1992 Ferrari 512TR (LHD)
For Sale: The final evolution of the iconic Testarossa in simply wonderful condition.
Production of the Ferrari 512TR commenced in 1991 with deliveries to
customers in 1992 and it was effectively a re-engineered Testarossa,
although Ferrari was keen that it was regarded as a new model. As well as
the slightly less dramatic styling and a few tweaks to the detailing, the main
changes were chassis and engine related. The power of the 4.9 Litre, 48-
valve, flat-12 was increased to 428bhp from 380 with a similar improvement
in torque, and with the benefit of a 30kg weight reduction on the earlier
model, 0-60 times fell from 5.3 to 4.9 seconds.
This particular, left-hand drive Ferrari 512TR dates from 1992, is finished in
Rosso Corsa over Nero leather and benefits from factory-fitted air-conditioning, electric windows, central locking and a CD player. It was supplied new to Japan on 11th June 1992 and spent most of its life there before arriving in the UK in 2016. Its first UK owner was particularly fastidious and he invested nearly £10,000 bringing the car ‘up to speed’ with many new parts including a fuel pump, battery, pump seals, lots of basic maintenance and professional detailing. Since then, the Ferrari has only been lightly used and the odometer currently reads 55,000km (34,175 miles)
corroborated by some service history and 11 service stamps in the official
Ferrari Service book. Cornes and Co. Ltd serviced the car whilst in Japan
along with the Wako Automobile Service Centre and translated details of
these invoices are with the car, as are the other official handbooks, the
original tool kit and spare keys. The only recent modification is the addition
of an uprated Kreissieg exhaust system which generates a fabulous howl
from the flat-12 on full song.
Presented in simply wonderful condition, this rare low mileage TR
represents the last of the late-eighties style of Ferrari GT. Seriously quick,
pin-sharp and rather focussed, values seem to creep higher monthly so now is probably as good a time as any to start thinking about your entry into Ferrari ownership.
