1996 FERRARI F512M

Rosso Corsa with Crema


  • Description
  • Specification

One of only 41 UK right-hand drive examples. The F512 M is the ultimate and final evolution of the Testarossa. Updates from the previous model included fixed headlights rather than the older retractable style. The front bumper and grille were restyled to bear a resemblance to the F355 and the 456, with new turn signal indicators and fog lamps. The rear also carried cues from its siblings, and it was fitted with round taillights, which were similar to those of the F355 and would become a signature Ferrari design for years to come. Inside, the F512 M received some more updates, such as a new, more modern steering wheel, adjustable aluminium pedals, a more refined air-conditioning system, and updated trim. New five-spoke split-rim alloy wheels were fitted to complete the look. The F512 M’s mechanicals also received a number of upgrades. Its suspension was updated with gas-filled shock absorbers, and a Bosch ABS system was fitted. The engine retained the same cubic capacity and fuel-injection system as the 512 TR, but it also received a number of upgrades internally, resulting in a rise to 440 brake horsepower. Titanium alloy connecting rods and new forged aluminum pistons were fitted, along with a lightened crankshaft, which helped to increase the compression ratio to 10.4:1. A new stainless steel exhaust was fitted, once again helping to raise the horsepower. This particular UK supplied exampled was supplied new to Stratstone of Wilmslow who registered the car as their demonstrator. It would change hands on a couple of occasions before being purchased in October 1997 by an enthusiastic owner who would go on to keep the car until 2015. Having been serviced by the same Ferrari dealer in 2015, 2016 and most recently in November 2017, the car is ready to go to its next custodian and is complete with its original books including the service/warranty supplement, tool kit, car cover and history file.
