    I am bringing this car to market soon.

    However, I wanted to post it here ,exclusively, before it goes to the general public.

    I bought this car one year ago after it was shown in Monterrey last summer.

    This is the nicest example of a "Flying Mirror" that I have seen yet.

    Highlights:

    -Rare US Spec, Black on black
    -10k miles
    -Full engine out service ($27,000+) just completed at Competizione ( http://www.competizionecars.com/ ) outside of Washington DC, see a couple of shop pics:

    https://bethesdaforce04.smugmug.com/1985-Ferrari-Testarossa-Flying-Mirror/n-2Wc6Gt/

    -Original paint
    -Fitted with original exhaust, however Tubi exhaust included
    -Fitted with new Michelin Pilot Sport tires on 16 inch center lock wheels, however the original metric set with the TRX tires included
    -Full set of original black luggage
    -Full documentation since 1986 to today
    -3 keys, all books, manuals, leather pouch, tool kit, car cover, new leather mats
    -Very minor leather shrinkage on passenger side vent

    Selling to make room for a new 2020 Ford GT that I have incoming.

    $205,000 obo

    Only serious inquiries, this is the real thing. Please pm me here. More pictures and documentation available.

    Wow, black/black. I don't think I have ever seen an original flying mirror TR in that color.

    A second wow for this car. Original black paint and US spec. Low miles. Complete (records, books, tools, luggage, etc). Fresh major. Double set of original wheels! And flying mirror...!! I would buy this car at this price in a heartbeat. GLWS.

    Nat, You seem to be the man when it comes to the Red Heads, how many of these early models were specd with Nero on Nero? It seems quite rare as you always see the brown interior. Thanks

    Im passionate but by no means do I know it all.
    I know there were 121 us 1985 cars (568 total). I’m trying to know more to the extend u are asking me but given that 80% or so of Ferrari were red that leaves us with like 25 for other colors. I know a few prugna, white single mirror. My guess is 10 cars but will look to confirm.

    Wow, great spec! :)

    A friend of mine sold his 85 TR several years ago, right after a major, for 40K. I'm going to send him this thread so he knows what a dope he is o_O

    205k bargain price for an early tr with low miles and California legal, should find a home in someone's collection.

    NO, just someone trying to "create" a market. It has happened before, it will happen again. :) BEAUTIFUL car by the way. Unfortunately out of my reach.

    I have the Car & Driver Magazine (racy red-head) where they drove a '85 black/black Testarossa from Lake Forest Sports Cars.
