One of the most storied racing cars of all time, Testa Rossa was Ferrari`s flagship for endurance races. The light aluminium body was designed by Pininfarina and constructed under coachbuilder Scaglietti. Its victory at the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1958 brought worldwide fame to the car and its drivers, Olivier Gendebien and Phil Hill.

“Lucybelle” is the name by which the Testa Rossa with the chassis number 0732 first came to be known in its good old days. The owner Ed Hugus was an American, who decided to have the car painted in American racing white with double blue stripes. Admittedly, that appearance was unusual for a Ferrari. But take a look for yourself: Isn’t it strikingly beautiful?

One of Lucybelle’s racing highlights was a 7th rank at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1958, where it had the starting number 22. The drivers Ed Hugus and Ernie Erickson won their spot by competing triumphantly against a large number of tough competitors. Our model represents the current status of the car.

A flawless finish brings the racing stripes and starting number into a nice contrast. The two additional headlights are due to the endurance challenge of the 24 Hours of Le Mans races. Otherwise, the craftsmanship and quality of this item are equal to those of the heralded version already released (CMC071).

Ferrari Testa Rossa, Artikel / item M-080

One more additional information regarding the limited edition quantity of the above named item. Originally the white Testa Rossa was announced as a limited edition of 5,000 pieces. But as you all know, we shortly announced one further limited edition version of that type (item number M-086, limited to 2,000 pieces). Our limited factory capacity is now the reason that forced us to change the limited edition quantity of item M-080.

This item is now officially limited to 3,000 pieces world wide only.
