250 TESTA ROSSA 1958

250 TESTA ROSSA
1958
Scale: 1:43
Collection: GT & Sport
Limited Edition: no more than 10,000 pieces
The 250 Testa Rossa was a race car model built by Ferrari in 1957, designed to offer customers already racing with the 500 TRC, a much more powerful engine on a similar chassis to help retain the former model’s great handling.

Rumor had it that the FIA would place a three-litre limit on Sports Cars and this indeed proved to be the case. As a result the reliable V12 from the 250 Gran Turismo was used, albeit radically tuned with six twin-choke carburetors.

The 250 Testa Rossa was a race car model built by Ferrari in 1957, designed to offer customers already racing with the 500 TRC, a much more powerful engine on a similar chassis to help retain the former model’s great handling.

Rumor had it that the FIA would place a three-litre limit on Sports Cars and this indeed proved to be the case. As a result the reliable V12 from the 250 Gran Turismo was used, albeit radically tuned with six twin-choke carburetors.

This car had only the valve covers painted in red but it still kept the Testa Rossa name and won the Manufacturer’s World Championship in 1958. The 1:43 model is true to the original and offers a great way to capture and commemorate a classic victory!
