    Hi gents,

    just received the technical manual for my Testarossa.
    142 Pages.....wow!!!! Mhmm, I have never read such a voluminous book with so less black/white pics;-) They (Ferrari) give me a hard time to go through.
    But the very, very best thing is the tank-volumen:
    133 Liters!!!!!!!!!!
    Wow, I`m rapturous!!!! That means I can drive over 1.200 km with 1 fuell???? Or what is the reason for such a huge tank;-))))

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Congrats on your new motor!
    The BB has a 120 litre tank, and this gets me around 250 miles (400K?) if I'm lucky. I'm sure the TR is a touch more fuel efficient, just don't expect to get to Modena without filling up...

    Hi Castex,

    thanks for the infos. Of course, I know whats going on with 12 cylinder, 5 liter, 400 PS and the poor 133 liter tank....I was just amused and kidding;-)))

    Please post some pics here from your BB...hungry to CU car.

    it's not so much to see on the pic, but i would guess it's a 512 bb

    Yes, jiemmytreviJUNIOR
    its a 512 BB
    The predecessor of the Testarossa.
    To be 100% correct, between the 512 BB and the testa comes first the 512 BBi.

    It's a 1973 365GT/4BB, in marrone (chestnut / metallic brown).
    You can tell it from a 512 by the lack of front spoiler - mine's smooth and fluted like a boat, the lack of NACA duct in front of the rear wheels, the thinner wheels front and back of identical sizes. The wheelarches are less flared and the car is not as wide all round. It's also lighter, and faster I think. I love it; thanks for your interest.

    Castex & Trevi,

    o.k., that shows how less I know about older/vintage Ferraris;-(((
    Thanks for the input gents. I have to learn.

    Just back from a 200 km trip over the highway with my new Testarossa.
    I drove the car to my garage master for inspection.

    Gents, its amazing!!!!
    What a power, what a sound, what a damn f**** beast!!!!!
    First time I drove the car to the top-speed...no I realy can`t describe this feeling. I have got tears in my eyes and was howling a bit. A totaly emontional moment to me. I pushed the testa in the 4th gear to max. and up in the 5th gear.....unbelievable!!!!!!!! Seems like neverending power and the sound drive me crazy. I`m still deep impressed.

    Will let you know more from my beloved new toy the next few days;-)

    I recognise RF's famous blue garage doors in the picture above! Please send him my best regards. Where is the link announcing your new purchase, complete with pictures?

    Also, how the &*%$@ do I edit my personal profile on this new software??

    Time for a bottle of big South African red wine methinks!! :-D

    Cheers, MARK
