Vehicle Overview


To many Ferrari afficionado’s of a certain age, mention Testa Rossa and they think of the iconic 50’s Ferrari V12 sports-racer which had considerable global, circuit racing success…………. whilst to those  a little younger, they may think of Sunny Crockett’s white example, used as his everyday car in the late-eighties US TV show, Miami Vice.

Debuted by Ferrari SPA at the 1984 Paris Auto salon , the flat-12 engined, two door successor to the 512 Berlinetta Boxer, was designed by Leonardo Fioravanti (from styling house Pininfarina) and combined a rear-mounted five speed gearbox, mated to  a forty-eight valve, dry sump lubricated engine (which delivered approximately 390 bhp) and double wishbone suspension.

Recently “matched” against the contemporary Lamborghini Countach, in an article published in the 2012 August edition of Octane magazine, John Simister concluded his extensive review of both by saying, “ I realise I have become very taken with the Testa  Rossa, but I am content for the Lamborghini to remain a once-only experience”.

The car we offer, chassis #ZFFAA17C000085500 was built in Maranello, Italy in August 1990 (the seventh year of Testa Rossa production), and was delivered new via Ferrari main agent, HR Owen Limited Albermarle Street London W1, on September 17th 1990. Sadly due to a change in circumstances, H761XYW was never  delivered to its intended customer,  and  instead was sold within seven days,  to its sole keeper, a long-time Ferrari Owners Club GB member,  who has meticulously maintained it ever since. Specified with a rosso corsa exterior and a magnolia interior, this superb Testa  Rossa has travelled only 18,356 and is supplied with a comprehensive history file, detailing its marque specialist maintenance from new.
