Very interesting article about a little tuner from Germany in the 1980s. Did you know they built a 1000 HP, 236 MPH Testarossa?

Damn that Ferrari 512 look SICK!

Yep. Did you see the road-legal 962?

FastestLaps  1w ago @aaayy

That's just a LeMans car with number plate. It's like the Dauer Porsches.

Except the Dauer Porsche’s were faster than the Le Mans cars. First road car to do 250 (not including the Callaway Sledgehammer). The Koenig Porsche 911 is actually pretty cool though.

@Shaggy, Max Power
I totally agree with both of you.

Also the Testarossa is one of the best known Ferraris of all time.

@ Max Power: Again, I totally agree with you, the Testarossa is an excellent car, I saw either a black one of these or a 512 TR in Annapolis Maryland once, I was riding with my Grandpa in his 1997 Mazda Protégé when it passed us, it blew my mind, that was the first Ferrari I ever saw in the flesh.

I love this car! It's a timeless classic, with very good performance stats, even by today's standards. Long live the "Redhead"!

Howcome my Testarosa convertible always tops out at 293 km/h in the classic Sega arcade game "Outrun"?

The "Red Head" was the first Ferrari I ever saw and it's still one of my favorites. Just has a real slick and racy yet old school look to it.

This are the numbers from the link Thiago_Lins posted:

0-100 5.6
0-160 11.6
0-200 18.8
Top Speed 297 km/h
0-400m 13.4 (1/4mile 13.5?)

Also, power is 390ps(385hp) and as the times alredy here are slower, I think that 5.3 is 0-60 not 0-62, from where it comes?

I think this car is a double post since we already have Ferrari 512 TR.
