Ferrari F250Testarossa 1957 GLOSTER GLADIATOR.psd
The design of the Ferrari F250 Testarossa in 1957 is a true example of art and engineering. It is a three-seater sports car that was designed with a new philosophy for the times. It is unique in its design, with two long slender windscreens, and the front and rear wheel air vents positioned in such a way as to allow for optimal air flow through the radiator channels. These vents are also used to vent the exhaust system, which by design does not require central heat distribution. There are also side skirts on this model, which helps to keep down the drag, and to improve the cooling of the engine.
The bodywork on this car was designed by Pininfarina, who were at that time regarded as one of the leading car and motor-parts manufacturers. The body has been made in a radical way, using only raised strips of fiberglass to join the sections to give the impression of a contour. The sections are then fitted with carbon fiber running gear to complete the sleek and streamlined look of the finished product. The bodywork incorporates a rear diffuser, a rear spoiler, and front intakes, which are both functional and designed to enhance the looks of the car rather than restrict performance.
This car is now considered to be a collectible, and is held in high esteem by those who appreciate performance cars. The rarity of this car means that it is not commonly collected, and the creation of the first Ferrari F250 Testarossa from this model means that only a select group of Ferrari enthusiasts will ever have the opportunity to own one. The creation of this one-of-a-kind vehicle is also thought to mark the beginning of what is known as the'Ferrari Renaissance. As the world's car makers continually strive to create a better, faster, and more elegant vehicle, the Ferrari F250 Testarossa proves that innovation can take two steps forward, while Tradition only takes one step.
