Ferrari offered the Ferrari Testarossa as a mid-engines sports car that carried a 12-cylinder engine. The year was 1984 and it is safe to say that Ferrari had hit the right chord with this one.

This two-door coupé was gifted a five-speed manual gearbox that was mounted at the rear. It is the kind of car that narrates the story of its own evolution having been conceived in 1981 and only coming to be three years later.

A notable occurrence about this Pininfarina designed car was its departure from the well-established curvaceous boxer to something totally of its own kind. This one had the side strakes that ran from the doors all the way to the rear fenders as required by laws in several countries.

The Testarossa further carried twin radiators that were paired with the engine at the rear as opposed to a single radiator placed up-front. It is the combination of the strakes and the rear-mounted side radiators that kept the engine cool while remaining stylish and flowing with the times.

For the drivetrain, the Testarossa picked a naturally aspirated flat-12 engine that took in 4.9 liters. With this engine, this uniquely designed car delivers 385 hp or 287Kw at 6,300 rpm and pulls 361 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm.

It is through such cars that we experience the exponential power of car design.
