By the time the Ferrari Testarossa's production run came to an end
in 1991, Modena's flat-12-powered wedge had left an indelible mark
on popular culture; with 7,177 built between 1984 and that final
year, it was also, by Ferrari standards, a tremendous sales
success. But if this bold Pininfarinia-styled supercar is arresting
in any color, including the classic (and relatively common) Rosso,
it is particularly striking-and rare-when finished in white.
This 1991 Ferrari Testarossa in Bianco over a Beige and brown
interior is one such car. Delivered new to Lake Forest Sports cars
of Lake Forest, Illinois, this car has had just three private
owners from new and was kept by its first owner until 1996. It was
then purchased by its second owner who retained the car until 2016,
after which it entered a private collection in South Florida.
Through this chain of ownership, the car has accrued just 6,890
miles from new.
Commensurate with this remarkably low mileage, this Testarossa is
in excellent condition inside and out, including the exterior paint
and panel fit. It is believed to be all original paint and meters
consistently around the whole car from 4.2-5.6. Sensitive areas
such as the low front splitter and undercarriage display only
minor, expected wear. The interior likewise shows minor signs of
use, with supple leather throughout, clean door cards, and a
tight-fitting, shrink-and crack-free dash.
The engine bay, too, is highly presentable, with surfaces-including
the eye-catching red crackle finish on the cylinder heads of the
car's acclaimed 4.9-liter flat-12 engine-in excellent condition.
Currently fitted with a cleanly installed Tubi Style exhaust, the
car is accompanied by its original exhaust system.
A well-preserved final production year example of a Ferrari icon,
this uncommon Bianco 1991 Testarossa is a low-mileage time capsule
example-fitting for a vehicle so instantly evocative of an era. The
car is offered with original owner's manuals, warranty card, and
literature in a leather folio, historical photos, partial service
records (from October 1996 onward), spare wheel and tire, tools,
and original exhaust system. To view this car and others currently
