BaT Auction: 1991 Ferrari Testarossa

This 1991 Ferrari Testarossa is a black-on-black example that is powered by a 4.9-liter flat-12 paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Features include 16″ alloy wheels, pop-up headlights, Veglia instrumentation, Bosch KE-Jetronic fuel injection, and a gated shifter. The car was first registered in Canada, and the current owner acquired it in 2016. Service in late 2020 consisted of flushing the brakes as well as replacing the timing belts, fuel-injector O-rings, gaskets, clutch throw-out bearing, hydraulic clutch hose, battery, and rear brake pads. This Testarossa is offered in California by the seller on behalf of its owner with an accident-free Carfax report, recent service records, a tool kit, manufacturer’s literature, and a clean Montana title under the owner’s LLC.
