The Little Car Company is a UK-based brand that is known for making exquisite hand-built scaled reproductions of iconic cars. After introducing the Bugatti Baby II and Aston Martin DB5 Junior, the company has come up with yet another masterpiece. The Little Car Company has partnered with Ferrari to create a 3/4-sized recreation of the legendary Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa. The 250 Testa Rossa is one of the most successful race cars for Ferrari with 18 victories to its name, including podiums at the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 1000 km Buenos Aires and four wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The officially sanctioned replica has been named Testa Rossa J and features an electric powertrain like the previous two models by The Little Car Company. Aimed at kids, the Testa Rossa J’s 12 kW electric motor gives it an estimated top speed of 37 mph. There are also four selectable driving modes—Novice, Comfort, Sport, Race. Putting it into Novice mode limits the motor’s output to 1 kW and 12 mph of top speed, while the Sport and Race modes unleash the full potential of the powertrain.
In terms of design, the junior model has been built from original drawings sourced from the Ferrari Classiche department to make it as authentic as possible. The car measures 10 feet in length and gets a hand-beaten aluminum body which is finished in Ferrari’s iconic Rosso Corsa red paint. Even the wheels feature the original’s spoked-wheel design with a center lock. It also boasts Ferrari’s authentic badge at the front. The interior is wrapped in the same leather used on full-size Ferraris and the cabin also features a removable Nardi steering wheel. Only 299 examples will be built, but the price is yet to be announced.
