the rarest Testarossa is certainly the convertible Spider, of which a single unit was built for the then head of Fiat.

Some aftermarket conversions allowed Testarossa owners to copy the one-off Spider, but Ferrari would not make official editions because of the technical challenges involved.

Bang for your buck

Some see the 1980s as a particularly superficial decade, so if you were going to make your mark and get the right look, the Ferrari Testarossa was a perfect companion.

Its design went on to influence plenty of other manufacturers with their own cars during the era, with the wide, flared wheel arches being a particular hit.

By modern standards the interior of the Testarossa looks really rather limited, although plenty of leather on the seats and carpet on the flooring and doors means that you do get that important touch of luxury.

There's room for luggage under the bonnet, as well as a shelf directly behind the seats that lets you actually take a decent amount of kit around with you.

What you'll pay

The Ferrari Testarossa was originally sold in the UK for around £62,000 and today you can pick up an early model for about £50,000 or so. The more collectible, low mileage options will be considerably more, as will the more recent TR series which were produced in smaller numbers and upped the power output significantly.

What to check

This is a classic Ferrari, so reliability can be a bit here and there. A full service history with all the bells and whistles is essential and you should be on the lookout for any modified cars, because over the years the wide availability of the Testarossa has led it on some rather wild pathways.

Parts

The Ferrari Testarossa's running costs vary depending on what needs doing, but in general you can expect the parts to be comparable in price with those for other high end supercars with classic heritage.

How it drives

While the Ferrari Testarossa was never really much of a track car and didn't feature on the professional race circuit, you can definitely tell that it is happier when being driven at speed.

Tootling around town at 30mph will make the steering heavier than some will be able to stand, particularly if you are going to be using it on a regular basis. But open up the tap and suddenly it all seems to make much more sense.

From a practical point of view it is actually quite comfortable and with highly adjustable seats and steering you can fit most people onboard without feeling too cramped.
