1992 FERRARI 512 TR

The Ferrari 512 TR was first unleashed to the world in 1992.
The car, by name and design, paying homage to the Championship winning Testa
Rossa’s of the 1950’s.
Central to the success of these highly sought-after cars is the
outstanding flat-12 powerplant, and the stunning Pininfarina design. The new flat-12,
which succeeded from the 1984 Testarossa, benefited from superior engineering. This
resulted in more speed and more power. The 512 TR had a top speed of 195mph and
achieved 0-60 in just 4.8 seconds, blisteringly quick even by modern supercar
standards. As well as this the flat-12 engine produces a harmonic note that simply
resonates. When it was released the 512 TR also had improved weight
displacement, this created a more balanced supercar and encouraged better
handling and responsiveness.
This Pininfarina design is one of the most iconic and era
encapsulating in their history, and this model, finished in classic Rosso Corsa
with Nero Leather, speaks volumes of class.
This stunning example was first supplied to the Japanese
market in 1992, by Cornes & Co of Nagoya. It was imported to the UK and
registered in 2016. It is sold with a comprehensive service history from its
time in Japan and the UK.
This 512 TR is to be offered at a time when serious
collectors are looking back to this period of Ferrari with ever growing
appreciation for the engineering and beauty of the cars.
‘Every iteration of the Ferrari Testarossa just keeps gaining in historical
significance—while looking better and better—as the decades pile on.’ Robbreport.com
