1986 Ferrari Testarossa Black with Tan Leather Interior VIN ZFFSA17A360061719 Upon its introduction in late 1984, the Testarossa stunned the world with its avant garde styling. Long low and wide, the Testarossa appeared even more so thanks to the extensive use of horizontal slatting, a feature that would be replicated both on other Ferraris and on many other lesser cars. Yet beneath these striking features was a surprisingly organic and handsome form that remains as arresting today as it was twenty years ago. Motivated by a new four valve version of Ferrari`s horizontally opposed twelve cylinder engine that made 390hp, the car was quick and made fantastic noises, but was also very plush with leather almost everywhere, including on the rear shelf, headliner, and visors. The trunk is reasonably sized and the car very comfortable and easy to drive, making it an ideal way to cover long distances at high speeds in comfort. Many Testarossa owners use them regularly and there are many owners with cars having covered over 125,000 miles, and even an example with over 200,000 miles! This particular car has been driven by its owners and has all service records since 1990, which show that the car has been well-maintained, regardless of cost, and with attention to the smallest details. Thus, the car does not suffer from many of the deterioration from lack of use that extremely low mileage cars have, and is ready to be enjoyed. It has seen a major service in 2000, and just had a new clutch installed in August of 2007. Cosmetically, this car is in excellent condition. It has the appearance of a car with a quarter of the mileage, both inside and out. The paintwork shows very light wear, with just the usual road wear on the nose and a handful of other very small blemishes. The amount of blemishes on the front end of the car is consistent with that of a car with approximately 15,000 miles. The underside of the spoiler has very minimal scraping only, and is free from cracks or chips. There is no evidence of accidents. The wheels have been refinished in black, which lends the car a very menacing look. The windows are lightly tinted and all glass and lights are in nice condition, including the four Cibiheadlamps. The interior is also in extremely nice condition. The seats show light wear only, even on the driver`s seat bolster, an area that is typically worn in Ferraris. There is one small puncture on the driver`s seat bottom. The remainder of the leather, which covers almost every surface, including the sills, door panels, dashboard, rear parcel shelf, and headliner, is excellent. The dashboard is done in a rich dark brown leather that sets off the tan nicely and is almost completely free from the shrinkage and discoloration that frequently affects these cars. The carpets are excellent as well, and there is a pair of aftermarket overmats with embroidered crests fitted. The engine compartment and trunk are also extraordinarily clean, for a car of any mileage. The trunk reveals the tool roll with tools, car cover, and the shop manual. The engine compartment is very nearly spotless and is almost unbelievably clean considering the age and mileage of the car. This is a great opportunity to acquire one of these very neat and important cars. Their astonishing styling still carries tremendous impact, and they are modern, practical, and easy enough to drive to use on a regular basis. This car has been enthusiastically owned and well-maintained, both mechanically and cosmetically, and is in excellent condition for any car, irrespective of mileage. It has been in California for most of its life and represents a great way to enjoy the Ferrari experience as often as possible for the new owner. Moreover, with values of these cars stabilized and are beginning to go up, this can be a rationally appealing proposition as well.
