It’s hard to think of any race car as hot-blooded, beautiful, and successful as the 1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa. The car emerged as a response to a new rule imposed by the FIA to limit engine size to 3 liters in an attempt to slow top speeds. Ferrari utilized their famous and reliable Colombo V12 engine, and Sergio Scaglietti, the brilliant automobile designer and coachbuilder, was responsible for this masterpiece design of originality. The Testa Rossa was lithe, sporty, and elegant, and was especially notable for its iconic pontoon like fenders that increased the air intake to cool the brakes.
This model eclipsed its competition and elevates itself above the array of racing cars produced by the Scuderia in this era by leading Ferrari to win several Sports Car World Championships and three consecutive victories at Le Mans in 1958, ’60, and ’61. The beautiful bodywork and outstanding performance makes the 250 Testa Rossa the iconic 1950’s Ferrari benchmark.
