Famous for powering Phil Hill and Peter Collins to victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1958, Car number 14 (this Ferrari 250 TR model) was one of 6 TRs that competed in the 1958 running of the endurance race, including three Works entries and three privateers. Sebring is notorious (even to this day) as a circuit of high attrition, and with this in mind Hill and Collins decided beforehand that they would not drive at ten tenths in the early stages, saving both the car’s brakes and gearbox. They sat happily in fourth position in the first hour, then fell to fifth and stayed there for the next three hours. In the fifth hour, both Astons experienced a gearbox problem and so before the halfway mark, number 14 took the lead. Covering 200 laps, 1040 miles and an average speed of 86.5mph, this was the very car that established the all-new Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa as the main sports car championship contender for that year, with its second straight victory in the series.

This fine 1:8 scale Amalgam Collections Ferrari 250 TR model has been handcrafted and finished in the Amalgam workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed Amalgam to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both Ferrari’s engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
