The 512 TR was the replacement for the Testarossa, and was announced for the 1992 model year. 2261 cars were made until production stopped in 1994. The new car witnessed a return to a model title using characters. The figure “5″ referring to the cubic capacity of the engine in litres and the “12″ to the number of cylinders, whilst the “TR” was an abbreviation of Testarossa (Testa Rossa).

Whilst the basic body shape is similar to the Pininfarina designed Testarossa, several changes were made for the TR. The main external visual differences were an updated nose and tail, the louvre design on the engine lid as well as new wheels. The cabin was updated with changes made to the seats, steering wheel design and trim details.

Mechanically there were numerous changes to the engine and gearbox. Not visually apparent was that the engine and transmission assembly location in the chassis had been dropped by 30mm, to lower the centre of gravity, thus improving the already high standard of road holding. The four valves per cylinder, flat twelve, dry sump engine was an upgraded version of that used in the Testarossa, whilst maintaining the same cubic capacity. Power rose to 428bhp, allowing the car to achieve 0-62 in 4.8 seconds with a staggering top speed of 194mph.
