What are we driving this week, Testarossa, Countach, E-Type or GT3? | Arabia Motors part 24

The Ferrari Testarossa was first unveiled at the 1984 Paris Auto Show, quickly becoming the poster car of a generation. The design that would rival the Lamborghini Countach was a drastic change from the 512 BB that the car derived from. Not only did Ferrari sway from the smooth lines seen on its prior, they also radically changed the engine from what was formally seen in the BB. It had four-valves per cylinder, Marelli electronic ignition, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, and capable of producing 390 bhp from the 4943 cc horizontally opposed 12 cylinders. The 0 to 60 mph time was an impressive (even by today’s standards) time of 5.3 seconds and top speed was over 180 mph.

Introduced in 1974, the Lamborghini Countach wowed the world with its unconventional looks, which were startling when compared with more conservative sports cars of the day. The Countach was the first supercar to pioneer the wedge shape – a design that would heavily influence car design in the next two decades. It was also a mid-engined design, carrying the torch first lit by the Lamborghini Miura in 1966, but the cabin was moved much further forward to accommodate the large engine. Again, this was a groundbreaking design feature that is still seen in the top supercars of today.

The Jaguar E Type’s magnificent inline-6 engine, speed capabilities, and most important of all, a classic, sleek look, have mesmerized car aficionados all around the world for decades.

In order to support Porsche’s profitable clubsport racing endeavors, the Porsche 911 GT3 was created.
Deep new front bumper with conspicuous splitter, three sizable air ducts, and other distinctive features are just a few examples of what this car is all about.
A massive wing dominates the back, and the rear bumper has vertical air ducts that serve as ram air intakes for the engine that is placed at the back. With aluminum for the wings, roof, doors, and engine lid, the basic bodyshell is the same as the 911 Carrera S.
