The Testarossa was a significant advance for Ferrari. Designed for series production, this flat-12 supercar continued Ferrari’s 12-cylinder tradition in a modern, mid-engined configuration that could be traced directly to the 512 and 312 sports prototypes and Ferrari’s years of Formula One experience.

This 1988 Ferrari Testarossa is a U.S.-delivery example equipped with stereo sound system and air conditioning. Its odometer shows just 37,227 miles, a reading that appears to be appropriate to its condition. It is complete with its books and tools and comes with an extensive file of ownership documents and service history.

Perhaps best of all, it is distinctively finished in Argento (silver) over Bordeaux leather upholstery, an attractive complement to the distinctive lines of the Testarossa’s Pininfarina body design and a refreshing change from the common red over tan. Freshly serviced, this attractive, handsome Argento Testarossa is ready to be used and enjoyed.
