The 512 TR is an evolution of the Testarossa that graced thousands of car enthusiasts’ walls in poster form in the 1980s. The iconic shape, slightly refined during the transition to 512 TR form, maintains the famous side strakes and wide stance that made the original a universal icon of Italian power—a true Testarossa. As an update to the pioneering Berlinetta Boxers of the 1970s, it is powered by a modified version of the BB’s mid-mounted flat-12 engine, displacing 5 liters and pumped up to 421 horsepower. Interestingly, the engine is closely related to Ferrari’s Colombo-designed V12s, flattened for use in the mid-engine cars. Cooling for the big, high-strung engine necessitated large radiators flanking the engine in the rear, fed cool air by the huge side scoops. It seems strange, but the Testarossa and its related successors are some of the most-produced Ferraris ever, considering that the chassis served the company over the span of three decades. While the 512 TR has staggering street performance, it is one of few Ferraris for which the track is not the best place to enjoy its charms—the TR instead loves a windy stretch of road from which to explore the wide torque band and sonorous tones of its substantial engine.
