BUY­ING TIPS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Five Best Ferrari Buys -

First, some good news – the Testarossa’s bodyshell is alu­minium, with steel doors and roof, so cor­ro­sion is low on the worry list, although old paint is prone to flak­ing off.

And now for some bad news – the cam­belts must be re­placed every 15,000 miles, and it’s a daunt­ing, en­gine-out job. Other than that, the flat-12 en­gine is pretty ro­bust.

Peo­ple don’t re­gard the Testarossa as a daily driver, so they of­ten stand un­used in garages for long pe­ri­ods – which is bad for tyres, seals, gas­kets and hoses. A spec­i­men that’s racked up the miles with good main­te­nance is prob­a­bly best.
