The 512 TR is an evolution of the Testarossa and is powered by a 4942cc horizontally opposed, DOHC twelve-cylinder engine fitted with a Bosch K-jetronic fuel injection system. Similar to its predecessor, the 512TR featured a refined frontal design similar to the 348, but with mostly different internals. The gearbox was redesigned to shift more smoothly with a single-plate clutch. The enlarged discs were cross-drilled and the steering was quickened.
Testarossa evolved into the 512 TR with subtle exterior changes to improve aerodynamics. The alterations included a one-piece nose with rounded front grille, flush mounted lights and ducts, and a new undertray. At the rear a small kamm tail smoothed airflow. High speed stability and cooling improved, while lift was reduced.
The 512 TR had a floor pan strengthened at high stress points by chromium-molybdenum steel. New welding techniques strengthened joints. The drivetrain and rear suspension of the 512 TR were directly mounted on the full rear frame. These changes contributed to substantially increased torsional rigidity and decreased weight.
The engine of the 512 TR evolved significantly to produce 421bhp at 6750rpm, and 360lbs-ft of torque at 5500rpm. The torque curve of the 512 TR is somewhat more progressive than that of its predecessor. These improvements were achieved through numerous small changes including a strengthened block, a 10:1 compression ratio, revised valves, and a new intake system that ingeniously changed the intake of air. A Bosch Motronic 2.7 system controlled the engine.
To fully exploit its power, the 512 TR was also given new cast alloy wheels. These wheels are thinner spoked versions of the Testarossas, for improved brake cooling. The five hub bolts remain. These wheels are18X8 wth 235/ZR40 tires at front, and 18X10.5 wth 295/ZR35 tires at the rear.
The interior of the 512 TR differed most obviously from the Testarossa by changes to the center console, providing a more spacious feeling in the cabin. The basic shape and arrangement of the dashboard was unchanged, though its edges were rounded. Some gauges and instruments were relocated within the binnacle. The 512 TR was also given an updated Momo Steering wheel with a slightly thicker leather covered rim. The seats were redesigned and lowered.
