For some reason, the Testarossa’s edgy, late 1980s philosophy drifted into obscurity. It didn’t do too well on the second-hand market either, with prices dropping significantly at one point.
Lately, though, it is being brought back in the eyes of the public by collectors and aficionados. So, since the Testarossa and its evolutions, the 512 TR and 512M, are making a comeback, Garage Italia Customs was commissioned to modify a unique variant.
This particular 512 TR was customized by Scuderia Baldini & Co, which explains the missing roof, as Ferrari officially created only one al fresco TR. The company then ordered a custom wrap from GIC to further emphasize the car’s exclusiveness, and the latter chose a Burberry-pattern.
Now, the project’s attention to detail is astonishing, as even the side air intake “blades” were carefully wrapped in the contentious vinyl. Oh, and did you see the glass engine cover with GIC’s logo on it?
Not many details are available, but we expect the stock 4.9-litre flat-twelve developing the factory standard 428 HP and 491 Nm (362 lb-ft) of torque. Enough to get you from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 319 km/h (195 mph).
