The 512M (Modificata) was the final send-off for the final version
of the Ferrari Testarossa. The Testarossa was born in 1984 and ran
through 1996. This car is one of the most recognizable cars from
the 80's and 90's partly due to the famous Miami Vice television
show. They produced 501 examples of the 512M.
The Testarossa went through 3 basic variants: The Testarossa, the
512TR and the 512M. The last version that we have here is the "M"
version. The "M" was the most refined version of the Testarossa's.
It had enough changes to make it a clean refined gentleman's
Powered by a Flat Plane Crank 12 cylinder producing 370lb-ft of
torque and 434hp at 6,750rpm. The engine has a 4 valves per
cylinder and an upgraded lightened rotating assembly with Titanium
Connecting Rods and a new crankshaft. All of this moves the 512M
from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 196mph.
The exterior was cleaned up, gone were the "pop-up" headlights,
clear fixed headlights were now installed. Naca intake ducts on the
hood were installed, the bumpers were cleaned up, with a smaller
grill, taillights were now exposed rounded lamps instead of behind
the horizontal bars. The wheels were now modular wheels from the
prior one-piece wheels. Air Conditioning was now a standard option
on the 512M, the interior saw little upgrades such as drilled
peddles and a chrome shift knob.
This example is a 3-owner example. The second owner (Ferrari
Collector Mike Amalfitano) acquired the car in 2001 (per the CarFax
and record) He owned the car through 2011 where it was sold through
Bonhams Auction also documenting the mileage. Autosport Design
handled the import for Mike in 2001 and Federalization of the car.
The third owner acquired the car through Bonhams auction and
exported the car to Denmark where it resided until our acquisition
in 2022. The car is complete with its books and tools and is
offered with a fresh full major engine out service.
This is an "Investment Grade" example and is a rare opportunity to
own a piece of modern Ferrari history. This is a great addition to
any new or seasoned Ferrari Collection.
