This street-legal 1961 250 Testa Rossa was acquired by Ralph Lauren in 1985. It won the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1961 and defended its title the following year. Ferrari built only about three dozen 250 Testa Rossas, and Lauren’s roadster is one of only two styled by the coachbuilder Medardo Fantuzzi.
Lauren’s collection also includes a 1958 250 Testa Rossa bodied by Carrozzeria Scaglietti.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
