A phenomenal, large-scale (1:12) image of the near-mythological Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa from the late 50's, progenitor of the legendary line of TR's that dominated motor sports well into the 1960s. This model represents the pontoon-fendered variety of TR; arguably the most desirable and iconic of the series. The model's large size (approx. 13" long) allowed the Italian manufacturer to incorporate a wealth of detail, from the beautiful wire wheels, to the delicate hood release pins and leather straps, to the engine's turned velocity stacks, to the plethora of cockpit detail, including glazed instruments surrounded by chromed bezels and switchgear. The chassis tubular framework is also revealed within the cockpit. Its all there, right down to the quartet of megaphone exhausts prominently displayed at the rear. Just like the real car, this model is drop-dead gorgeous, and will be an absolute attention getter at the center of any collection. #08 in an edition of only 50 worldwide. Model is affixed to wooden base, includes aluminum information plaque and protective plexi dust cover. One example only.
