1988 Ferrari Testarossa

The classic Ferrari Testarossa was first produced in 1984 and was designed to replace the outgoing Ferrari BB 512i Berlinetta Boxer. The Ferrari Testarossa was bigger and more spacious, but shared the same stunning and exotic design of its predecessor. What set it apart was the presence of side strakes running from the door to the rear fender on each side, which many believe gave the Testarossa a sportier and more sophisticated look. The 1988 Ferrari Testarossa differs from the earlier versions in that it has redesigned suspension. Also, the single bolt knockoff wheels introduced with the 1985 model were discarded in favor of the original standard five-bolt pattern in 1988. A 4.9L Colombo V12 engine, which was capable of developing 390 hp at 6,300 rpm, powered the 1988 Ferrari Testarossa, could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 180 mph. These are just a few of the many characteristics that should be shared with buyers who may be interested in your classic but that have little idea of the history of the Ferrari Testarossa brand.
