Description

Development of the 250 Testa Rossa, or “red head,” began in the spring of 1957 as Ferrari sought to create a successor to the 500 TRC in anticipation of lower displacement limits that would soon be imposed by the Commissione Sportiva Internazionale. The first 250 TR prototype was assembled on a 290 MM chassis with an enveloped body and power from Ferrari’s Colombo V12. The original prototype, chassis 0666, was rebodied in late 1957 with pontoon-fendered coachwork designed to facilitate brake cooling.
This Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa was rebody in the early 1980s in the UK and features aluminum coachwork of the early bodywork of Ferrari’s factory 250 TR prototype.
Based on the shortened chassis of a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE, the car is said to have remained under the stewardship of a Colorado Springs resident between 1996 to 2022 .
Power is provided by the original 3.0-liter Colombo V12 that is equipped with six dual-throat Weber carburetors, red-painted valve covers, and twin distributors.
Finished in a red and white livery, the car also features a original four-speed manual transmission, four-wheel disc brakes,
coil-spring suspension,
15” Borrani wire wheels,
a riveted aluminum fuel tank.
