  1. When a Testarossa roars down the street, all heads turn! The sheer beauty of Pininfarina's body styling, the unbridled power of the 390-bhp flat-12 and the luxurious ivory-leather interior makes this one of Maranello's masterpieces.

    I love them too. The engine sounds terrific. I remember my first ride in one. The seat belts didnt work, i was holding onto the door handle for dear life. Luckily the driver knew what he was doing. It wasnt the fastest car i've been in, ive even driven fast cars, but its a FERRARI. It does everything good. Here are some pics of the car. The white TR all the way to the left was the one i was in, i was actually in all 3 and i drove the NSX.
    The 2nd is of the engine of the testarossa.
    the third is of a 512m. I was not in this car, even though i would have loved to be taken out. This pic was taken at the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance. Its a world renowned car show. This car was in the same circle with another one of my friends with a 550 Barchetta (you can see it in the background, above the 512. that car is amazing).
    The 4th is another of the 512m. If you look at the concours plate you can see that they said its a 1975 ferrari when its a 95.

    Heres one of that 550 Barchetta, just because its that amazing. Who's that sexy mother#$%#er in the 2nd picture? ;) Sorry about the bad quality of the last 2 pics.

    You are a lucky person and I'm jealous-sigh-I've never even been inside a Ferrari let alone be driven in own.

    Life is so sad.

    Ferrari decided that a 14 year production was long enough, despite how lovely the car was. It was getting harder and harder to revamp the Testarossa when newer, more powerful cars were being offered. So they came out with the 550 Maranello in 1996 to challenge the other companies.

    Ferrari decided that a 14 year production was long enough, despite how lovely the car was. It was getting really expensive to improve as well as being increasingly difficult to revamp the aging Testarossa when newer, more powerful cars were being offered. Therefore, Ferrari came out with the 550 Maranello in 1996 to challenge the other companies.
