1990 Ferrari Testarossa Found in Mesa

1990 Ferrari Testarossa

Spotted in Mesa, Arizona is a 1990 Ferrari Testarossa for $87,000 USD.   This car has recently been serviced and title is in hand by the seller.  The Testarossa does look best in black offset with “Crema” leather interior.    The car underwent a full “engine-out” belts, water pump and roller/tensioner service including a new clutch and pressure plate that was completed at 58,291 miles.   However , the ad does not state how long ago the service was done.  It is very possible its due for  another major service.  Major engine our services are recommended every 5 years or 15,000 miles whichever comes first.    Brand new tires on the stock OEM wheels. Also recently had a clear bra installed on the hood, mirrors and rear quarters.  In 1990 , Ferrari produced 452 examples for the USA Market.   This was the highest year of production between 1985 to 1991.

1990 Ferrari Testarossa

Spotted in Cow Hollow near San Francisco, a 1990 Ferrari Testarossa for $115,000 USD.   This car has 31,986 miles since new.   The seller has done a fresh 30k major service last week however the engine looks pretty dirty considering the engine must be removed.   That is the best time to detail the engine and the engine bay.  This was always a California car so it has all the proper emission controls and exhausts.   It is only a 2 owner car with a Utah title.    This car includes the original window sticker, original bill of sale , tool kit and owners manual.   Every service every done has been kept in a folder.   Before the sale, the seller plans to put on a new set of tires.

1058 Jaguar XK150S Roadster

Spotted in New  York is a 1958 Jaguar XK150S Roadster for $89,500 USD.  The Jaguar XK150S  is a British sports car built by Jaguar between 1957 and 1962.  It was the successor to the XK140 model.   These are such beautiful cars but I haven’t had the pleasure of driving one yet.  This is a numbers matching  example that has been under the same ownership since 1963.   It is red with red interior and would make a great restoration project for any enthusiast.

Does this XK150S use the 3.4 Liter Engine with Triple SU Carburettors?  Post your comments!

1985 Testarossa Monospecchio Today

1985 Testarossa Monospecchio

Today I had an opportunity to spend a day  with  a 1985 Ferrari Testarossa Monospecchio.   It has a completely different feel from a 1992-1994 Ferrari 512TR.    The 1985-1986 Monospecchio or Flying Mirror have subtle differences compared to the 1987 -1997 production years.
