A meticulously maintained 1986 Ferrari Testarossa, showcasing the iconic monospecchio "flying mirror," is now up for auction with just 6k kilometers on the odometer.

In an offering that's sure to excite Ferrari enthusiasts and collectors alike, a pristine 1986 Ferrari Testarossa has been listed for auction. This European-market gem, imported to the U.S. in March 1986, is a remarkable find with only 6,000 kilometers (~3,600 miles) recorded. Known for its distinctive design and high performance, this Testarossa shines in Rosso Corsa and features the highly sought-after monospecchio, or "flying mirror," mounted on the left A-pillar—a hallmark of Ferrari's mid-80s design ethos.

Underneath its sculpted exterior, designed by Pininfarina, lies a powerhouse 4.9-liter flat-12 engine, paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. The vehicle's impressive performance is complemented by a limited-slip differential, 16″ Cromodora five-spoke alloy wheels, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. Recent maintenance in December 2023 ensures that this Testarossa not only looks the part but is also ready to deliver exhilarating driving experiences, true to its racing heritage.

The interior is just as captivating, upholstered in Crema Connolly leather with a classic gated shifter and an array of amenities including air conditioning, an Alpine cassette stereo, and power windows. The attention to detail extends to recent service work, which included an engine-out timing belt service, water pump and clutch assembly rebuild, and replacement of various crucial components, underscoring the care and dedication invested in its upkeep.

Accompanied by a six-piece luggage collection from Schedoni, a spare set of 415mm Cromodora five-spoke alloy wheels, manufacturer’s literature, and a comprehensive service record, this Testarossa is a collectible that combines rarity, performance, and iconic styling. Offering a unique opportunity to own a piece of Ferrari's illustrious history, this 1986 Testarossa is not just a car but a testament to the enduring allure and craftsmanship of one of Italy's most revered marques.
