Description

The Ferrari 250 TR 61 Spyder Fantuzzi was a front-engined racecar made by Ferrari in 1961. Known for its distinctive “sharknose” which it shared with another Ferrari of the same era, the Ferrari 156.

This aerodynamic design was controversial and successful in racing, but Ferrari began changing the look almost immediately. The engine had the same displacement as the rest of the 250 series but was tuned to produce far more power. The front styling of the 250 TR61 pictured served as inspiration to the Ferrari F430 road car.

The 250 TR lines of 1960 and 1961 were dominant racers. It also won 12 hours of Sebring in 1962 with the team Scuderia SSS Repubblica di Venezia.
