For many, the idea of owning a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa is all but a dream.

The reality is, it’s a car that only a handful of people can afford.

That was until The Little Car Company unveiled the Ferrari Testa Rossa J ‘Pacco Gara’.

The world expert in hand-building junior cars has partnered with Ferrari to launch a special edition of the Testa Rossa J.

It’s a fully-electric, 75 percent scale reproduction of the legendary 250 Testa Rossa, which powered Ferrari to Le Mans glory three times.

It’s a proper mini racer, boasting a roll cage offering protection for those wishing to take it on the track.


A bolt-on modification, the racing roll cage is removable, so you’ve got the option to alternate the appearance of the Ferrari Testa Rossa J.

Ferrari enthusiasts and collectors alike will appreciate the finer details when stepping into the cockpit, too.

The Pacco Garo offers a Sabelt racing harness for a true racing feel, which is bolted to the chassis and rollhoop.

Another nod to Ferrari’s monumental racing pedigree, Sabelt harnesses are also used on the Scuderia’s F1 cars.

And true to the original 250 Testa Rossa, an additional exterior mirror has been fitted to the driver’s side, along with period-correct spotlights.

Bringing drivers closer to the feel of the original, the addition of adjustable dampers and brake bias enables them to tune the balance of their Ferrari Testa Rossa J.

Just like the original, a tonneau cover over the passenger side has also been incorporated.

It’s in the same Ferrari leather as the interior of the car, which is offered in a variety of color combinations, hand-selected by Ferrari’s Centro Stile.

Underneath the glorious aesthetic upgrades are a number of performance enhancements that offer more power and give the driver an enriched racing experience.

These include drilled brake discs, and a quicker ratio steering rack, all creating a more responsive and track-focused car.

The biggest performance enhancement in the Pacco Gara edition of the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is its increased power to 14kW.

Purely a software upgrade, this takes the Testa Rossa J from 16bhp to 19bhp.

Ferrari Testa Rossa J price

The Little Car Company hasn’t provided a price for the Ferrari Testa Rossa J, but we bet it won’t come cheap.

In 2021, the company launched a limited-edition Aston Martin DB5 that cost $109,000 (at today’s exchange rate).

The Ferrari Testa Rossa J will make its public debut later this month at the International Concours of Elegance at St. Moritz, Switzerland.
