Believed to be the sole Testa Rossa to remain unrestored, the 1957 factory
has its original engine, gearbox and bodywork.
It raced at Le Mans in 1957, running as high
as second but ultimately withdrawing before
the finish, it picked up wins at the 1,000km
of Buenos Aires and 12 Hours of Sebring a
year later - both with racing legends Phil Hill
and Peter Collins behind the wheel.
Hartley Jr. quote: “This is possibly the
greatest car in the world, driven by the
greatest drivers in the golden era of sportscar racing, yet remaining unrestored and
completely original. I’m sure that
if you were to take a swab of the interior,
you’d find DNA traces of Phil Hill, Peter Collins
and Mike Hawthorn still present.
