1992 Ferrari 512 TR For Sale by Auction

For sale in our forthcoming auction in Paris, on 8 february 2019. French title Chassis No ZFFLA40B000094514 - Delivered new in France - Only 3 owners - From Collection Grigio Ferro The Testarossa was a fast and powerful berlinetta, possessing very high-level performance and road handling abilities, however, the 512 TR which succeeded it was a better car: we can evaluate its general performance increase by 10%. Ferrari's technicians are to be praised, as they managed to get 421 hp out of the 12 cylinders without increasing the engine capacity and by seriously reducing the toxicity of the exhaust gas emission, thanks to a very precise fuel injection and ignition control via computer. Road handling was improved on the 512TR, not only by replacing the suspension specifications but also by reinforcing the tubular chassis, also through the use of more advanced tyres allowing to achieve a lower centre of gravity and finally, by revising aerodynamic parameters. The braking system was also greatly enhanced by the use of wider front discs, new master cylinders, pistons, cooling ducts, etc… all of this translated into shorter braking distance and equally, by the 40kg weight gain on the new car. The tubular chassis' toughness qualities were improved, the suspension brackets and the steering mount were modified. The gearbox as well as the engine were placed lower at the rear-end of the chassis, consequently improving the centre of gravity position. Aesthetically, the 512 TR does not have major distinctive differences compared to the Testarossa however, some refine touches make it look softer and yet, less angular. This particular example was sold new by Charles Pozzi SA in Lyon to a certain Yves Dupont-Ferrier from Grenoble on 21 September 1992. It would then be handed over to Michel Soulacroup living in Paris, before getting acquired by the actual owner. The latter would then entrust this beautiful 512 TR (in red colour until that time) to the Lecoq workshop, in order to repaint the bodywork into Grigio Ferro, the favorite colour of the cars in his collection. The car covered 41,500 km since coming out of the factory and has been serviced regularly, as per the manufacturer's recommendations. A major service including belt change is to be done in January 2019, just before the auction. The car comes with its service logbook. This example is therefore in an ideal condition. The dark grey colour with tan leather interior brings an elegance and a breathtaking sophistication to this 512 Testarossa, which will undoubtedly make enthusiasts fall in love.
