This GT (Grand Tourer) sports car has a central engine block at the rear and 12 cylinders, giving it a capacity of 390 HP and a top speed of 300 km/h.
The Testarossa was presented for the first time in Paris during the ‘Mondial de l’Automobile’ in 1984. It was the penultimate car to be mass produced at the Maranello plant, run by Commandatore Enzo Ferrari. The car was an absolute must in the 1980s and acquired a worthy place in the Ferrari legend. With aluminium bodywork (except for the doors and the roof), a leather interior, a mechanical 5-speed gearbox, a cylinder capacity of 4,942cm³ and 48 valves, the Testarossa combines luxury and sport.
The Ferrari Testarossa will also be used to promote the ‘Italian Car Passion’ exhibition.
You can admire this latest acquisition at the entrance to the museum and who knows, you may come across it on the road, or at one of the many events in which it is to take part.
