The Ferrari Testarossa is a sports car built by Ferrari, introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October 1984 as the successor to the 512 BBi.

One of the most recognisable features of its Pininfarina design are the long side strakes, made to comply with laws given the large size of the side intakes providing air to the side-mounted radiators, whose position made the car wider at the rear than at the front. They also improved on shortcomings of the 512 BBi's front mounted radiator design, such as luggage space and cockpit heat.

Its name references the successful Ferrari 500 and 250 Testa Rossa series, with the name "Testa Rossa" being Italian for "Red Head", referring to the colour in which the camshaft covers were painted on sports racing models.

Powered by a rear-mid, longitudinally mounted engine, the Testarossa is the first Ferrari flat-12 road car to be fitted with a four valves per cylinder configuration, capable of producing 390 bhp at 6300 rpm for European models, and 380 bhp at 5750 rpm for US market models.

7,177 units of the Testarossa were produced for seven years with few visual alterations, and the model was succeeded in 1991 by the 512TR.
