1984 Ferrari Testarossa

Everything about it is functional, particularly the lateral louvers the lead air for cooling to the rear. Thus front a luggage compartment is possible, not limited by the cooling channels. Indeed a hindrance, the gentle rise of the flat hood however, what benefits the pressing pressure. The Testarossa is finally a car without a rear spoiler, extremely rare in its speed class. These days one means to extend the spoilers must have already from 120 km/h.

Incredibly quiet, the engine idle, no flaps to form a special sound. It will already still if you spur it. Leonardo Fioravanti designed a super sports car with no frills. So it runs probably, five liters distributed to twelve cylinders move 1500 kg, in the early models still unrestrained without cat. If you consider an Opel Cascada weighs 1700. What a difference, even if we deduct the Opel 70 kg the then curb weight norm and its additional pounds for the missing roof.

In the Ferrari, however, it is this tight and hot. Sure, there's an air conditioning, but it will be nevertheless hot (or yourself). And great people have problems really. Thereby anyway is room for only two people. The V-12 extends just far forward. Do not let led into temptation. For such a car, even if it is used to get as a bargain today, in principle you need the same amount again for several years maintenance and reasonable mileage. Or you are afraid to drive it but what is not good for it.

Super sports cars clearly need no description. Ferrari trusts with the prospectus solely on the effect of the picture. On black, glossy background is imaged a red racer, at the beginning a memory photo on the 250 GT Testa Rossa (twelve-cylinder) of 1958. The now considerably larger vehicle with almost the same name can be seen from all possible perspectives (except from below). Added to that comes with every noble vehicle at an extra charge available luggage set, custom-made for the existing trunk.

The engine can be seen from the side with its red valve hoods and from top with the bell housing and the power transmission to the below lying transmission with axle drive. One of the two cylinder heads let us look to its four valves per cylinder and imagine the two camshafts. The rear axle with the two dampers per side can be seen as a photograph and a screen print from a CAD design program. Similarly, the CAD surface of the body in three- dimensional representation. Computer help, to sell such a car.

What remains is a full page each for a wonderful performance and torque curve, which apparently should also refers to the measurement with computer help. It is not as smooth as we know from brochures. What can not be missed and of course easier to translate are the motor and other vehicle data. To Italian, English and German language, the French now been added. Obviously could also export there be stimulated. 11/12
