In the early 1990s, few sports cars were as glamorous and eye-catching as the Ferrari Testarossa. Based on the exotic body design of the Berlinetta Boxer, which it replaced, the Testarossa was a faster, bigger, more spacious, more luxurious and a better handling car than its predecessor. This elegant 2-door coupe had a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout that kept the center of gravity in the middle of the car for increased stability and cornering ability. Power was transmitted through the wheels from a rear-mounted five-speed manual transmission. Its rear-mounted radiator was cooled by the air coming from the recognizable side strakes that stretched from the door to the rear fender on each side. A 4.9-L Colombo 12-cylinder engine that was capable of producing 390 hp at 6,300 rpm powered the Testarossa. All those features enabled the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds and race at a speed up to 180 mph.
