Looks like a Koenig 512bbi to me. This is definately NOT a Testarossa. It is either a 512bb or a 512bbi, but (badly?) spoil(er)ed by some company. I think it should be Koenig from Germany but not 100% sure.

And the year of the car should be between 78-84, depending on what car this actually is. I think your best bet will be 1982 or so.

oooohh that is one of the creations of crazy Willy Koenig
it just happens that i'm looking at 2 pics of 2 tuned Koenig 308's in a book.
I'll see what i can dig up about this one, but it's certainly a 512

Where did you get this picture from? I think Koenig would have known the difference between a Testarossa and a 512bb! The Berlinetta Boxer (BB) was the predecessor (sp?) of the Testarossa. Apparently the Koenig car was converted later since the air scoops in the door are obviously inspired by the TR!

Definately a conversion after 1984 BTW, since the air intake at the rear resembles that of a 288 GTO!

At least, I think so...
