The Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, or 250 TR, is a racing sports car built by
Ferrari from 1957 to 1961. It was introduced at the end of the 1957
racing season in response to rule changes that enforced a maximum engine
displacement of 3 litres for the 24 Hours of Le Mans and World Sports
Car Championship races. The 250 TR was closely related to earlier
Ferrari sports cars, sharing many key components with other 250 models
and the 500 TR.
The 250 TR achieved many racing successes, with variations winning 10
World Sports Car Championship races including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in
1958, 1960, and 1961, the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1958, 1959 and 1961,
the Targa Florio in 1958, the 1000 Km Buenos Aires in 1958 and 1960 and
the Pescara 4 Hours in 1961. These results led to World Sports Car
Championship constructor's titles for Ferrari in 1958, 1960 and 1961.
