One of the most beautiful and desirable Ferraris ever to leave Maranello: The 250 “Pontoon Fendered” Testa Rossa. Completed in early 1958, chassis no. 0738 TR is one of only 19 special examples bodied by the renowned Italian coachbuilder Sergio Scaglietti. With nearly 20 period races and four overall victories, 0738 TR was active in competition for over a decade. In recent years, it has benefited from a full restoration at Ferrari Classiche, where it was Red Book certified as one of few remaining TRs to retain its matching engine and gearbox.
