More details

There were three iterations of the model, the original Testarossa, the 512TR and 512M, nearly 10,000 produced in all which at the time was the most widely produced car Ferrari had ever made. In 1992 the Testarossa was re-introduced as the 512TR (for Testa Rossa) making its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show as a completely new car with improved weight distribution (41% front, 59% rear) and drivability, the production run ending two years later with the introduction of the 512M.

These models represented the last of the V12 boxer engine series produced by Ferrari as the cars were replaced by the brilliant 550 Maranello which carried on as a front engined V12 design.

For our purposes, we will concentrate on the 512TR model version. The TR was produced from 1991 to 1994 with a total of 2,261 examples rolling out of the Maranello factory. The TR was a slight departure from the Testarossa receiving an extensively reworked engine featuring Nikasil liners, Bosch engine management system, larger intake valves and revised exhaust system. All of these improvements resulted in a broader power curve, better acceleration and of course, more high-end power.

Likewise, in order to address driver complaints about shifting, a single plate clutch, sliding ball bearings and more comfortable angle was added. Improved braking was also addressed with the addition of cross drilled front rotors. More responsive steering, lower profile tires and new shock settings along with placement of the engine and gearbox improved the center of gravity for better balance for an overall better handling car.

Inside, the 512TR was updated with the center console separated from the dashboard with climate controls moved for easier access. Pininfarina reworked the body for better integration of the spoilers and engine cover moving it more in line with the appearance of the 348.

The normal production of the 512TR started slowly in April 1991. For a long period the factory built the Testarossa and the 512TR simultaneously and they were stocking the 512 TRs. The first cars (mainly U.S. versions) went to clients in December 1991.

Total production was 2,261 cars, with serial numbers in the range of 89100 to 99743.
This 1992 Ferrari 512 TR (#1660) is a U.S. version (1 of 408) resplendent in Nero (black) with matching Nero (black) leather interior. The car is showing 5,268 miles and has recently received a full service and new Pirelli tires.
