    After lurking for the past 7rs(basically waiting for one to fall in my lap - which of course did not happen), I'm now ready to pull the trigger. Gonna be patient though. It took about 9mos to find the perfect 328 for me and luckily got one from an Fchatter that had been owned by another Fchatter for several yrs - great car.

    This will be my first 12cyl Ferrari so pretty pumped but wanted to send out feelers for anybody that might be on the fence about selling...

    Prefer Red/Tan but would consider Black/Tan IF black paint is pristine

    I'm going to pull a reverse Mel. Why not a Testarossa? :)

    TOP !

    Good Question Sam !

    Have a close look at Welcome to Red Headed for all the differences between Testarossa and 512TR !

    And why did the Factory implement all thes changes ... :D ?

    Whatever you find ... let's roll !

    Take a look at my TR in Silver/RED if that works for you. It is 50K less than what quality 512TRs are selling for.

    Go for a 512TR, having owned several Testarossa's and now a 512TR I will tell you it's worth the difference.

    Hi, don't be reluctant to jump on the right car. These cars are constructed very well. I think it's tough to find a lemon 512TR.

    Do you mean "mint" or just "unused"? ;)

    Still searching - almost bought docs but had issues with shield decals. Great car otherwise. Motorcars evidently sold theirs. So will keep lurking and welcome any word of mouth leads. Have three 8cyl Ferraris but have always longed for the 512TR. Think it will be a perfect addition to the garage

    Took me 6mos to find the perfect 328 so am prepared to do the same

    If you are serious, this is a serious one to consider.

    Not many like this available, and fits your criteria. I have no affiliation with this car, but have heard about it.

    Don't waste time , god isn't making anymore like these available for sale at this price.

    I saw that one setup to go to auction. It is a beautiful car - just not the right one for me

    If only there were as many 512TR's available to choose from as there are over in Europe.....
