For those still unaware, our hobbies and interests can make an impression on our kids even at an early age. Thus, most families share what they love with their children any chance they could. For the motoring enthusiasts out there, The Little Car Company is your source for miniature versions of iconic silhouettes. Like this Ferrari Testa Rossa J.
The last project we featured from the United Kingdom-based group was a collaboration with Tamiya. It was an 8:10-scale replica of an iconic R/C car from the Japanese model kit company. The Wild One MAX was more than just a copy, it was a drivable platform for both kids and adults.
Unfortunately, the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is exclusively for the little ones only. It would be awesome for owners of an actual Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa to grab this for their collection.The Little Car Company will offer a one-off Pebble Beach Edition. This one will hit the bidding block courtesy of Bonhams at its The Qual Auction in Carmel.
According to the manufacturer, it is an officially licensed reproduction, albeit at a 75% scale. The Italian carmaker was kind enough to share drawings from its Ferrari Classiche and have its Centro Stile oversee the production. The Little Car Company is hand-forming the body out of aluminum. Powering the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is an 8V electric motor with a top speed of 50 mph.
Depending on the country where the owners are, the performance will be throttled to 19 mph only. The cockpit flaunts red leather upholstery, Ferrari 488 Pista pedals, and a Nardi steering wheel. Its Borrani wire wheels are shod in Pirelli Cinturato tires. Only 299 examples of the Ferrari Testa Rossa J will make it to production.Learn More
