How To Check Oil Level Ferrari Testarossa

Click Here --->

The Ferrari 348 was equipped with a dry-sump oil system to prevent oil starvation at high speeds and during hard cornering. The oil level could only be accurately checked on the dipstick when the engine was running due to this setup. The 348 was fitted with adjustable ride-height suspension and a removable rear sub-frame to speed up the removal of the engine for maintenance.

1984-1991 Ferrari Testarossa article highlights:\n\n\n\nThe 1984-1991 Ferrari Testarossa had supercar performance in its day, but it\u2019s really more of a super grand-touring carThough not as fast as its rival the Countach, the Testarossa is by far the easier car to live with on a daily basis1987-1991 are the most reliable Testarossa years; expect to pay around $120,000-$130,000 at least for a well-maintained example\n\n\n\nIn most people\u2019s minds, handing over a mortgage-worth of cash for the keys to a Ferrari means getting into a serious supercar. But not every Prancing Horse is a super sports car or worth a king\u2019s ransom. Some classic and used Ferraris are neither, but that doesn\u2019t make them any less special or worthy of their badges. And perhaps the best example of this is the Ferrari Testarossa.\n\n\n\nThe Ferrari Testarossa isn\u2019t a supercar, it\u2019s a super GT\n\n\n\n\n1987 Ferrari Testarossa National Motor Museum\/Heritage Images\/Getty Images\n\n\n\n1984 Ferrari Testarossa rear 3\/4 Ferrari\n\n\n\n\n1984-1991 Ferrari TestarossaEngine4.9-liter flat-12Horsepower385 hp (Euro-spec)Torque361 lb-ft (Euro-spec)TransmissionFive-speed manualCurb weight3320 lbs (dry)3700 lbs (with fluids)0-60 mph time5.0 seconds\n\n\n\nEven those who didn\u2019t grow up watching Miami Vice are likely familiar with the Ferrari Testarossa. However, while many recognize this quintessential 1980s poster car, they also likely misunderstand what it is. Underneath those iconic side-strakes, the Testarossa isn\u2019t a \u2018true\u2019 supercar, though it offered super performance in its day. But then, Ferrari didn\u2019t design to be a supercar in the first place.\n\n\n\nAfter Lamborghini sprung the Miura on the world, practically every exotic brand started working on mid-engine road cars. Ferrari\u2019s first attempt came only a few months later in the shape of the 206 Dino. But its V6 engine meant it wasn\u2019t quite on the V12-powered Miura\u2019s level. So, a few years after the Daytona debuted, Ferrari launched the 512 BB, which had a mid-mounted 4.9-liter flat-12. Yes, it\u2019s called \u2018Berlinetta Boxer,\u2019 but the 512 BB really has a flat-12.\n\n\n\nAnyway, while the 512 BB handled and rode even better than the Miura, it had a problem. See, by the time it unveiled the Daytona, Ferrari\u2019s V12-powered cars had morphed from sports cars to grand tourers, aka \u2018GTs.\u2019 They could certainly handle themselves on a twisty mountain road, but they were really about crossing continents in high-speed comfort. And the 512 BB, though more refined than the Miura, was really a sports car, not a GT.\n\n\n\nThis didn\u2019t matter initially for the U.S. as Ferrari never sold the 512 BB here for emissions reasons. However, because the U.S. market was vital for the brand, its successor needed to be quick, stylish, and most importantly, comfy. And that successor was the 1984 Ferrari Testarossa.\n\n\n\nIt\u2019s not as fast as the Countach, but the Testarossa is the comfier classic cruiser\u2014and it\u2019s still worth driving\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nApart from the Lamborghini Countach, few cars embody the 1980s better than the Ferrari Testarossa. I mean, there\u2019s a folding mirror built into the glovebox, for Don Johnson\u2019s sake. Yet while these rad road warriors have equal street presences, the Testarossa is better equipped to live on the street.\n\n\n\nYes, in a drag race, the Raging Bull beats the Prancing Horse. However, where the Lambo is hot, cramped, and a bit crude, the Ferrari is spacious, relaxing, and refined. But that doesn\u
