The Ferrari 512 TR was the evolution of the Testarossa and production started in 1991. The interior was redesigned to increase comfort and ergonomics and the exterior facelift was designed to improve aerodynamics. Our friend Dylan Don shot a mint Giallo Modena example and we want to share his stylish photographies with you.
The 512 TR sports a 4,9-litre longitudinally rear-mounted flat-12 48 valves engine. It is lubricated via a dry sump system, and has a compression ratio of 10.00:1, combining to provide a maximum power output of 422 hp and 491 Nm of torque. The Testarossa engine was extensively reworked. Nikasil liners were added, along with a new air intake system, Bosch engine management system, larger intake valves, and a revised exhaust system. In addition to the higher peak power, the modifications delivered a more broad power band for better acceleration.
The car can accelerate from 0–100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and can complete a standing kilometre in 23.4 seconds. Top speed? 313,8 km/h.
Gearshifting effort, a prolonged complaint on the Testarossa, was eased with a new single-plate clutch, sliding ball bearings, and better angle for the gearshift knob. The braking system included larger cross-drilled front rotors. Quicker steering, lower-profile tyres, and new shock settings improved handling. Most importantly, engine and gearbox position was rethought, which improved the centre of gravity, aiding the handling and making the car easier to drive.
The interior also received updates, with the centre console split from the dashboard, and the climate controls relocated. Pietro Camardella at Pininfarina was tasked with redesigning the body of the car for better integration of the newly included spoilers and the new engine cover. The design was updated in line with the recently introduced 348.
