1984 / 1991
Low and wide, the Testarossa is the work of Pinifarina, the brand’s almost exclusive designer since 1952. Pinifarina’s talent is unquestionable, but once again his magic pencil has produced a line that is as aggressive as it is sleek and fluid. A stroke of genius capable of visually making people forget the impressive proportions of the Ferrari Testarossa (2 m wide!). The wide rear end is led by sides that are pierced and profiled along their entire length, giving the profile incredible dynamics. Its aerodynamic striations are sure to inspire many designers of body kits, although they are often less graceful… True to the concept that the function creates the organ, Pininfarina supplies fresh air to the two side radiators of the large 12-cylinder flat engine, positioned longitudinally in the rear centre position.
