Ferrari Testarossa Restomod: Modernized with respect

CAR While the restomod has already magnified so many cars, the world of ferrarists is still wary of anything that could “distort” a Maranello model. But here, we validate.

 
Officine Fioravanti, a Swiss specialist in the restoration of classic cars, embarked on this project, which some would consider sacrilegious. The starting point is one of the most popular Testarossa: the “Monospecchio” (single rear-view mirror), the very first version produced from 1984 to 1986.

Externally, practically nothing has changed. You have to be a connoisseur to notice that the rims have other dimensions, so that you can put on modern tires in the car, not only the famous Michelin TRX, as untraceable as they are unpayable. This Testarrossa is also a little closer to the ground, thanks to adjustable Öhlins shock absorbers.

Faster

Fioravanti has indeed retouched the chassis just what it takes (adjustable anti-roll bars also, new Brembo brakes more efficient), in order to sharpen the initial behavior of the Testarossa while letting it be a comfortable GT, rather than making it a supercar. That said, the engine has not been forgotten.

The 4.9-liter flat-12-cylinder is of course retained, but thanks to new pistons, new crankshafts, new injectors and a new electronic power plant, the power now exceeds 500 hp. Better: the maximum speed goes from 6,700 to… 9,000 laps! It must sing well, the 12 cylinders… Add that fioravanti’s modifications have lightened the Testarossa by some 120 kilos, and you get a top speed of more than 320 km/h, compared to 290 km/h originally.

Increased quality

Finally inside, Fioravanti has obviously redone everything. The quality of finish, a weak point of the original Ferrari Testarossa, is noticeably better, among other things thanks to the replacement of some plastics by aluminum. And top of the top in an icon of the 80s: the car phone. Vintage at will, but Bluetooth and perfectly functional.
