Ferrari “Testarossa”, Pininfarina, 1991
At the 1984 Paris Auto Show Ferrari launched the 512 BB heir, paying homage to an important name for the prancing horse company after 27 years: Testarossa.
Powered by the 180° V12 of the predecessor, the Testarossa is able to reach 290 kilometers per hour and cover the 0-60 in just 5.8 seconds.
In addition to the remarkable performance, the new Ferrari amazes for its design, signed by Pininfarina: the wide rear end that makes room for the engine and the big lateral grilles that contribute to the cooling, characterized the car in a unique way.
The Testarossa is liked and its appearance in the famous TV series “Miami Vice” helped it becoming one of the car symbol of the 80s together with its rival, the Lamborghini Countach.
Visually and mechanically updated in 1992, the car changed name in 512 TR and later in 1994 the last evolution of the project came out, called F512 M, the last Ferrari powered by with a flat V12.
