Testarossa is a mythical name that evokes memories of speed and power, even in the less fanatical amongst us. Few cars in the world have constantly been at the forefront of technical innovation and style. The Testarossa was presented to the public at the 1984 Paris Salon as the replacement for the top-of-the-range Berlinetta Boxer series. The distinctive wedge styling of its predecessor is replaced by a much softer, rounded shape on basically the same mechanical layout. The most notable and radical of its styling elements are the deep, streaked inlets in the door panels that feed air to the rear side mounted water radiators, a rear body section wider than the front, and a screen post mounted rear view mirror supported by twin aerofoil section arms. The engine is a 5 litre flat 12 mid-mounted unit, with four valves per cylinder, that produces 390 bhp. It has the camshaft covers painted red in memory of the late fifties' and early sixties' sports racing Testa Rossa models, from which the name was derived. The Ferrari Testarossa represents a milestone in sports car design, and not only in Maranello. In an exclusive interview, Sergio Pininfarina, who enthusiastically supported this project reveals the "behind the scenes" drama of the R&D and engineering deliberations. Set in beautiful Tuscany, this video is a tribute to the elegance and performance of a car that is truly representative of the "Prancing Horse." Running Time: 30 Min., Coior
