Introduced in 1984 to replace the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer, the Ferrari Testarossa was the longest running series in the companys history. This mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car inherited the stunning body shell design of the Berlinetta, but with a number of changes that made it look quite different in the end. It was half a foot wider and had side strakes that stretched from the doors to the rear fenders to provide cool air to the rear-mounted side radiators. The Ferrari Testarossa was powered by a mid-mounted 4.9-L Colombo DOHC V12 engine lubricated via a dry sump that provided up to 390 hp at 6,300 rpm. Early American versions of the car had a slightly lower power rating though. The Testarossa had a top speed of 180 mph and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. Over the years, the Testarossa has become a highly sought-after classic Ferrari for a number of reasons, and its easy to see why.
