Ferrari, a name synonymous with the most sophisticated cars in the world, is best known for visionary planning, excellence in automobile production and world-class design. In 1958, racer Piere Drogo, with the intention of piloting the car in as many races as possible, enhanced performance by installing an air inlet under the doors and improving the cooling of the rear wheel drum brakes of the 250 Testa Rossa. As one of the most successful race cars of all time, it led Ferrari to win several Sports Car World Championships and three Le Mans victories (1958 / 60 / 61), among others. With its prowess, its unique beauty and elegance, the Testa Rossa touched off a fascination that has stayed with racing enthusiasts around the world to this day. Nearly fifty years later, The Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa 1957 is still celebrated as Ferrari’s most successful racing car. In fact, this sleek champion was so highly coveted, it was bought at auction in Maranello, Italy in 2009 for as high a 9.02 million Euros! Now you can own a perfect replication of the original...for much, much less!
This precision die-cast replica is one of the most gorgeous collectors items you’ll find. Our spectacular new model, manufactured by CMC, boasts 1:18 scale, perfectly restored and painted in deep black with a flamboyant Ferrari red and white border. This dynamic model is handcrafted from nearly 1,640 single parts, with special features including a sharp, detail-exact replication of the cockpit, dashboard complete with instruments and controls, real leather seats, fully wired and plumbed engine, authentic paint and real rubber tires. Precision in every detail — the model also displays the sleek metallic silver color headlights — a feature distinctly characteristic to the 250 Testa Rossa 1957. The Dunlop racing tires can be removed by unscrewing the Borrani knock-off wheel nuts.
