1958 Ferrari 250 TR Spyder
One of the most successful race cars built by Ferrari, the 250 TR, or Testa Rossa (Italian for “red head”), was named for the red valve covers on the engine and not the famous red body color now associated with Ferrari. The 1958 Testa Rossa received a powerful three-liter V-12 engine, an upgrade from the two-liter, four-cylinder version of previous Testa Rossas. A Scuderia Ferrari team car, this 250 TR debuted in Argentina at the 1000km Buenos Aires, where it was driven by Luigi Musso and legendary Belgian driver Olivier Gendebien.
