The Little Car Company, manufacturers of the limited-edition Ferrari Testa Rossa J, is delighted to announce that deliveries to customers around the world are well underway. Designed and built in collaboration with the famous Italian marque, the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is an electric, 75% scale replica of its famous namesake which won the 1958 Le Mans 24 Hours. Developed and handcrafted using the original design drawings, supplied by Ferrari’s Classiche Department, the Testa Rossa J is limited to just 299 vehicles.
The first owners have now begun getting behind the wheel with two examples received by Mr Grouwels, a collector in the Netherlands. As with all cars designed and built by The Little Car Company, Mr Grouwels’s Ferrari Testa Rossa Js are totally bespoke. One features raw unpainted aluminium bodywork, a stripped-back specification that exposes and accentuates the carefully constructed bodywork, presenting the car in all its aerodynamic glory.
Mr Grouwels’ second Testa Rossa J takes a vastly different aesthetic form. Visually striking, it has been painted in a stunning Rosso Mugello, blending beautifully with elegant Giallo Modena stripes. The hand-crafted interior is made of a cioccolato frau leather, providing sublime comfort for both driver and passenger. Even its Borrani wheels, chosen specifically by Mr Grouwels, hark back to the original and are re-proportioned for this reimagining.
Speaking about the new additions to his already impressive collection, Mr Grouwels said: “The cars have been driving excellently and have been great additions to my collection. These liveries immediately stood out for me, and they both look outstanding. To own a unique Ferrari licensed model like this was an absolute must for my collection.”
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said: “The commencement of Ferrari Testa Rossa J deliveries is a huge milestone for The Little Car Company, and we are pleased to see customers, like Mr Grouwels, immediately enjoy them as intended. For our customers, we aim to make the specification process as exciting as possible, giving them the freedom to explore the options at their fingertips. As with everything we do at The Little Car Company, we pride ourselves on attention to detail and liaise closely with customers to offer them a personalised experience that results in the creation of a car that is truly unique to them.”
As an official Ferrari model, the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is built to meet the highest of automotive standards. The Little Car Company’s team of engineers have taken great inspiration from the craftsmanship of the original, using the same hand-beaten aluminium bodywork and hand-beating techniques. Customers across the globe continue to take delivery of their bespoke Ferrari Testa Rossa Js, with those lucky few getting their hands on one of the 299 limited pieces.
