1959 Ferrari 250 Testarossa Replica

This Ferrari 250TR was hand-built in the USA in the 1980’s, based on a very tired set of running gear from a completely different Ferrari.

It boasts a 2953cc V12 and a 4-speed manual transmission, and weighs in at only 800kg!

Imported into Australia in 2007, it had just been sold when I took these photos, and was destined to go back to the U.S.

The 250TR won 10 World Sports Car Championship races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans (1958, 1960 and 1961), the Sebring 12 Hours (1958, 1959 and 1961) and the Targa Florio in 1958.

This car has previously been displayed the the New York Museum.
