  • A late-production Testarossa
  • Finished in quintessential Rosso Corsa over Nero
  • Showing 48,000 km

A late-production Testarossa, this example was built for the 1992 model year and finished in what is perhaps the car’s most iconic colour scheme, Rosso Corsa over Nero. It was delivered to its first owner, a Mr Giancarlo Fuser in Carbonera, a commune in the province of Treviso, Italy, in September of 1991. While little is known of the car’s history, it is believed to have remained in Italy since new. It presents in highly original condition throughout with all the correct trim details and finishes present, with the odometer showing 48,058 km. It should be noted that the car has spent the last several years in static storage and that it would require servicing before it is returned to the open road.

A legend in its own time and perhaps Ferrari’s most instantly recognizable automobile of the era, the Testarossa is a car that needs no introduction and one that will continue to be desirable for years to come due to it stunning performance and equally fetching good looks. This example presents well and with some care, could easily make a lovely driver.

• Parmi les dernières Testarossa produites
• Teintes emblématiques "Rosso Corsa" sur "Nero"
• 48 000 km depuis l'origine

Faisant partie des derniers exemplaires produits, cette Testarossa correspond à l'année-modèle 1992 et se présente dans ce qui est sans doute le thème de couleurs le plus emblématique, "Rosso Corsa" sur "Nero". Cette voiture a été livrée en septembre 1991 à son premier propriétaire, M. Giancarlo Fuser, à Carbonera, une commune de la province de Trévise, en Italie. Bien que l'on sache peu de chose de l'histoire de cette voiture, elle est sans doute restée en Italie depuis l'origine. Elle se présente dans un état d'origine très fidèle, avec tous ses détails d'équipement et de finition, le compteur affichant 48 058 km. Il convient de noter que cette voiture a été entreposée toutes ces dernières années sans bouger, et qu'elle devra faire l’objet d'une révision avant de pouvoir prendre la route.

Véritable légende de son temps et sans doute la Ferrari la plus immédiatement identifiable de l'époque, la Testarossa est une voiture qu'il n'est pas nécessaire de présenter et qui va continuer pendant longtemps encore à garder tout son attrait, grâce à ses performances incroyables et à son allure impressionnante. Cet exemplaire affiche une bonne présentation et, avec quelques soins, pourra facilement constituer une excellente voiture pour la route.
