- Sans réserve

La Testarossa, mythe automobile des années 80, a fait rêver des milliers d''hommes de toutes générations. Ce coupé à l''allure exceptionnelle ne fut jamais proposé en cabriolet à une exception près, celui produit pour Giovanni Agnelli, patron de Fiat, et vendu par Artcurial en février 2016. Pourtant, la ligne sculpturale de la Testarossa s''y prête particulièrement bien et notre exemplaire en témoigne. Conçue par les ateliers Lorenz & Rankl, dont le sérieux est reconnu, cette conversion a donc été étudiée avec des renforts de carrosserie ainsi que la création d''une cinématique de capote semi-électrique permettant à la voiture de conserver son élégance, capote fermée comme ouverte. De couleur jaune Giallo associée à un intérieur en cuir noir, ce spider est en excellent état général. Côté entretien mécanique, elle a récemment fait l''objet d''une importante révision incluant les courroies. Elle fut précédemment entretenue au sein du réseau Ferrari, par la concession Maserati Trident. Son historique est assez clair puisqu''elle n''aurait connu que trois propriétaires depuis l''origine. Son faible kilométrage, d''un peu plus de 20 000 km, est lié à son histoire, cette voiture étant restée au sein d''une collection sans rouler beaucoup. Elle sera livrée accompagnée de ses livrets d''origine, de ses factures d''entretien et de son échappement d''origine puisqu''elle est aujourd''hui équipée d''un échappement Tubistyle en inox. Ce Spider allie beauté et rareté, et offre l''opportunité de rouler cheveux au vent au son du 12 cylindres Ferrari.

The Testarossa, mythical automobile from the 1980s, was a dream of men of all generations. This exceptional-looking coupé was never offered in a cabriolet form, with one exception, the one that was specifically produced for Giovanni Agnelli, the owner of Fiat, and sold by Artcurial in February 2016. However, the sculptural lines of the Testarossa lends itself particularly well to being converted into a spider, as this example demonstrates. Performed by the renowned Lorenz & Rankl workshop, this conversion has been carefully engineered with relevant body reinforcements, as well as the creation of a semi-electric convertible top with a fully sorted out kinematics that allows the car to retain its elegance. In Giallo yellow with black leather interior, this spider is in excellent overall condition. It has recently undergone a major mechanical overhaul, including a belts'' change. It was previously maintained within the Ferrari dealer network, through the Maserati Trident dealership. Its history is quite clear, as it had just three owners from new. Its low mileage, just over 20,000 km, is linked to its history, as it remained within a collection without much use. It will be delivered with its original booklets, service invoices and exhaust of origin, since it is now equipped with a stainless steel Tubistyle exhaust. This Spider combines both beauty and rarity, and offers the opportunity to drive hair blowing in the wind with the sound of its Ferrari 12-cylinders.
