    Very nice Markus ...

    There also exists a bigger 512TR model (NOT Revell or Burrago) which is quite expensive but very nicely detailed ... find that one too !

    Mel - I also have a bigger Testarossa model but no 512 TR! Would be very nice to have a bigger 512 TR model too!

    Thanks, Mel! I just found one on E-Bay for EUR 210. Hmm that’s quite some money for a used model car.

    I took my 512 TR for my commute to my office this morning. Shortly after arriving at my office I got a WhatsApp message from a fellow owner (and F-Chat user) of a 512 M with the pic below. The comment was “My friends are spying on you, Markus”.

    It turned out that a friend of him was driving behind me thinking that I (nearly) have the same car as the 512M owner. He made a photo and sent it to our friend (512 M owner) who then forwarded it to me.

    It is funny how small the world is sometimes.

    this looks like a koenig body kit with BBS rims?
    but the engine seems original when I see the exhaust

    He had aftermarket tips. This car was whisper quiet. Just coasting at idle. His plate said ARCHGTR.

    Funny, my first reaction was "fiero", but then you see it's a real one. Then my next thought was "first time I see a body kit trying real hard to look like a fiero":)

    This is a fun thread :D

    Seems like a good place to ask: is a TR a prerequisite to a happy life?

    I have a 550 and a manual 430. But I still feel empty inside. I see how much fun all you TR owners are having with your cars and I feel like I'm missing out!

    it sure is.... especially when you have the TR in pieces (over 1000 to the platers, many more to powder coating, then wondering how you are going to put everything together again!....but it is all part of the fun ,the challenge , the satisfaction when you have it all back on the road again,

    I need to join you :D I was thinking this would be a good 4-car lineup for me and for anyone else who is Ferrari-addicted:

    Car 1: Boxer, TR or 512TR
    Car 2: 550 or 575
    Car 3: 599 or F12
    Car 4: 360, 430 or 458

    That covers a lot of bases with a 4 car set. It provides both 8 and 12 cylinder mid-engine configurations. And it covers classic, near-classic and modern 12 cylinder F cars.

    I'm halfway there now, just need to save more money...

    I have virtually the same exact list, except that I'm sure Car 1 is a TR (preferably black) and I've combined cars 2-3 on your list into just one front-engine v-12. I'm only 1/3 of the way there.
