Youngstown, Ohio, United States

If you have been looking for a Testarossa and want to know what your getting, here's your chance. This was a fairly nice car when I got it from a customer that owed me a lot of money. Having the tendency to never leave well enough alone, I wanted to make it as close to new as possible.

The VIN is ZFFTA17T0G0065561

The nice thing about this car compared to most TR's is the interior is Cream and Black instead of Tan and Brown. The Cream and Rosso Corsa look very nice together and the black dash sets it off nicely.

The Interior was removed and the seats completely disassembled and each part refinished. It still smells like a new car. It is obvious the original owners did not smoke while snorting cocaine off the vanity mirror - LOL

The Exterior is extremely clean. The hood and fenders had some road rash and have been refinished. The wheels are perfect. There is no curb rash on either the front spoiler or rear valence. The passenger side fog light lens has a crack on one corner. Other than that, there is little to nit-pick. The electric window gear boxes were disassembled, cleaned of the old dry grease and reassembled with new grease to avoid typical stripping of the gears which are no longer available.

The Engine is strong and free from any peculiarities and the brakes are perfect. The car runs hard up to whatever speed your driver's license can take and stops hard and straight. It has had only road testing miles since having a FULL major service that included all new ingition components including distributor caps, rotors, and plug wires at great expense. Obviously all belts were replace at the time as well as the belt tensioners. The water pump was fully rebuilt at the time. All hoses were done, also. All work was done at Evans Automotive in Columbus, Ohio.

The suspension performs like new in every way. There are no squeaks, rattles, or vibrations and the ride is highly controlled yet very supple for how flat the car stays in turns. The steering is tight and perfect.

The transmission needed work so Evans completely rebuilt it. This was a total rebuild that not only included the standard seals, synchros and bearings, but also new gears. ALL parts used were ORIGINAL FERRARI with no aftermarket or counterfeit parts that are common to the trade. The differential carrier and housing was perfect with none of the common failures or cracks.

The clutch is completely new, including the flywheel, pressure plate, friction disc and release bearing. That was expensive.

The total cost of all of the above work was $37,600 and I have all the receipts and invoices to prove it.

There is no sign the car has ever been in an accident.

So there you have it. If you have questions or want to see the car in my shop, send me an ebay message and i'll send you my phone number back.

Payment will need to be in the form of a wire transfer before car can be picked up. A $1,000.00 deposit via Paypal is required for the buy-it-now. I can assist in shipping, if needed. I have bought and sold a few nice cars and have good sources.

Ferrari reports fewer sales, more profit to prove strategy is working

Thu, 01 Aug 2013 19:15:00 EST

Ferrari's angle of emphasizing exclusivity by limiting deliveries is appearing to bear fruit. The company posted a 7.1-percent increase in revenues to 1.7 billion Euros ($2.2 billion at today's exchange rates) during the first half of 2013. Net profits, meanwhile, saw a jump of 20 percent to 116.2 million Euros ($153.5 million). The Prancing Horse delivered 3,767 cars, which, while an increase of 2.8 percent, represents a rate of growth that's slower than in the first quarter of 2013.
While Ferrari may be actively trying to slow its sales down to below 7,000 in 2013, it's seen increased numbers in the US, Great Britain and Germany, along with double-digit growth in the Middle East and Japan (39 percent and 28 percent, respectively).
The move to limit sales should have a greater impact on the numbers that come in later this year, which we told you about back in May. Ferrari's controversial move has already seen a drop in sales to China, which saw 50 fewer Prancing Horses than this time last year.

Le Mans-raced 1953 Ferrari 340/375 MM headed to auction

Sat, 09 Feb 2013 13:00:00 EST

Vintage Ferrari models show up on the auction circuit all the time, but few can match this particular '53 340/375 MM Berlinetta Competizione in terms of historical significance. Not only did the machine compete in the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans, but this particular model managed to finish in second place before being disqualified for taking on extra brake fluid during a stop. More importantly, a total of three Formula One world champions have driven this car in competition at events like the Spa 24 Hours, Pescara 12 Hours and the Circuit of Guadeloupe.
The coolest part for us? Umberto Maglioli managed to set a public road stage record with this machine during the Carrera Panamericana by averaging 138 miles per hour over 223 miles. The effort was good enough to land the team a sixth place finish overall, and the record still stands to this day for any road stage anywhere. The 340/375 MM Berlinetta Competizione is up for auction in restored condition at the RM Auction event in Paris this week. Check out the full press release below for more information.

Race Recap: 2013 Indian Grand Prix mostly calm with chances of Championships

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:01:00 EST

The smog around the Buddh International Circuit got so bad over the weekend that the FIA had to change the practice sessions. Then the soft tires that Pirelli brought to be the options were found to degrade so quickly that teams had to change their qualifying and race strategies. The only man it didn't seem to affect was - guess who? - Sebastian Vettel, who put his Infiniti Red Bull Racing on pole position.
Behind him came Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes-AMG Petronas, Mark Webber in the second Infiniti Red Bull and on medium tires, Felipe Massa in the first Ferrari, Kimi Räikkönen in the first Lotus, Nico Hülkenberg in the first Sauber, Fernando Alonso in the second Ferrari, and the McLaren duo of Sergio Perez and Jenson Button. The tire strategizing didn't work out for Romain Grosjean in the second Lotus, who didn't get out of Q1 after only running the medium compound tire and lined up 17th.
The Indian Grand Prix has been held twice and Vettel has led every single lap of both races. If nothing else, we knew there would be at least one new thing about this Indian Grand Prix: there'd be a lap not led by Vettel since he qualified on softs and would have to pit before Webber and Alonso who were both on mediums.
