Is this the most recognisable Ferrari ever?

4w ago


Few Classic Ferraris have such striking features as the long strakes starting near the front of the elongated doors of the 512TR, which leading to the side-mounted radiators.

The 512TR is powered by a naturally aspirated 4,943 cc (4.9 L; 301.6 cu in) longitudinally-mounted, rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout 180° flat-12, DOHC 4 valves per cylinder (48 valves in total), lubricated via a dry sump system, compression ratio of 9.20:1.

These combine to provide a maximum power of 287 kW (385 hp) at 6,300 rpm and maximum torque of 490 N⋅m (361 lb⋅ft) at 4,500 rpm.

The Ferrari Testarossa can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.3 seconds and from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.2 seconds and on to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 11.4 seconds,

The top speed is 290 km/h (180 mph).

Following the end of the original Testarossa production run, two variants were produced - dubbed the 512 TR and F512 M, and built from 1992 to 1996.

Almost 10,000 Testarossas, 512 TRs, and F512 Ms were produced, making it one of the mass-produced Ferrari models.
