Side by Side Comparison of the Ferrari Testarossa Luggage Set and the Ferrari 512TR Luggage Set
The Ferrari Testarossa first appeared on in the USA in 1985 starting with the 2 year only Flying Mirror version and subsequent variations after that. Overall the Testarossa model was produced from 1985 to 1991. During these production years, Ferrari offered custom fitted Testarossa luggage by Schedoni. Some would say the Ferrari 512TR model is just a continuation of the Testarossa but I think the 512TR should be considered a separate model all together due to the enormous number of changes and improvements made on these cars for 1992 through 1994. Many believe the luggage found in both the Testarossa and 512TR are the same but are in fact very different.

Above: Notice each piece has the Testarossa logo pressed into the luggage.
Above: These luggage pieces for both Testarossa and 512TR are the same. These pieces sit in the front trunk above the wheel wells.
Above: 512TR luggage placement. Notice the luggage piece in the center of the trunk in front of the leather tool kit. I believe the 512TR set has more usable space in the 2 bigger pieces of luggage that fit in the center trunk.
Above: The 512TR luggage set is on the left. The 512TR briefcase is much slimmer than the comparable Testarossa briefcase.
Above: The Center Trunk luggage consists of 2 pieces. The 512TR center trunk pieces ( on the left) are much deeper allowing for more useful packing space. The Testarossa center trunk pieces (on the right) are a different shape and much thinner and therefore less practical.
Above: This is the 6th piece of luggage found only with the Testarossa. This piece will be placed behind the back seats and tied down with leather straps. The 512TR did away with this piece and increase the volume of the 2 front center trunk luggage pieces to compensate. The 512TR does have leather straps behind the seats to be used as luggage tie down straps but the only one that comes close to fitting is the briefcase.
