Description

One of the most expensive classic Ferraris. Period. Called Testa Rossa because of the red camshaft covers, Ferrari 250 TR is praised for its unusual bodywork made by Scaglietti.

This very curve depict the front fender, visually separated from the central “nacelle” body of the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. Such approach was adapted from F1 race cars with air ducts across the front drum brakes in order to provide better cooling. The design was not just effective but also controversial. First it made the car unstable at high speeds and second – it was so unusual that Ferrari began changing the look soon after its production with designs provided by Carozzeria Touring and Pininfarina.

Ferrari-250-TR

Ralph Lauren classic car collection keeps the 14th of 34 in total 250 TR cars built by Ferrari. Scuderia Ferrari owned just a couple, the rest were delivered to a private clients. Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa was extremely successful racer with Le Mans victories in 1958, 1960 and 1961, as well as many more, including Targa Florio, Sebring, Buenos Aires and Pescara. It`s winning march was interrupted in 1959 by Aston Martin DBR1. There are just 3 racing cars won both Le Mans and World Sportscar Championship in a same year – Ferrari 375 Plus, Ferrari 250 TR and the aforementioned Aston Martin DBR1.

As the rest of the 250 Ferrari series, Testa Rossa relied on 3-litre 12-cylinder engine with 6 Weber carburettors, capable for 300 hp. They were transferred to the rear axle via 4-speed manual transmission.
