Ferrari Testa Rossa Sets $12 Million Auction Record...

Ferrari Testa Rossa Sets $12 Million Auction Record

RM Auctions and Sotheby's set a world auction record yesterday when they sold a 1957 Ferrari 250 TR for $12,156,252. Ferrari only made 21 examples of this Testa Rosa which returned to its birthplace in Maranello to set a new world price record. I thought I would share these photos with you of this fascinating car.

Go Speed Racer Go

When I look at the Ferrari Testa Rossa pictured above, I can't help but think of Speed Racer's Mach 5 which is pictured below. I think the Mach 5 must have been based on lines of the Testa Rosa. The Mach 5 looks like a Corvette Stingray and the Testa Rosa mixed into one car.

For some other reason, this Testa Rosa's paint job ironically reminds me of the Double Red Rolex Sea Dweller pictured in the post after this one–the whole black, white and sliver color combination with a touch of red.

In the photo below, the Testa Rosa reminds me of the Batmobile

The Ferrari Testa Rosa has a V-12 that produces 300 bhp at 7,200 rpm
