Compared to the Testarossa, the 512 TR received minor changes, such as lowered centre of gravity for better handling, redesigned interior for better ergonomics, and facelifted exterior for better aerodynamics, which was followed by improvements with its engine and gearbox.
The car's name was composed of "5" which refers to the engine's cubic capacity and "12" referring to the number of cylinders, whilst the "TR" was an abbreviation of Testarossa.
2,280 units of the 512 TR were produced by the time the F512 M succeeded it in 1994.
