Year:1987 Mileage:25100 Color: is extremely clean
Location:

Youngstown, Ohio, United States

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.

Luca doesn't believe in electric cars, but Ferrari will build more hybrids

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 14:41:00 EST

Confirming what we'd long suspected, the hybrid powertrain in the Ferrari LaFerrari was not a one-time thing. "I don't believe in the electric cars, but I strongly believe in hybrids," Ferrari boss Luca Cordero di Montezemolo tells Bloomberg. It's unclear when we'll see another hybrid Ferrari, though, as the automaker's current lineup is quite fresh - the oldest model is the California, which was updated for the 2013 model year - but make no mistake, there are more electrified cars coming from Maranello. "The answer is yes," Montezemolo told Bloomberg when asked about hybrids, although he was quick to add "without exceeding." It's that last part that is key for enthusiasts of the gas engine.
Ferrari's move towards hybrid powertrains reflects a pair of trends in both the political and motorsports spheres. Politically, automakers, even exotics, are being pushed to produce cars with cleaner emissions, or in many cases, no emissions at all. Look no further than the Range Rover Hybrid, which was just announced. Formula One's push towards hybridization and smaller engines is also informing decisions at Ferrari, with the LaFerrari already using hybrid tech already inspired by the sport.
Still, it's reassuring to know that while Ferrari is pushing forward with future technologies, that the gas engine won't go the way of the manual transmission in Maranello - at least in the near term.

Ferrari exec to lead Jaguar North America

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 18:31:00 EST

Jaguar has announced that Jeff Curry will be serving as the brand's new North American vice president, effective August 13. The move is a coup for Jag, which lured Curry away from his previous posting as VP of marketing for Ferrari North America, and is further evidence of just how strong Jaguar's comeback has gotten.
Curry has spent over 20 years in the auto industry, and has worked with Audi, SiriusXM and Land Rover, where he made his start in the industry. His primary responsibilities with Jaguar will cover marketing communications, customer relationship management, and product planning.
Jaguar Land Rover's North American president, Andy Goss, heaped praise on the brand's newest addition saying, "Jeff brings with him extensive automotive and luxury marketing experience, critical expertise in leading-edge technologies and a personal passion for automobiles."

Shell Ultimate Automotive Enthusiast contest returns to send winner to Barrett-Jackson and Maranello

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 08:30:00 EST

The first Shell V-Power Ultimate Enthusiast contest was held last year and sent finalists to a VIP experience at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, while the grand prize winner went to Maranello, Italy for some intimate time with Ferrari. The Dutch member of the seven sisters is doing it again this year: from now until September 17 anyone who wants a chance to live the same adventure can submit stories and photos that prove why they're the ultimate enthusiast.
Among the judging panel will be Roger Penske, Craig Jackson of Barrett-Jackson, drag racer Don Prudhomme, Tony Marini of Hot August Nights, Car and Driver chief Eddie Alterman, Road & Track honcho Larry Webster and last year's contest winner Harold Craige (pictured above with his wife at Fiorano).
Anyone in the US is welcome to submit. Three finalists will be flown to Scottsdale for a three-day VIP tour of Barrett-Jackson's January action, and they'll get a year's worth of V-Power premium gasoline. The grand prize winner will be announced in Arizona, and that person will get a week in Italy to explore the Ferrari factory complex and drive one of the company cars on the Fiorano track. Having been to the Maranello factory ourselves, we can attest that it's a bucket-list item for anyone who truly digs cars.
