Starting from its first car in 1947 to this very day, Ferrari has created a near-endless array of genuinely legendary automobiles, more than a few per decade for sure. Still, there is rarely any Ferrari more iconic than the Ferrari Testarossa.

For some, the 80's were the best decade. Everything from fashion to music and films was eccentric. Automobile manufacturers understood this very well, and cars like the Lamborghini Countach or the DeLorean DMC-12 had very fitting designs. And so did the Ferrari Testarossa. Is there an even more iconic Ferrari? Right, you have your F40s, 288 GTOs, Daytonas, 250 GTOs. But take a closer look at this one. It looks like nothing else. A perfect representation of the 80s. 

The Testarossa's name comes from its great ancestor the 250 Testa Rossa race car. It came out in 1984. Music hits like Madonna's Like a Virgin were all over the place, The Terminator movie was in every cinema, and men were wearing the moustache like porn stars and Tom Selleck. So why did this car end up being so iconic?

First things first, it starred in a mythic TV show called Miami Vice. You may have never heard of it, but everybody was watching this. Enzo Ferrari himself was a huge fan and was the one who personally handed the keys of the white Testarossa to the show's main character, Don Johnson.

The Testarossa is a true Ferrari. Which means, awesome design, big engine, and high emotions. Being a Ferrari, it had to be powerful. And being the flagship, back in the days, it had to be a 12 cylinder. Centrally mounted, the heart of this redhead develops 380hp, and will take the car up to 290km/h (180mph). Listening to this screaming flat-12 is like going to the opera. This car feels timeless. You are driving an icon, a myth, a piece of Ferrari's golden era.

This specific Testarossa was delivered June 2nd 1989 to its first owner in Switserland where it remained till 2016. In 2016 the car came to Belgium where it was kept in a collection.

With its documented 8,861 KM on the odometer, this car approaches perfection. The following documentation of the kilometers is available via the Ferrari maintenance booklet, as well as the Swiss anti-pollution maintenance history:

Since the car has not been driven the last years, we have performed a complete check and performed a major service including new clutch, new belts (including drive belt) etc. We also have designed custom 18” wheels in the spirit of the original wheels that give the car an even more timeless look.

It speaks for itself, the original wheels come with the car and these wheels even have the original factory tyres from 1989!

The car comes with its leather pouch containing all the booklets, including the original service book. Besides this both leather toolbags, including all tools, are present.

This car is a VAT car, so when exporting the car outside Europe, 21% of VAT can be reclaimed.

We expect this car to be a perfect investment. Because in a near future, finding a 12 cylinder Ferrari with a manual gearbox, and perfect specs, will be complicated. Hate it or love it, the Testarossa is forever.
