This Italian coachwork pedal car was originally built to replicate a Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa for a child to play with. It has a 180-watt, 12-volt engine; independent coil spring front suspension, and could travel at a top speed of 8.5 mph. Approximately 25 were produced but only a few remain in existence today. This Ferrari Testa Rossa Pedal Car was designed and manufactured by the renowned Italian automobile design and coachbuilding company Carrozzeria Scaglietti. Carrozzeria Scaglietti is also responsible for the design and coachwork found on our collection’s 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa.
