    I am looking to update the appearance of my TR and was thinking of an 512 Front bumper assembly from the 90's. I'd keep the old parts of course to put it back to factory. Any thoughts as where I might find something like this?

    An aftermarket fiberglass part I think would be acceptable.

    Nick at Forza did some Fglass fenders for me. Maybe he can do a front 512TR bumper for you ?

    I think ebay has a 512TR nose piece for sale....maybe check. You would have to change the park light assemblies and grill too. I think the 512TR is the PERFECT car...no improvements needed. The nose looks great and is a big improvement over the TR nose. This could be a fairly expensive upgrade. I also love the 512TR wheels!

    I'm all for it, especially considering you could always go back to stock by simply switching out the new pieces.

    Take a look at both www.hamann-motorsport.de and www.koenig-specials.com. They list pieces to rebody the Testarossa to a 512tr, 512m, or several custom styles.

    Thanks all. Lung certainly has a very nice looking TR, not too wild either. The Koenig TR is just a little too much over the top, for me anyway. I do appreciate the replies from all of you. Keep them coming :-0

    maybe it was lung, but someone put a 512 or 512M front end on a TR and had to re route all the ducting as it didnt match up. Point is it wasn't a simple bolt on change like you'd think it would be.
