Stunning Ferrari 250 Testarossa (1963) POA
- Location: Leicestershire, United Kingdom
The 250 3-litre V12 Ferrari engine has 6 40DCN Weber carburettors and now runs on unleaded petrol. The engine and gearbox have both benefited from a rebuild by Shiltech. It has a bespoke limited slip differential and runs on 16” Borrani wheels. The TR is a very exciting and rewarding car to drive, not unlike a Maserati 250F.
The gearbox is standard GTE without the overdrive unit and utilises a modified GTE propshaft. A chromed Ferrari style gate with reverse lock-out has been added. The rear axle is GTE with a bespoke limited slip differential (LSD) and up-dated taper bearings and lip seals. Location of the axle is by trailing arms, watts linkage and coil springs over telescopic Koni dampers. The front wheels are 5"x16" polished aluminium Borrani rims. The rear wheels are 5.5"x16" polished aluminium Borrani. All wheels are fitted with Michelin 16"x600 Pilote race tyres. The spokes are stainless steel and the knock-ons for the wheels are made from billet stainless steel. All four wheels have a chrome hub.
The chassis is original GTE modified to suit with a bespoke all aluminium body, boot, bonnet and doors. The headlight covers and windscreen are also bespoke.
Instruments are modified GTE with remodeled faces, glass and bezels.
The car has its own website detailing its history, please visit www.ferrari250.com for more in depth information.
The car is currently undergoing preparation, more details will be added soon (note: pictures are pre preparation.
