87 Testarossa - Nero Black Metallic

Here is my Testarossa. It is Nero Black Metalllic with Black and Maroon interior, very odd but nice once you get used to it.

Looks real nice in Black!

Do you think God stays in Heaven because she is afraid of what she sees down here?

Beautiful looking car. I love it, and the Testarossa is actually my favorite Ferrari (hence the story in the models section). Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you here.

Here are some pics of what I'm told is a "special ordered" interior (previous owner). Not sure if I believe it or not. The only evidence of any dye work is on the inner bolster of the driver's seat. When I removed the seats and took them apart to tighten up the side bolsters....I could not see any evidence of a dye job. So it did at least appear original. You either love it or hate it. It must be kept spotless to look nice, at the first sign of dirt and dust it looks awful. Quite a pain really.

I for one am STILL loving that color! The Maroon just sets the Black off. Very nice combination I think.

i agree with 360
it's really cool looking
i love the 2 tone colors combo interior, very special

in Holland there's this black testarossa with a dark red interior driving around, i like that one also, also gives a special look to the car

How about I come up there and you drive me around a bit or let me drive around a bit and let it REALLY grow on me!! :wink:
(even though I love that combination already, an in-person sighting would just concrete my opinion!)

Man do I love that car! Is that a Testarossa with 512TR wheels on it? And on the subject of 512TRs...in my opinion it is the best of the series. There just isn't anything you can do to improve the looks.....it's perfect just the way it came from the factory. I know the F512M had a bit of a performance edge...but I don't think it looked as good, it was a mix of old and new and just didn't "flow" if you know what I mean. My dream car is a 512TR some day....maybe.....
